Basic Orientation Plus Refresher

The Basic Orientation Plus Refresher is the yearly course those persons who have already taken the full Basic Orientation Plus course will need to update their training. This course takes 102 minutes with an additional 50 question test of which 70% of questions must be answered correctly for a passing score. If an employee is unable to pass the refresher, Basic Orientation Plus must be retaken.

All of the work is done in the computer lab, so employees are able to take the course any day that TVTC is open during the week so long as they begin two hours before close of business (please consult the TVTC website front page for hours). The refresher is available up to one year past the expiration of Basic Orientation Plus.
