Hello! Here’s the latest update from ECE-TRIS:
We have officially launched the revised Training Search area. You may have already noticed it has been available for some time, but we are ready to make the old search inactive and wanted to let you all know. This notice is also to remind you where to find instructions on using the new area.
In 2021, regulation changes impacted the frequency of repeating the same course for clock hour credit. The regulation states non-face to face training is repeatable for credit once per 5-year period. Our system had to make a modification to comply with that regulation change in order to track if a participant completed a webinar more than once in a 5-year period. To automatically track if a non-face to face training has been previously completed, a program* is required for each webinar, online training or independent study.
*Reminder: Programs are course templates for training content that is delivered by webinar, web-based/online/on-demand, or independent studies. These are the courses you enter through the Create Webinar, WBT or IS area.
Summary of Change
The program you create for Webinars will be used to create a date/time specific training that can be posted on the calendar. Prior to this change, webinar programs would have a date range instead of specific date.
Instructions on the New Search Functionality
A video tutorial was developed to step you through use of the new training search to create a webinar session. This 5 minute video explains the set up of the new training search and how specifically addresses webinars.
