Oxygen System Safety Facilitator Badge

Isn't this the same as your eTraining course for Single Users?

While the material is similar, the presentation is a key factor in making this course distinct.
You make the difference when you act as Facilitator to your group in your company, and WHA prepares you for this role. Through direct consultation with WHA engineers, the group Facilitator has the ability to pause between modules to address company-specific applications of the material to on-site systems, essentially making the course customizable. Questions that participants have can be answered immediately by the Facilitator, who acts as the company liaison. Facilitators receive .7 CEUs or 7 PDHs, as well as a Facilitator certificate.
