Online Training Opportunities by CLMI

     CLMI offers high quality, on-demand online training that is compliant with the standards of OSHA (the Occupational Safety and Health Administration) and provides the most current safety information in an appropriate and effective manner.

     Departments are encouraged to utilize the University CLMI Training Server, with courses sponsored by Risk & Safety Management.  Instruction templates can be customized to provide step-by-step directions, and printable certificates are available at the completion of each course.
     Courses on the CLMI Training Server are accessed by enrolling as a new user with a first initial/last name (or using an existing CLMI log-in).  The Assigned Courses box lists the available training options, minus any courses already completed by the logged-in user (shown in the Recently Completed Courses box). 

     The entire CLMI online catalog lists hundreds of other courses (with preview videos) that could be made available for employee training.  Only courses with "vod" in the course ID (i.e., clmiddpv_vod) are compatible with the University training platform.   To add courses from the catalog, or for any comments or concerns about this training program, please contact Risk & Safety Management at extension 2250.
