TargetSolutions is delighted to announce that we have updated and restyled 17 courses from our EDU catalog and added 2 new courses as well. These courses, for the first time, will feature a live presenter and are 100% video-based. The release of these 19 courses continues our effort to modernize the entire EDU catalog.

EDU Food Services
- Food Services Proper Lifting (EDU)

These courses touch on everything from basic skills for food service workers, strategies for preventing foodborne illnesses, kitchen accident prevention, and the legal responsibilities of the school around sanitation and food prep.

Why did we update these courses? There is growing concern regarding the safety of transporting students and staff and the injuries/fatalities that can result. To ensure the safety of all concerned, many factors must be considered, and thorough training is of the utmost importance.
Diversity and Violence in Educational Settings
- Workplace Diversity (EDU)
- Workplace Violence (EDU)
Why did we update these courses? Due to an ever-increasing population and rapid growth, diversity in schools has become commonplace, but it also presents some challenges. Proper awareness and tolerance are essential in creating a welcoming educational environment and avoid discrimination. Violence in schools has been an issue for decades and can disrupt the physical safety and psychological welfare of students. Preventing these issues has become increasingly important and educators need to understand how to handle threats and minimize violent situations.

Why did we update these courses? School safety has become a hot-button issue and the importance of protecting students and staff from harm has never been more prevalent. Issues surrounding supervision, the recognition of potential hazards, bullying and physical violence are a concern to everyone in an education environment and sufficient training on warning signs and mitigation strategies is essential.
- Sexual Harassment Awareness (EDU)
Why did we update this course? Sexual harassment is a serious problem and victims can suffer a variety of physical and emotional damage, such as anxiety and depression. Schools must be aware of the risk factors and be able to recognize warning signs from both students and staff. This course was updated with training to ensure awareness around sexual harassment in schools, since the best way to deal with sexual harassment is to prevent an incident from ever occurring.
- General Office Ergonomics (EDU)
Why did we update this course? Cumulative Trauma Disorders (CTDs) are conditions that cause injuries to your joints, muscles, nerves, tendons, or bones, as the result of repetitive motions and students are subject to CTDs as well due to sitting at desks every day. Just as in the workplace, proper ergonomic practices are vital to the prevention of these injuries.
