Great!

So what would you recommend your employee to do if they happened to do the following?
  • auto accident
  • hitting some one with rock
  • breaking a window
  • injuring them selves
  • breaking a water or gas line

I think it would be beneficial if you each time you signed onto the class, a message would tell you which session you last left off on. I find myself going through several of them before I get to the next unfinished one.

Thank you, that is another great idea to work on.

Great ideas so far!
