Rather than delivering mandated training units in face-to-face assemblies, maintaining legal records using sign-in sheets, and struggling to complete specified training by a specific date. All training and assessment modules for each system have databases behind them, recording “successful completers” and creating legal records for you. You then have the potential to sort by school, by year or by name. The training and assessment modules are either created or reviewed by experts in each field. ComplianceDirector also allows a school system to create custom modules for their specific needs, with the same legal backup databases in place as legal records.
