FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q1. Can an employee enter and exit the system and work at his/her own pace on the equipment?
Q2. Will we be paid for doing the online training?

For certain employees identified as not having regular access to the necessary technology, group/online sessions of the required safety training will be conducted.
Q3. How long does the online training take?

Q6. Why does the system disconnect my computer from the website?

Q8. May I complete other courses offered on the website that have not been assigned to me?
A8. Yes. You may complete all of the non-required courses offered by Safe Schools on the website even if they are not assigned to your specific job title. Actually, we strongly encourage everyone to take advantage of all the resources available on the website.
Q9. Why can't we just watch videos as we have done in the past?
A9. This system requires active participation by the individual, both in viewing and assessments, resulting in a more thorough understanding of the subject. In addition, as the material is web-based, it may be updated as needed to reflect new information or regulatory requirements.
