POOL/PACT HR Virtual Training Participation and Attendance Policy 

Participants must register for training programs in order to attend.  Participants are expected to attend each session of a virtual training program in its entirety, whether a multi-day certificate program or a single-day non-certificate course.  Those who miss more than one hour of a session for certificate programs, or 25% of a non-certificate course will not be eligible to receive a certificate of completion (certificate programs) or certificate of attendance (non-certificate courses) until all sessions are completed in their entirety.  Those who do not complete the first session of a multi-day certificate program will not be allowed to attend the other sessions until the first session is completed.

In addition, participants must complete all pre-assessment and post-assessment evaluations.  Participants are expected to have their own workstation with a functioning webcam that remains on during the entirety of each training session, have access to a microphone to engage in group activities, and participate in all activities.  Failure to meet these expectations may disqualify participants from receiving a certificate of completion/attendance and continuing education units (CEUs).  Participants who do not have a functioning microphone or access to their own workstation within 15 minutes of the training start time will be removed from the session.  The technology and workstation requirements do not apply to entity-specific policy compliance trainings.

*POOL/PACT Risk Management Grants may be available to defray costs of webcams and/or microphones for member-owned equipment for staff unable to attend this training if not for budget constraints.
