At ECSI, we recognize that many Education Centers and instructors may be exploring distance learning training models for the first time.

With ECSI online courses, students can complete the knowledge-based component of the course in the safety of their home and complete the hands-on skills evaluations with an instructor to obtain an ECSI digital course completion card at a later date.

To complete the knowledge-based component of an ECSI online course, a student may redeem an access code by clicking the Account Log In link at https://www.ecsinstitute.org/. An access code may be purchased directly by the student* on our website or supplied by the instructor.

Explore both options below:

If the student purchases an online course access code directly:

  1. Make sure to keep the invoice number from Jones and Bartlett Learning, as it will be needed during the hands-on skills evaluation portion of the course. 
  2. The student completes the online portion of the course. Upon completion, they will receive a course completion acknowledgement form for the online portion only:
    ECSI Dummy CertificateNote: ECSI is extending course completion card validity for a period of 120 days for those who are unable to access training during the COVID-19 pandemic. We will continue to monitor the situation and may make further changes in the future. Please visit our FAQ page for more information.

  3. The student brings a copy of the course completion acknowledgement form to the ECSI Skills Testing Center*, along with their invoice number from Jones and Bartlett Learning for an on-site skills check.

    • The student demonstrate the ability to perform the required skills for an ECSI instructor at an ECSI Skills Testing Center.

    • Once the student has successfully completed the required skills, then the instructor redeems the student's invoice and issues a digital course completion card (in the same manner as an instructor would do for an in-person course). 

If an ECSI instructor supplies the online course access code to the student:

  1. Once the unique online course access code has been purchased, the ECSI instructor can then email it to the student.**

  2. The student completes the online portion of the course. Upon completion, the student will receive a course completion acknowledgement form for the online portion of the course only:

*Prior to purchasing an online course, ECSI encourages students to locate an ECSI Skills Testing Center nearby where they can perform an on-site skills check and also to inquire about pricing and availability.

**As an ECSI instructor, you qualify to offer on-site skills testing for students who have taken an ECSI online course. On-site skills testing is a great way to garner new business for your Education Center and promote safety training in your community. ECSI does not mandate what our Education Centers charge for the on-site skills testing. So, whether you choose to simply cover the cost of the skills testing and course completion card, or charge a nominal fee, the choice is yours.
