_______________________________________________________________________

The Instructor program accomplishes these primary tasks for the employer: it teaches the instructor how to use proper applications and deliver training to employees, enables implementation of company practices and safety plans, teaches where to find answers and demonstrates proper record-keeping & documentation. This class maximizes efficiency & company legal compliance.

This class will make the instructor candidate aware of their liability and responsibilities, the employer’s liability and responsibilities and the laws and regulations pertaining to them. Instruction includes the implementation of applicable ANSI Standards and “best practices”.

Lastly, candidates will learn how to work with Comtrain’s Support Staff to acquire Certifications for their students.

The In-House Instructor must attend a ReCertification class every 24 months to stay current. Comtrain will not support an instructor that has not been recertified within the last 24 months.  Training is not authorized and therefore student certifications cannot be processed if an In-House Instructor’s certification has expired. In-House training classes must be conducted while an instructor is current for certification to be valid.

If your Instructor Certification has been expired for more than 12 months, you should call the Comtrain office to discuss ReCertification requirements.

Employers and Instructor candidates should read and understand the rules pertaining to the Comtrain In-House Instructor programs.
