Training Coordinator Capabilities

We made a video tour of our Training Coordinator (TC) capabilities. TC access is available free for all our group accounts and lets you monitor student progress, enroll personnel, download certificates and training documentation, view expiring certificates, manage users, and pay for training at your convenience.

If you are responsible for ensuring that employees at your workplace are trained and in compliance, Eduwhere can help. We offer “Training Coordinator” accounts, which allow you to view the progress, payment, and expiration status for a group of trainees, as well as the ability to enroll new users and re-enroll existing users who are due for retraining. 

Training coordinators can monitor the progress of users in their training group, and send a reminder to those who may need a “gentle nudge” to complete their training. Once those training courses are complete, coordinators can download and print certificates. Of course, hard copies will still be sent by Eduwhere, unless the “go green” option was chosen.

Coordinators can also manage payments. Their portal will allow them to see which enrollments are still unpaid, and then make payments and download receipts for all enrollments in the group. Keeping track of which courses have been paid for can be a headache for those companies with employees taking training at different times throughout the year, but our training coordinator page can help.

New users can also be enrolled, and existing users re-enrolled, by the training coordinator. The portal allows the coordinator to view training which has recently expired, or which will expire soon, and ensures that the coordinator can keep employees on schedule and in-compliance with training requirements.

Here at Eduwhere, we want to help you make sure your employees stay in compliance. If you are already managing training for employees, give us a call (or send us an email) and let us set up a coordinator page for you.

Shipping Coronavirus

Coronavirus, also known by its virus name SARS-CoV-2 and its disease name COVID-19, is appearing more and more in our news and becoming a wider spread concern, creating questions about safety protocols when transporting specimens. Samples of blood or tissue may need to be shipped for diagnostic purposes, or to a lab studying the virus to better understand its characteristics. The US Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has recently provided interim guidelines for laboratory biosafety handling and processing of specimens associated with the Coronavirus Disease 2019, stating that specimens from suspected or potential patient cases of COVID-19 should be shipped under regulations for UN 3373 Biological Substance, Category B.

UN3373 Package Mark

COVID-19 isn’t the first infectious substance that clinical facilities have shipped using the UN 3373 Biological Substance, Category B designation. The US Department of Transportation have well established procedures in place to classify, describe, label, mark, and package patient specimens for proper and safe shipping. These regulations include requirements for triple packaging as well as adequate absorbent and cushioning materials to prevent breakage and leaking. There are also specific labeling and marking requirements for the outside of the package, including the UN3373 mark, the words “Biological Substance, Category B”, and the name and phone number of a responsible person who can answer questions in case of emergency. Additional steps are required if dry ice is used.
