Training & Certifications

We are constantly updating our knowledge and processes in step with regulation changes.

To ensure consistency with various day to day procedures throughout all of our locations, On Side has developed and implemented an eLearning portal known as our On Side University (OSU), which delivers highly interactive training.

The training modules within OSU consist of incremental levels for completion and require a passing grade of 85% in order to progress. The first level of training for a department begins with instruction on administration or critical information required for the success of a specific job at the onset. Progressing, the levels expand from basic processes to advanced technical training. All module completion, timeliness and results are communicated to the appropriate supervisor, allowing for proper assessment at the time of performance reviews.

If the skill set required for an employee involves technical expertise beyond what OSU can provide, the employees may acquire advanced Certification. On Side may send employees out for, or host, various occupational related training classes associated with the specific skill set required. Many of those who make up our workforce carry proper certification, ensuring proper restoration, the first time.
