4 - Is the certificate recognized for being EAD?
Yes. The blended and distance learning modalities were recognized as valid modalities for teaching the mandatory training of NRs on March 13, 2018. NT54 came to end the myth that training in this modality was invalid, as believed by part of the market.
5 - Is it mandatory to take the on-site course after the online course?
In order for the certificate to be validated, some courses have the obligation to complement it through a face-to-face course after completion of EAD. Courses with this need are specified in the methodology and it is up to the employer to provide the practical part.
6 - How do I check my progress in courses?
On your study platform you will have access to the 'Progress' icon.
By clicking on this option, it will be possible to view courses that are in progress, completed, not started, as well as graphs of their evolution.

No. Some courses available may be released for tasting to the user for further knowledge. The information will be in the course description, in the option Certification.
8 - What is NT54?
Known as Technical Note 54, it regulates the use of distance learning, blended or hybrid teaching modalities for mandatory training provided for in the Regulatory Norms.
9 - Do distance learning courses meet all safety standards?
All training is prepared following the good practices of the ISO 9001 ,14001,45001 standards that guide the implementation of the SGI.
10 - What is the Pedagogical Project of the course?
The courses have a PI - Instructional Plan. Several resources are used, such as 3D animations, instructional videos, infographics, simulators, games, texts for reading, handouts and various auditory reinforcers, in addition to which, all classes are narrated and interactive. The PI also identifies in its content the evaluation system used and the need for practical training, as determined by the NR in question. These combined resources aim to apply in practice Instructional Design techniques, Bloom's Taxonomy activities, Andragogical techniques and Skinner's Reinforcement Contingency Theory. The purpose of training is to teach adult learners new behaviors. These strategies contribute to retaining the content learned, always focusing on enhancing the worker's learning.
11 - Is the duration of an ODL course the same as a face-to-face one?
The duration of the distance learning course must be equal to the duration of the in-person course, as the training is provided for in NR, which stipulates the minimum duration required. The duration of training meets what is established in the NRs, as well as ensuring that all contents of the teaching grid are taught to the worker.
