ICOR Critical Environments 2018 Course Schedule

Aligning Mission-Critical Education and Certification to the Workplace
2018 Course Schedule

Critical Environments Education & Credentialing Program

Instructor Led & eLearning

The ICOR Difference
  • Courses and certifications are tied to a job analysis so that you can verify to management and hiring organizations exactly which job you are credentialed to do.
  • Choose the course that best meets your needs - no need to 'start at the beginner level.
  • Each course and certification exam is tied to 8 competency areas. The exams are comprised of a combination of multiple choice and practical questions. This provides the opportunity to demonstrate problem solving using a case study or scenario problem commonly seen in a critical environment.
  • Not interested in taking a full course? You can take an elearning course specific to each competency area. Earn a certificate of achievement for individual competency area.
  • The certification exam fee is included in the course fee if you take the entire course. You can also challenge the exam without taking the course.
  • When challenging the exam you must pass each of the 8 competency areas with a minimum score of 75%.
  • If you miss the minimum score in one or more of the competency areas you can retake just the competency areas missed. One exam retake is included in the course fee if you take the course.
Instructor led courses available in English, Spanish and Portuguese.
