Conduct During Live Online Instructor-Led Courses
The safety of our participants is our utmost priority. In the event it is determined that a participant is actively driving a vehicle during a live online instructor-led class, the instructor will ask the participant to pull over and find a safe location in which to focus and participate. If the participant does not or cannot comply with attending the class without driving the vehicle, the instructor will dismiss the participant from the class. Online training (to include virtual) is non-refundable once the class has started. A dismissed participant may submit an appeal through our participant appeal process.
Additional considerations for these types of courses include the following.
- While the dress code for the virtual classroom is more relaxed than the traditional classroom, participants are expected to dress and be groomed in a respectful and appropriate manner during their virtual class sessions. The appropriateness of virtual classroom dress /grooming is at the discretion of the instructor.
- Some virtual courses may require you to be visible throughout the session. If the instructor requests that you keep your video on throughout the class, you must do so.
- Similarly, any request to turn off the video must also be promptly followed.
- Your audio must be muted throughout the session unless the instructor provides guidance to do otherwise or it is your turn to speak in class. Leaving on your audio will cause a distraction and disturbance to the class.
- Your screen name must match your registration name for attendance tracking purposes.
