This course is designed to comply with these regulations as part of an FAA-regulated employer’s overall Employee Assistance Program (EAP).Students benefit from self-paced online training that includes interactive videos, documents, and resources. A certificate of completion, which never expires, can be downloaded immediately after passing the online exam.
