Not all online training programs are built equal. From current course topics to streamlined CEU reporting, a good provider will offer more than simple check-the-box certification. Use this checklist to ensure that your online training program has what it takes to keep your employees engaged and certified.

1. Are the course topics relevant?

Unnecessary, outdated materials waste your employees’ valuable time. Make sure your training program provides lessons your PMPs can actually use.

ProTraining’s technical courses are regularly updated with the latest information on insect biology, pesticide safety, and more. Users can also expand their knowledge with business and safety classes as well as free supplier-provided courses for helpful product tips.

2. Is the format engaging?

Do your employees’ eyes glaze over at the thought of taking a course? Training programs are only as effective as their ability to keep students’ attention.

ProTraining online courses incorporate a variety of interactive media and quizzes to keep lessons fresh and interesting.

3. Is training accessible across devices?

PMPs need training that can keep up with their busy schedules. Training that requires uninterrupted, distraction-free sessions on a computer just doesn’t cut it.

The ProTraining platform is accessible by phone, tablet, desktop, and laptop, making it easy for your employees to start, pause, and resume lessons on the go.

4. Is the training CEU-compliant?

CEU accreditation involves strict guidelines for course content, time length, and testing protocols — all of which can vary by state and province. Make sure your training provider is up to date with all the latest regulations in your area.

ProTraining works with over 40 accrediting agencies across the US and Canada to ensure our technical courses are in strict CEU compliance. 

5. Is CEU reporting included?

Once courses are complete, receiving CEU certification requires a complex process of reporting and verification. Choose a training provider that can help prevent lost or forgotten credits.

The ProTraining platform streamlines the CEU process, automatically reporting course attendance and credit information to states and provinces on behalf of every student. 

6. Can you store and access transcripts?

Keeping track of one set of transcripts is challenging enough — managing all your employees’ courses and credits is no small feat. Your training provider should be able to help you save and view your employees’ progress and records at a glance.

ProTraining stores student transcripts dating back to 1998. Managers can see user statuses, view reasoning behind passed and failed courses, pinpoint training opportunities, and print certificates of completion on one powerful portal.

7. Can you easily manage users and classes?

Individually purchasing classes is tedious. Then again, not all PMPs need to take the same courses. Save time by partnering with a training provider that provides flexible options for purchasing and assigning courses.

The ProTraining platform allows managers to easily purchase classes in bulk, assign specific classes to specific employees, and add and remove users from the database.

 

With a diverse range of classes, powerful management tools, and a streamlined CEU accreditation process, ProTraining provides the industry’s best online training.
