eFINDS Training Reminder Announcement
eFINDS training is available online
from NYSDOH Office of Health and  Emergency Preparedness 
Dear ACF Administrator,

ESAAL is working with the NYSDOH Office of Health and Emergency Preparedness (OHEP) under a grant (#3206-10) to help promote eFINDS trainings to ACFs.

This notice is to remind you of the ongoing web-based  eFINDS trainings available to you and your staff through the NYSDOH Commerce Training Institute (CTI).

The Department of Health strongly encourages operators to utilize the web-based eFINDS training and ensure that at least three facility staff persons are knowledgeable in the use of eFINDS.

The Learning Management System (LMS) course, called CTI-502 provides a solid foundation for registering and updating patient/resident location information during an incident or event, such as a storm, flood, non-natural incident or practice/exercise drill. The webinar takes about an hour to complete. 

Prerequisite: Participants should be assigned on HCS to either the eFINDS Data Reporter or the eFINDS Reporting Administrator prior to training, and know where your eFINDS supplies (wristbands, scanner and PDF log files) are located.

If you are interested in this training opportunity, sign up for an upcoming session. Here's how:

1) You need to have an account with the LMS. Click the link below to access the LMS
2) Either log-in or create a new account
3) Once logged in, find the Course Catalog and search for the course called CTI-502
4) When loaded, click on eFINDS version 3.0 and enroll in any of the class dates that  you wish to take.

Trainings are offered throughout the year.
The next scheduled CTI-502 classes are:

June 19, 2017   11:00 am - 12:00 pm

July 18, 2017  1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
