What and Why?

What's In The Human Resources Training Courses?

Our human resources training courses are regulation-compliant, and our online versions fulfills classroom training requirements.

These presentations include intermittent practice quiz questions to prepare for the final written exam included with the courses. In addition to the written exam, these courses also include a checklist for employers to use when administering a practical exam.

Though you will still need to familiarize yourself with all other applicable federal, state, and local standards, these trainings encompass the following federal regulations:

  • OSHA Act of 1970 General Duty Clause
  • The Civil Rights Act of 1964
  • The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) of 1993
  • The National Labor Relations Act (NRLA) of 1935
  • The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990
  • Why Do I Need Human Resources Training?

    In line with the OSH Act of 1970, employers are supposed to provide their employees with a safe and healthful workplace. Our human resources trainings are aimed at creating a safer workplace for employees.

    According to federal regulations, employees and supervisors need to be properly trained before they start working. Regulations for refresher training on human resources topics are typically very specific to the state you’re in.

    For example, in California, sexual harassment training is required every two years, but in Colorado it’s not required. Furthermore, refresher training requirements vary from topic to topic. However, that does not undermine the importance of being trained on these topics.

    Human Resources Training Frequently Asked Questions

    How often do I need human resources training?

    Regulations require human resources training for employees and supervisors–on that, there is no question. Where confusion exists is how often employees and supervisors need training or recertification. Outside of the initial class, it is important that employers comply with any applicable federal and state regulations.

    When federal and state regulations do not specify how often refresher training should take place, we recommend every three years. Here’s why:

    As far as this 3-year human resources training certification goes, regulations are very specific when it comes to certain topics. However, on everything else they are not so clear. They just state the employer must regularly provide awareness training for their employees. Following industry best practices, we’ve adopted this 3-year term in order to help employers comply with the general standard of regularly providing and proving training.

    Ultimately, it is up to the employer to determine how frequently their employees and supervisors need to be trained. Many of our customers require it more often, annually even. Others may stretch it out a bit. However, it is always best to adopt the strictest standard when regulations are not clear.

    So, with that in mind, we say employees and supervisors must be re-evaluated as often as federal and state regulations dictate, or at least every three years if they don’t specify.

    How much are human resources course prices?

    Our human resources course prices start at $79/person for online training, $399 for the classroom kit (train as many as you need), $650 for the online train the trainer course + the kit, and custom pricing for onsite training.

    I’ve operated human resources for 30 years. Do I need to take a human resources course/class, a written exam, and a practical exam still? Or can I just take a written human resources test?

    Yes, you need to take applicable human resources training courses. No matter how long you’ve been on the job, you must still adhere to federal and state regulations. There is no way around it. The extent of the classroom training can be adapted by the instructor according to student needs. The written exam proves mental competency and understanding of the safety principles taught. And the practical evaluation proves the employee or supervisor not only understands but is capable of working appropriately. Many of our customers believe the practical evaluation has the greatest overall value.

    I received human resources safety training at a different job. Do I need to be trained again by my new employer?

    This is a common question, especially among laborers-for-hire who may sub out from job to job. Technically, it is your current employer who is responsible for saying whether or not you have been trained specifically for the type of job. If you bring a training certificate to your new employer, they do not have to accept it. It is their right to require you to take their own training class. This is because if there is an incident, they will likely be responsible and need to prove to the authorities that they trained you on applicable human resources topics.

    Can you explain human resources certification? Who can train, evaluate, and certify operators?

    This, above all, causes a lot of confusion. Bottom line, regulations state that employers are responsible to train their employees. Generally speaking, there are three ways they can do this:

  • Train employees in-house with their own program
  • Hire a 3rd party to train the employees (on-site or off-site)
  • Use another company’s materials or online classes to train employees
  • In terms of using a 3rd party's safety training materials (like our human resources training kits on CD or our human resources online training classes) regulations do not recognize one company over another. They simply state that training needs to occur and outline the things an employee or supervisor should be trained on.

    When we do live training or offer human resources trainings online, people often assume we are the ones certifying the trainees. This is not true for any training company. We are simply assisting the employer by providing live human resources training or the training materials needed to help them certify their employees.

    How do I take the human resources practical evaluation if I take human resources safety training online?

    The online human resources course cover any requirements for the classroom portion. Many employers prefer online training because they know exactly what human resources training the employee or supervisor will receive. In live classes, the training sometimes varies. A written exam is included at the end of our online training courses. After the class and exam are finished, you and your safety managers will have immediate access to a practical evaluation checklist. This can be printed off and used by your supervisor to help him or her evaluate you. When the practical evaluation is done, they can sign it and file it with your exam. This will satisfy the requirements for certification.

    My trainee scored 80% on the human resources training exam. Did they pass or fails his human resources training course?

    Contrary to popular belief, regulations do not dictate what a passing score entails. That is ultimately up to the employer, who is also responsible for certifying (or authorizing) their employee to work responsibly. If an employer chooses to pass their employee at 80% on a human resources exam, that’s fine. But what if a question or two among the 20% missed could lead to an incident or lawsuit? Is it worth it? Our recommendation is that you always go over any missed questions with your trainees—even if they just missed one. Once they understand the principle missed, have them write their initials by the correct answer. That way, you are protecting them and those around them from potential incidents in the future.
