The Safety 1st Training Center contains many courses, and Course Tracks are a method of presenting and organizing those courses to the student.
Each track is comprised of Blocks which allows Firm Admins to create some level of freedom for their students. When multiple courses are placed in a Block, the student can complete those courses in any order they choose. Blocks are ordered sequentially, however, meaning students must complete all the courses in Block 1 before they can access the courses in Block 2, and so on.
NATA has created default Course Tracks for each job Role that will meet the needs of a significant number of users:
- Professional Line Service Track
- Line Service Supervisor Track
- CSR Track.
Firm Admins can also create Custom Course Tracks. For each job Role in the Safety 1st Training Center, there are a set of associated courses that might be needed by an employee performing that job. And depending on a firm’s specific services offered, some courses might not be needed at all (i.e.: Deicing is not likely going to be needed for a firm in Miami). Creating a custom Course Track allows Firm Admins to specify which courses students will need to take and in what order.
Notes on Course Tracks:
- Course tracks simply guide the order and timing your students take courses. They DO NOT change Ratings.
- Custom Course Tracks must be designated a Role. That Role then dictates the courses that are available to build out that track (i.e. a track designated the CSR role will not have all the courses available to the Line Service Role).
- Significant care should be used when building custom course tracks. Firm Admins should consider:
- The Ratings a student needs (be sure to reference the Ratings Guide when building a custom Course Track).
- The timing of training.
- The specific courses that will be needed that may not contribute to a Rating.
- When creating a custom Course Track, strive to create a track that can be used by the student to cover all their required training. Use different custom tracks for when an employee advances to a new job title or your company begins providing additional services that require training (i.e.: Aircraft Deicing).
- There is no limit to the number of Course Tracks you can create.
