About the Training Program

Each training module takes about 5 to 20 minutes to review. To navigate through the training program, use the buttons labeled previous and next at the bottom of each page. The left navigation panel can let you jump to other parts of the training. Some headings in the left panel include more than one web page, so to avoid missing any content, use the buttons at the bottom of the page to navigate through the training.

The training gives definitions for words that might not be familiar. These words are in bold type, and their definitions are in footnotes at the bottom of the pages where the words first appear.

At the end of most modules, there is a quiz with questions and answers that will review some of the important points. These quizzes will give you feedback for any items that you miss, but the number of correct answers is not used for scoring or for any other purpose. The source of the information in the text is indicated by citation numbers that correspond with a list of references at the end of each module.

You can take the training modules at your convenience. You do not have to complete the training in one block of time. If you leave the training before completing it, make a note of the Module and page number so you can resume it where you left off at another time.

If you are very busy, please start with Part 2, which discusses the strategies to reduce risks. When you have more time, you can take Part 1 to understand the risks and why these occur.
