See How CRIS Members Feel About This Renewal

"It was very informative, easy to understand, and the videos and simulations were very helpful. The accident and fatality interviews with co-workers and family members was very impactful. There were a few workplace simulations where additional prompts on how to proceed to the next section of the simulations or next lesson would have been helpful. Overall, it was a great course."
"I loved the videos, short quizzes, and simulations. This was setup so that I could listen to the information and learn, review what I learned immediately afterwards, and then practice what I learned. It was perfect for helping me to really understand and retain the information."
"It’s a fresh take and engaging approach for CRIS Renewals"
