JAILCON 2020_Enroll the Start_Screenshot

At the top left, as well as in the center of the screen, click on the green “START COURSE” button to begin the session.

 

If you are unable to complete a course in one session, you may resume later by navigating to the course and clicking the blue “RESUME WHERE YOU LEFT OFF” button.

 

  • As you go through each section of the training, the lesson objects (videos, knowledge checks, etc.) will show a “green check mark” when completed.  In order to move ahead, these check marks must be green. (NOTE: Please be aware that you must watch videos until the very end for the“green check mark” to appear, otherwise the lesson objects will not be marked “complete” and you will not be able to move forward.)

     

  • Videos will not allow you to skip ahead the first time you watch them.  However, after they’ve been watched, you are free to rewind and/or fast forward as you need.
  •  
  • The “end marker” for each course is the last video or knowledge check.  However, as most agencies require a test to receive training credit, you may complete the OPTIONAL TEST at the end to meet the test requirement.

  • For individuals seeking any level of NIJO Certification (NCCO, NCCS, NCCE) or if a test is required for your individual state’s certification requirements, you must score 100% on the OPTIONAL TEST to meet NIJO Certification training requirements. The test may be taken as many times as needed to achieve 100%.

IMPORTANT:  Be sure to download and save each of your certificates as you complete courses.  This will ensure that you have all of them saved on your computer before your access to the training platform ends.  (END DATES:  Original Conference – October 14th, Session 2 – November 30th, Session 3 – December 31st)

To download and print/save your training certificates for proof of training:

1. Click on the “MENU” button in the top left corner (three horizontal lines);
2. Click “MY ACTIVITIES”;
3. Click “COURSES

Once you’re in the “COURSE” page, you will see a list of all your courses.  4. Click the “User Status” header at the top to sort the list and see all of your “COMPLETED” courses marked in green.  

5. Download all of your completion certificates, by clicking the “Certificate Icon”.

Live webinars showcase exceptional presenters and panelists on critical subjects facing our profession.  The format provided attendees during the original conference dates the ability to interact by providing feedback, participating in polls, and asking questions in real time through the “chat” features.  

 

For those who were unable to participate in the live webinar, you will still be able to access the webinar recordings by clicking on the “LIVE WEBINARS” button on the home page or navigate to that page using the Menu.
