2018 03 08 NHMTA collectors training 3-8-2018Listed below are answers to some commonly asked questions.
Q. How much can I save by performing collections on-site?
A. You will save off the cost of each test, plus all of the collateral costs. You will almost certainly save at least one hour of each driver’s time (likely longer, as collection sites can be very busy), along with fuel savings to and from the site. It is estimated that the average company will recoup the training cost in savings from just TWO COLLECTIONS!!
Q. It seems like this would be too much work for my staff. How would this work for me?
A. Our one-day training course will teach you all you need to know. Collections are actually very straight- forward and simple, once you have learned the rules and regulations. Our experienced instructors will make sure that your Certified Collection Personnel are fully trained and comfortable with the procedures.
Q. What does the “Initial Proficiency Demonstration” entail, and will it be hard to pass?
A. The Initial Proficiency Demonstration is done as part of the training, and requires 5 consecutive error-free mock-collections. Each trainee will be provided with ample training and practice sessions to ensure easy completion of the Initial Proficiency Demonstration. This is simply done to prove that the trainee is capable of collecting error-free specimens.
Q. What will I have to do after the training to obtain certification for my collection personnel?
A. Nothing! Each person who attends the training and completes the Initial Proficiency Demonstration satisfactorily will receive a certificate authorizing them to begin collecting samples immediately.
