Mandatory H&S Training

ADSB is requiring daily occasional teachers to complete mandatory Health & Safety training (note: this is the same training that LTO teachers already completed during the September 5th PA Day).  Please check your Board email which outlines the requirements.  

Complete the course training via your Employee Portal > Courses Online > Courses.  You will be paid for a half-day if you complete the training by the deadline of Friday, September 15.  The Board can see who has completed the training, so neither timesheets nor the printing of completion certificates is required.
