What is THMG e-U?
The Haz Mat Guys e-University (THMG e-U) offers a virtual learning environment that is both educational and engaging. Unlike other online learning management systems (LMS), instructors at THMG e-U go above and beyond to ensure content not only meets the criteria set forth by regulatory agencies, but that it’s also presented in unique ways that leave a lasting impression on the user.
Our e-Learning Approach
All courses put forth by THMG e-U are created using a SCORM approach. SCORM stands for Sharable Content Reference Model and is an e-learning approach that ensures all users meet specific requirements as they move through courses. Each individual user understands their progress and is evaluated in real-time. This method ensures that all users attend and pass the required courses. A certificate of completion is generated upon successful completion and records and history of attendance are preserved.
Please note that THMG e-U prides itself on creating content that meets the unique requirement of each organization that it services. We have the ability to add/remove material in a very short time frame as situations change, as well as make custom courses to help address any local policy changes. We can also tailor courses to different user groups such as administrators, students, employees, etc.
