About On Q Safety
Convenient and affordable online safety courses to help you and your organization stay certified and stay safe.
DST’s courses are offered online through DST’s learning management system (LMS) or made available on client LMS platforms. Each course takes approximately 2.5 to 4 hours to complete. Individual clients are registered with a unique client code that is used by each driver to be trained. Clients can sign in through most computers, tablets, and smartphones to access the training that is provided through the cloud. Progress in the course is bookmarked for drivers can sign in at any time and return to where they left off in the training. Each driver’s performance and completion of the training is tracked on the LMS and the client administrator has access into the LMS to view each driver’s training performance and progress.
DST’s EVO course was developed to meet 3 hours of the NHTSA 1995 Module A classroom instruction requirement to meaningfully teach the subject matter using current online training technology. The online course immerses students in realistic training situations that depict actual EVOC maneuvers and test decision-making to train safe behaviors rather than simply test memory. The course focuses on Code 3 EVO driving to increase understanding of procedures to create safer drivers.
The International Association of Directors of Law Enforcement Standards and Training (IADLEST), under a NHTSA Grant, has certified On Q’s EVOC as meeting or exceeding NHTSA curriculum standards. Additionally, EVOC complies with Federal Law Enforcement Training Accreditation (FLETA) standards, International Association of Chiefs of Police, and several other emergency vehicle organizations.
