Training Courses

SORM’s training team provides health, safety, and risk management training to state agencies and their employees. We focus on prevention of work-related injuries and illnesses. This proactive approach is intended to make the workplace safer and reduce the costs incurred by state agencies as a result of work-related injuries. SORM training specialists work hard to have course offerings and training materials serve the diverse needs of the 185,000 employees the agency serves.


Train-the-Trainer

Some courses offered during the year are train-the-trainer courses. Our goal is to persuade and motivate you to deliver more effective training for your agency. The train-the-trainer courses will help you enliven your delivery by complementing your program with slide show presentations and helping you phrase messages to motivate listeners.


Agency Course Customization

Many of our classes can also be customized for your agency. Our training team will work with you to create specialized training that incorporates pictures of your facilities, agency policies and procedures, or whatever will work best in your agency to keep your workforce well-trained and working safely.

Basic First Aid and CPR Training

SORM does not offer Basic First Aid and CPR training. Because incidents requiring CPR are rarely associated with an employee’s work, providing CPR classes does not significantly reduce risks or costs to the State. For that reason, SORM does not offer these classes.

CPR training is available in most areas of the state through local organizations like the American Red Cross and by private contract vendors at a reasonable cost. The following links are suggestions of the types of organizations that offer this training:
