March Training Webinar – Member Edition

Are you or your administration staff looking to gear up for the coming digging season?

Ontario One Call provides excavator and member training free of charge via an annual webinar series in March using GotoWebinar.

This training is a webinar so no in person trainer will attend your office.  You can connect to any  of Ontario One Call’s seminars or discussions by clicking any of the links below.  Please RSVP to any of the courses you wish and feel free to forward this note to others you feel should attend.  These courses are open to anyone.  The course material is repeated each day.

There is a special Member Training course regarding upcoming changes to the Ontario One Call system.  It is highly encouraged that you attend this course.

You will receive a reminder email before the webinar starts.  All times indicated are in Eastern Standard Time.

Some courses may have draws or awards for participation.

This year, we have designed courses for many situations:

A web Refresher, for those looking to revitalize their skills using our web portal interface;

Tips and Tricks for a Better Web Ticket covering some of the best practices we’ve daylighted in the past few months using the new online form;

A course on relocates titled “Don’t Get delayed – Relocates and You” where we will discuss how the relocate option works and how best to use it;

A review of the upcoming changes  covering how Ontario One Call selects which member it will notify – a fundamental change to the system;

and Ontario One Call – A to Z, which is designed for your new employees as sort of an orienteering course in locates.
