• Manageable course lessons have review quizzes to measure understanding and ensure that the information is absorbed.
• Cross references to the ACH Rules and federal regulations direct users to additional information on the topic.
• The Manager’s Handbook helps you document, track, and test each employee’s knowledge and understanding of the material.
