Courses within the Safety 1st Training Center are comprised of multiple components. These components must be completed before credit for the course is achieved. The most common course components are:
- Lesson: The content that provides information to the student, typically an e-learning presentation.
- Exam: An online, multiple-choice exam designed to gauge the student's knowledge retention from the lesson.
- On-the-Job Training (OJT): Provided to the student by the company trainer on topics related to a course. An OJT Resource is provided within most courses and the trainer must certify that OJT training has been performed where applicable.
- Practical Exam: The practical exam is a final proficiency check to verify that the student has achieved the knowledge, judgement, and skills necessary to perform a given task. Not all courses require a practical exam, but those that do, include a Practical Exam Resource. Trainers must certify when practical exams are completed.
