Live Remote Training

Live Remote Training is led by a facilitator who conducts the course via the internet and speaks to a virtual classroom through a web camera. Students can participate via a variety of devices (PC, smartphone, tablet) and will sign in using their device. The facilitator and students can engage in discussions in real-time throughout the training day.

Live Remote Training provides a similar experience as our regular in-person courses. All participants enrolled in the course will be in the same online classroom on the same date and time. SSM facilitators will be verifying attendance through roll call, mini-quizzes, and tests.

FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions

What are the technology requirements for Live Remote Training?

You can enter the course via your browser on a desktop, tablet, or smartphone. You will need to have built-in or external speakers to hear the facilitator. Having a microphone and webcam is required. Additional information on set up can be found here: https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/categories/200101697-Getting-Started

When can I enter the virtual classroom of the course I’m attending?

We recommend logging in 10-15 mins in advance to ensure set up and testing of audio and video. You can enter the virtual classroom 15 minutes before the start time. If you arrive early, you can remain in the waiting room and wait for the facilitator to arrive. 

How can I be sure an employee of mine is attending and engaged in the course?

Even though the course is being held virtually, there is an Instructor who teaches it and takes attendance. If someone who registered does not attend, we will get in touch with whoever booked the course to let them know of the absence. 

We expect and encourage interactive participation in our Live Remote Training, just like we would in-person. Depending on each course there are group discussions, mini quizzes, and tests to again verify attendance, participation, and engaged learning.

I’ve registered for a course, what happens next?

You will be sent a confirmation email that includes instructions for joining the live remote training.

Is there a practical portion of the class for forklift?

With your certificates, you will be sent home a Lift Truck Notification about the next steps for when you are back in the workplace. Evaluations will be required in the workplace, which can either be done by your employer or SSM at a later date.

Will there still be a practical portion for other industrial equipment?

The Live Remote Training classes have been adapted to be as interactive as possible. The Instructor will incorporate additional demonstrations, videos, and pictures in lieu of practical training.

Do you still provide certificates?


How long are the Live Remote Training classes?

The classes are mainly 6 hours, running from 8am-2pm. The refresher courses are still 3 – 4 hours and run 8am-12pm or 1pm-5pm.

Do you offer all of your courses as Live Remote Training?

We offer most of our courses as Live Remote. We do not offer First Aid; this is only available as in-person training.
