How do courses get assigned?
You have two options. The standard option is where the team admin will receive all courses including business courses and the technicians will receive all other courses. Option 2 is by request and that is a team admin managed account where the team admin is the only person who receives the courses and they choose which courses to assign to their staff. If you would like your account set up as a team admin managed account simply email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get you converted and trained.
Can I assign my users only the courses I want them to have?
If you would like your account set up as a team admin managed account so you have full control of what your users receive then simply email email@example.com and we will get you converted and trained.
Who teaches your courses?
We currently have courses taught by over 15 industry leaders including Mark Stoner, Jim Brewer, Alan Rush, Chuck Roydhouse, Taylor Hill, Cam Arnold, Russ Dimmit to name a few. For a complete list of instructors check out our courses page.
Are there any live courses?
Yes, we do a live webinar every single month. Check out our calendar page to see when the next event is scheduled. This is your chance to interact directly with members of the SureFire team to get live assistance or provide feedback on the platform.
Do your courses have CSIA or NFI CEUs?
Yes! The majority of our courses have both CSIA and NFI CEUs. You can check the courses page to see how many of what category of CEUs each course has. To confirm if a course has CEUs available for it you can check the black description bar at the top of each course.
How do my CEUs get applied?
If you are currently CSIA certified be sure you have your badge number loaded into your profile. If you are actively certified and have your badge number in your profile then your CSIA CEUs will automatically be applied on a weekly basis. In order to have your NFI CEUs applied you will need to email your certificate that is received at course completion to the email address on the certificate. If you are in a time crunch and can’t wait a week you can always email the CSIA your certificate directly to the email on the certificate.
I can’t log in or have forgotten my password, what do I do?
Typically your login name is your email address and your password is created by you the first time you login. If you can’t login then click the “I’ve forgotten my username/password’ link on the login page. You will be able to enter your email address and get an automated password reset link. If you still have issues you can always email firstname.lastname@example.org for direct assistance.
I completed the course, but it’s not showing as complete.
If you have completed the course, but it’s not showing complete please email email@example.com so we can investigate. We can confirm the time spent on that module and manually complete for you if necessary.
