Qualification and Certification Testing

LearnTech® training incorporates interactive learning checks throughout the instructional sequences. Certification tests are criterion-referenced and module-based with feedback on every response for enhanced learning.

Standard Compliant

Workplace Hazardous Materials conforms to the ISO 16-heading standard for materials safety datasheets, and includes definitions provided by the Canadian Centre for Occupational Heath and Safety (CCOHS). This course presents a generic theoretical introduction to WHMIS concepts. Site-specific training is also required in order for employers to fulfill legal obligations. We recommend this blended approach to ensure that this very important topic is presented in a standardized way and localized to the specific needs of each department.
