Change in Online Course Delivery

GPSTC has relocated our extremely popular independent online course offerings from a Blackboard hosted server to an internal server operated solely by the Training Center.

The new delivery system will result in benefits for students including elimination of the five minute delay in course availability after registration, immediate feedback on test scoring, instantaneous appearance of completed courses on transcripts, and the ability to download and print a certificate after successful completion of the course.

GPSTC staff will continue to upload course credit to the POST system after the 5th day of the month following course completion.

The on-screen appearance is slightly different from what students have grown accustomed to; however other than losing the Blackboard branding and portal links, the transition has been seamless with no disruption in service and students should not notice any major changes in navigation requirements or system functionality. If anything, the new system should prove to be simpler and more user-friendly.

GPSTC management believes this change will result in even greater positive impact on the public safety community, and we hope that you take advantage of the many online training opportunities that GPSTC offers.
