UPDATE: iFTI and LMCI took action to provide assistance to our affiliates. After reviewing the finances, programs and operational plans, the trustees voted unanimously to cover the costs of Third Party distance learning courses in our Learning Management system (LMS) through September 30, 2023.
What are Third Party Courses?
The iFTI LMS houses 1,500 courses and out of these, 160+ are third party. Third party courses are online lessons provided by educational partners such as Click Safety, Red Vector, and Vubiz.
How do I identify third party courses?
Third party course names are marked with an asterisk (*) at the end of the course name e.g. COR 1225 Communication and Leadership*. Check the LMS Alert to review the course list, fees, and bundle. There are single course offerings and a Vubiz bundle.
What is a bundle?
A bundle is access to a group of course enrollments with a flat fee. Vubiz offers 100+ courses for a fee of $0.75 per user. The bundled fee is valid for one year from the initial enrollment.
How do I enroll?
Third party course are closed for self-enrollment. To enroll in these classes, contact your District Council LMS Admin or Director of Training for approval.
In reference to the iFTI Newsletter dated January 29, 2020, please find the Price List for all online third party courses available in the iFTI LMS. Some important reminders:
- Invoice is per user – one fee – to access the bundled courses per year starting in January.
- Users can be assigned as many classes as desired with a flat fee per bundle – $0.75 (Vubiz Bundle) or single course offerings
- Invoice will be sent to the District Council Training Fund.
All District Council training funds will be billed directly for all third party course enrollments on a quarterly basis. Single course invoices will come from the K-Learning Group, 1701 Cabin Branch Drive, Cheverly, MD 20785 and will be due within 30 days of the invoice date.
Update as of 03/24/20 – The Red Vector bundle sunset last December 31, 2020. These courses have removed from the LMS. Our current educational bundle providers are ClickSafety and Vubiz.
