Going Green at NACHC

NACHC trainings are going greenIn an effort to reduce waste and save trees,  NACHC is implementing a going green initiative that will slowly phase in technology for accessing training materials. The first phase of the green initiative was implemented over the summer at NACHC training courses. Hard copies of presentation slides were not provided on-site at NACHC trainings and instead attendees were encouraged to download then from the MyNACHC Learning Center.

With the approaching Financial, Operations, Management/ IT (FOM/IT) Conference in November we thought we’d answer some questions about the initiative:

How to access course materials on MyNACHC (3)Below are some Q&As to help our training participants with this transition.

Q: How do I access my course materials?

A: You will be sent a “Welcome” email with instructions on how to access the course materials in MyNACHC approximately one week to 10 days prior to the course.

Course worksheets, toolkits, case studies, and all other materials used on-site during the trainings will still be provided in hard copy.

Q: What do I need to bring to the course with me?

A: Any worksheets, toolkits, or case studies that will be used during the course will be provided on-site in a course binder.  If you would like copies of the presentations (PowerPoint slides), or any of the supplemental reference materials you must download them from MyNACHC yourself.  You can then either bring them electronically on your personal devices, or have them printed for you to bring with you.

Q: Do I have to print the course materials?

A: This is a personal decision.  If you would like to have the PowerPoint slides in front of you for note taking, then we advise that you download and/or print them to bring with you, otherwise there is no requirement that you need to print them.  You will have access to the materials electronically for at least one year after the course.

Q: How long will I have access to the course materials electronically in MyNACHC?

A: Participants will be able to access all course materials for up to one year after taking the course.
