  • Upon watching each video, use the recommended resources to practice each lesson in the THISIS training environment.
    • Users will need to have a "test case" (PDF) to practice the data entry.
  • Review the summary of each video to ensure understanding of the main points.
  • Take the assessment and print a completion certificate. Retain the copies as per local or regional program direction.
