How long have you been in the HR compliance training
KnowledgeStart has been developing HR compliance
e-learning courses for approximately 8 years.
How long are the courses?
The total estimated time to complete the e-learning
course is approximately 1 hour. However,
there are interactives and exercises that might take a
person more or less time. And some people will try to
complete the course in one session, where others will
take the course in their spare time.
Is there an instructor available to help me?
For ease of use, a narrator will guide you through the
course. If at anytime you need help, there is an "email
the administrator link" found at the top of the page
where you can get help, or you can call our technical
support teams at anytime from 9am-5pm EST for phone
Will I receive some sort of manual?
There are no printed manuals available as part of this
e-learning course. However, you can refer to the "What
you've learned" section after completing the course to
print out or email key learning points and information
for further review. Additionally, a webinar may be
provided to instruct the administrator(s) on effective
use of the LMS.
Are there any tests in the course?
Yes, there is a final post assessment test to review key
concepts and skill sets that you should have learned
throughout the course. Keep in mind, this course was not
designed to trap participants in "right or wrong"
answers, rather to reflect the user’s commitment to
learning. Courses may be customized to provide a
“Pass/Fail” functionality if this is desired by the
Is there bookmarking functionality?
Yes, there is bookmarking functionality throughout the
entire course. This means that if you don't have enough
time to complete the training in one sitting, you can
log-out of the course (or close your browser) and our
platform will automatically bookmark the page you've
last completed. This way, when you return to the
platform, you can pick up where you left off.
Are there certificates issued upon completion?
Yes, when you complete the "Conclusion" portion of our
course, a "Thank You" screen will appear indicating that
you have fulfilled your requirement of this training
course. Your completion of the courseware will also be
recorded within the database. You will then have the
ability to print out a customized certificate of
completion reflecting your name and date of completion.
Can I retake the course after I've completed?
Yes, you will continue to have access to this e-learning
course until your subscription period expires. Please
note that you will be able to access the examination
again once you have passed, however, you may have to
"rewind" the course by using your back arrow or browsing

What subject areas are covered?

the following topics: Diversity & Inclusion,
Micro-Messages, Disabilities, World Cultures, LGBT Workforce, Harassment Prevention, Understanding Business Ethics,
Generations, and Substance Abuse
Is your courseware and e-learning
content updated and current?
Yes, we update our courses regularly to ensure that the
facts and content represent the latest statistical
research. Each year we release an updated version of our
courses. Current clients may request customizations or
alterations to meet new standards or legal requirements.
Do you have the ability to integrate our company
policies into your courseware?
In each of the KnowledgeStart courses, there is a
section reserved for “My Employer’s Policies” in which
your organization’s specific policies and procedures may
be directly incorporated in a text version. The user is
forced to read the policies in order to advance to the
next module. The policies may also be downloaded or sent
to the user’s email.
INSTRUCTIONAL DESIGN OF COURSE
What training methodology do you employ?
KnowledgeStart courses use narrator guided presentations
of key facts and information, complemented by case
studies, “What Would You Do?” scenarios, and dramatized
vignettes to keep the learner engaged and active
throughout the entire e-learning course.
Are the courses interactive?
KnowledgeStart courses are very interactive. We have
incorporated interactive learning activities, “What
Would You Do?” scenarios, and Post-Assessment Tests to
keep the learner engaged.
How do you know your training is effective?
After training 3,000,000 employees world-wide over the
last 7 years, our clients have noticed sizable increases
in talent retention and collaboration as well as
decreases in employee turn-over and legal issues arising
from employee behavioral issues. We also have the
ability to create pre and post assessment tests to
capture knowledge growth of an employee from their start
to completion of each product. This factor has made our
e-learning products a true tangible return on investment
for our clients.
