NVTI will resume offering E-learning courses in the Summer of 2017
The Investigators Online course is designed as a prerequisite to USERRA Investigator Training and is for VETS staff who process USERRA investigations. This course is split into three areas. Potential liability, Communication and Case File Evidence Evaluation.
The goals is to provide information on liability of investigators when conducting USERRA investigations; using written communication and investigative writing to produce documentation relevant to USERRA case processing; and sharpening critical thinking skills and knowledge as it relates to the Federal Rules of Evidence.
To support implementation of the refocusing efforts of the JVSG program, NVTI has created a six-module eLearning tool for American Job Center (AJC) frontline staff called "Preparing Veterans for Meaningful Careers" (PVMC). The site provides tools and resources to educate and inform AJC staff on how to best serve and assist veterans.
Topics areas and descriptions are:
Meet Your Veteran: Learn which AJC staff serves veterans, the different ranks and branches of service, and your role in helping veterans. Upon completion, you?ll have a better understanding of the environment veterans come from which will enable you to assist them in their job search.
Transferable Skills and Credentialing: Military service members come out of the military with a wide range of valuable skills. You will learn to translate those skills for a private sector job search.
Resumes: Transitioning service members and veterans often experience difficulty with translating their skills and experience when writing a resume. This module will help you assist them in writing a more effective resume which will get results?more interviews.
Interview: Employment interviews can make or break any candidates' opportunity to get the job. Veterans' experience with job interviews may be limited or non-existent. This module will help you learn ways to best build and improve veterans' interviewing skills and employment chances.
Disability Awareness & Resources: Some veterans will leave military service with disabilities. Learn how to assist and guide veterans with disabilities through their individual circumstances as they make career decisions.
Federal Laws & Programs: In this module we will discuss four specific federal programs or laws which may affect you and the veterans you serve. These programs will help you serve veterans and will allow them to access benefits they've earned.
The purpose of this e-learning course is to introduce the law and rules of The Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA).This course is for U.S. Department of Labor's Veterans' Employment and Training Services (VETS) employees, as well as Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) Ombudsmen, guard and reservists and employers who would like to have a better understanding of USERRA.
