The NRCGA also accepts successful completion of the 811Pro online course as equivalent to in-person NRCGA training from companies with employees who work nights or outside of the Vegas Valley or Reno area and in-person training is not practical. The class can be found at 811pro.com.
Please complete the online course and watch all four “Stories From The Field” videos.
Once the class is completed, each student will be able to download a PDF certificate with their name and company name. Please rename the certificate in the following format:
Year/Month/Day Company Name Student Name
Example: 2022 02 01 Southwest Gas Chuck Yeager
When all of your employees who you plan to train have completed the course, email ALL the certificates to the education committee at one time. Please DO NOT email them one by one.
Your training will be posted on the NRCGA website when all certificates are received.
