About Us

RISK PREVENTION ONLINE provides research-informed educational courses and programs utilizing the best practices available.

Trainees are required to participate and must stay engaged in the program to successfully receive a certificate of completion.

We create an environment for learning using the latest technology and top training methods. Research has shown, to increase the effectiveness of training, we must create an environment containing these components:

Similes and Analogies - Our programs help participants identify differences and similarities in themselves and others. We do this with stories, examples, and graphs. The use of similes and analogies are effective in helping students learn.

Interactive Essays, Notes, and Summarizing (IENS) - The participant must engage by writing and finding the main points for each lesson. Our training does this by having the participants think for themselves and find the main points to each lesson and then summarize what they have learned. At the end of the lesson, we require they type out, in their own words, a short essay or response using the knowledge they learned. IENS ensures the main points of the lesson were grasped. Here is an example of an IENS question: “Explain why taking responsibility for your actions shows maturity. Give two examples of taking responsibility.”

Reinforcing Effort (Mind Set) – We show in our lessons, convincingly, that a person’s effort will determine their success. We encourage that they are worth the effort. By doing what is right and good for them, they will have a much better life.

Homework and Practice – Participants will recall the work they have just done. We do this by asking them to choose the right response after viewing scenarios and questions.

Goals and Feedback - Goals will be set at the beginning with feedback given at the end of each lesson. We encourage the participant to find a goal in their life and ask them to determine what they value.

Develop a Plan - We explain how a plan can help with communication and reduce stress.

Attitudes and Values - We provide information on attitudes and values.

The world leading Learning Management System by National Online Training is an online training system that tracks trainees’ educational recommendations to ensure compliance. This is the system that powers all of our courses.

We employ instructional design techniques optimized for risk prevention, enabling us to educate in a way that reduces risk and encourages compliant behavior.

Risk Prevention Online’s training courses are driven by practical examples and interactive scenarios to ensure users truly understand and recognize the issues that are most important. Our training also encourages participants to learn important values and act in support of them.

We work with SAPs who evaluate employees who have violated a DOT drug and alcohol program regulation. Based on their recommendations concerning education, we are here to help. SAPs work to protect the public interest in safety by professionally recommending our education.

As an SAP, you represent the major decision point (and in some cases the only decision point) an employer may have in choosing whether or not to place an employee behind the steering wheel of a school bus, in the cockpit of a plane, at the helm of an oil tanker, at the throttle of a train, in the engineer compartment of a subway car, or at the emergency control valves of a natural gas pipeline. The responsibility of an SAP to the public is enormous!
