SSTS administrator training

Every local unit of government that administers an SSTS program must have at least one staff person trained in the administrative requirements of the program. The training consists of 13 videos (each is less than 15 minutes) and a brief quiz for each.

Before starting the videos, print out the quiz and the companion documents.

Quizzes – Answer the quiz questions as you view each video (it is an open-computer test!). Record the date you watched the video and add your initials to the top right of each completed quiz and keep them on file.

Companion documents – Companion documents will help you follow along with the training and may provide additional information.

If you have questions during the videos, please take notes and contact Aaron Jensen (651-757-2544) for assistance.
