GCS will be open February 1-December 31.

All GCS units are self-guided so that you can complete them anytime, anywhere, and at your own pace. You may complete as many hours of training as you wish to achieve. You must view the content, complete all activities, and score 80% or above on the quiz to get one hour of credit for that unit.

To gain access to the GCS units, you must complete the GCS Introduction course

Available topics are listed below; you can scroll down on the taskbar to view them. Click the unit title you want to complete below, then click on the red 'Enroll me' button on the following webpage.

You must complete the GCS Introduction Unit before beginning Lessons 1-47.
