this is an open book exam, you may want to download a copy of the
Powerpoint presentation to your computer so you can easily review the
material as you take the online quiz. A clever way to do this is to
open two windows on your computer, one with the presentation and the
second one with the test. Read the test question and then review the
presentation for the answer. This may sound like cheating, but you'll
actually be learning the material, and that's the objective. At the end
of the test you'll be told whether you passed.
Once you have passed the test(s):
1) Download your 'Certificate(s) of Completion'
2) Save a copy for your personal records
3) Consult the latest Org Chart to identify the current Emergency Services Officer
Email a copy of your certificate(s) to the ES Officer so that
the he/she can keep the records up to date for inspections.
Alternately, print a copy and hand deliver or snail mail it to the
appropriate ES officer.
or more parts of CAPT 117 will be required for further ES ratings so
this is a good time to take the tests and print the certificates as you
did the CAPT 116.
