Pros: There are lots of courses to choose from and integrates perfectly with School Bus Safety Company so we can use for most of our annual training.

Cons: There isn't an easy way to train substitutes and we have had trouble with bus drivers and other staff who do not have regular access to a computer completing additional training assigned throughout the year.

Pros: What I like most about this software is the ease of assigning training to groups and being able to register or remove someone from the training.

Cons: I wish that a person could be listed in multiple groups which would make it easier to assign specific people to a specific course. An example would be having a teacher listed as a teacher and as a coach, so that when I need to assign the course on concussions to all my coaches, I don't have to go and do it individually, I could just click on coaches.

Overall: I like the program a lot because its easy to use as an administrator and also as a person who needs to do the training.

Pros: The ease of everything! I've worked with other On-line training programs and this is the best I've encountered. It is very easy to run reports and enter new hires.

Cons: The training library is rich with topics, however there needs to be something regarding Medicaid.

Overall: Exceptional! Customer service is hands down the best I've worked with!

Pros: Ease of assigning courses, ease of creating customized courses, ease of entering new staff members.

Cons: For customized courses and offline courses, lack of interface to note attendance/completion.

Relatively weak report customization - e.g. not able to do a report for district-wide compliance with NJ DOE requirement for 20 hours PD per staff member - need report listing individual, courses taken including time spent.

Overall: Overall, cost-effective means to deliver training to staff members.

Pros: I love the ease of use in setting up employees with their required trainings. The ability to implement customized trainings and utilizing quizes for those trainings as well makes SafeSchools a tremendous help in our Opening Day procedures.

Cons: There is really nothing about this software that I disliked.

Overall: The compliance with numerous requirements and the ability to protect our district by requiring employees to sign off on the policies and trainings that have proven complex in the past has protected us from issues with personnel.

Pros: Ease of set up is a big plus. Adding new staff is just a few clicks. This is very easy for employees to use. Reporting and tracking features make it very simple for us to follow up with those who have not completed mandatory trainings.

Cons: I found editing of existing training plans to be a bit cumbersome.

Overall: We are managing our safety training and compliance verification using this great system.

Pros: Our staff can access the training units easily and get their training done at their own pace.

Its nice you can send out group trainings and Safeschools sends out reminders.

Cons: The website changes more often than I like. This is a busy office so I don't really want to retrain myself on where to find things.

Overall: The courses are thorough and meet many licensure and safety requirements.

Pros: Very Easy. Our entire business office and assistant to the Head of School have admin access. We all picked it up easily. So easy to run reports, etc.

Cons: I haven't found anything I dislike about the software and I'm equally pleased by all of the features

Overall: This has helped our school! We are saving money by not having to have live speakers/trainers in to certify us each year on some items.

Pros: Safety and Compliance training is a must-do, but finding the time to schedule multiple sessions and finding the time to complete it can be a problem. I can work these trainings into my schedule and know that I'm getting the same content as my colleagues.

Cons: No problems for me. I know some get frustrated when the training stops to ask questions, but that enhances accountability from my standpoint.

Overall: We can verify which employees have completed required trainings and address individuals rather than send out blanket reminders.

Pros: It is so easy to assign videos and preview new content. It is also simple to add new users. I am also able to troubleshoot when situations arise.

Cons: I think it is a bit difficult to edit training programs and figure out which reports give you which information.

Overall: We assign a 6 hour block of videos to all our staff on compliance and they can earn a comp day over the summer from home, sitting by the pool, travelling or relaxing.
