Online Training Assistance

Environmental Health & Life Safety is transitioning toward the use of a web-based training and management system. As you participate in online training this will provide a streamlined registration, course, and recordkeeping experience that will better position the University to thrive as a safe and responsible entity. Some of the pages that you will see when registering for training may seem unfamiliar, so we have prepared a walk-through for use of the training software. 

Course Selection

When you select a course from our website to take as web-based training, you will be taken to the login page for EHS-Assistant. You will log in with your cougarnet credentials. In some browsers, it may be required to click on the "Submit" button instead of pressing the "Enter" key.

  2. You can contact EHLS or utilize this page for assitance when logging into or navigating the web-based training software.
  3. You can log out of your Cougarnet account at any time. 

After logging into the web-based training application, you will be given a choice of training courses. Please select the one that you wish to complete.
