Safety Training - NEW!

PMA offers a full range of online safety training programs through their partner ResourceNow. PMA classroom based courses can also be assigned and tracked on this website. We are confident you will find these courses relevant, timely and applicable to your job.

This online training system is accessed via a different website than the SOV's LINC, which contains all workplace training and is the system of record for employee training. Risk Management will send training records and certificates from this site to SOV LINC on a monthly basis, so records of all employee training will be kept at one place on SOV LINC.

SOV's LINC is the Learning Management System (LMS) for employee training records on all work related topics. The Agency of Transportation's (AOT) safety training center is Vtrans Training Center. The Vermont State Police's (VSP) training center is the Office of Professional Development. The Department of Correction's (DOC) safety training center is Vermont Correctional Academy. The Office of Risk Management's ResourceNOW training system is meant to complement the trainings offered by AOT, VSP and DOC for their employees. If you work for those departments, please follow the directives of your safety officers, supervisors, managers and/or directors before signing up for safety courses through ResourceNOW.

Cost: Free! The Office of Risk Management pays for the cost of training.
