Are You Ready To Be A H.E.R.O.?
We have partnered with MYCA:Learning to announce H.E.R.O., a new online course covering various types of harassment, discrimination, 
retaliation and resolution. H.E.R.O. is a mystery-based harassment and retaliation prevention program that invites course participants to interact in a 3D virtual environment and determine what specific employee was suspended and why. As a course participant, the learner (recruit) witnesses inappropriate behaviors exhibited by four cast characters. Along the way, the recruit assists with research on key terminology, company policies, and engage in interactions that reinforce learning. H.E.R.O. includes over 40 video scenarios that challenge participants' understanding of their employer's anti-harassment and retaliation policies while also teaching them when and where they apply. The supervisor course meets California's AB 1825 training requirements.


MYCA is a leader in designing innovative and interactive eLearning curriculums. To learn more about this course and many others please visit their website.

New Medical Certification Requirements for Commercial Driver's License Holders 
There is a new legislative change for driver qualification requirements in 2014. This paired with other changes are setting the foundation for a more comprehensive reporting infrastructure at state and federal levels.
Starting January 2014 all Commercial Driver's License (CDL) holders will be required to provide information to their State Driver Licensing Agency (SDLA) regarding the type of commercial motor vehicle they drive. Drivers operating in certain types of commerce will be required to submit a current medical examiners certificate to their SDLA to obtain certified medical status as part of their driving record. Those who fail to provide and keep up-to-date certificates with the SDLA will become not-certified and lose their CDL. In conjunction, by 2017 the newly enacted Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21) requires states to establish and maintain the capability to receive medical examiners certifications from certified medical examiners electronically as part of the state's driver information system.
