Staff Training paragraph A

The VA Dept. of Orientation course, which used to be required for subsidy centers only, is now going to be required for all centers. Staff must complete the training within 90 days of hire. This is an on-line,10 hour training course which is very challenging, has high expectations for written answers, and does not allow much wiggle room for error. Some staff does not have the technology to complete at home, and we are short staffed so they can't do while here at work. This being a requirement will be a hardship for the school, and an unnecessary stressor for the staff.
