OSHA's New Rules on Arc Flash Protection (VOD)
Four Ways to Learn
COURSE FOR CREDIT
Earn CUSP points toward the recertification of the CUSP credential by taking a Course 4 Credit. Once you pass the final exam, your points will automatically be reported to the USOLN so that it’s applied to your CUSP maintenance efforts. There are currently more than 40 points available on iPi online.
VIDEO ON DEMAND
Choose from more than 100 hours of HD video featuring the utility safety industry’s leading minds giving insightful presentations. You also get a copy of the PowerPoint slides used during the presentation. Your subscription provides unlimited access and replays to the entire catalog of videos.
Webinars give subscribers the ability to attend a live, online educational webinar and interact with industry experts. Attendees earn CUSP points and get access to a video recording of the live presentation.
QUICK LEARNING TOPICS
Quick Learning (QL) topics give subscribers instant access to short 5-10 minute videos that feature interesting utility safety insights. These are perfect for on-the-go professionals who may not always have time to watch an hour-long video, but still want to constantly be learning. They’re also great items to share at tailgate meetings!
Who creates the content in iPi online?
Utility Business Media, the publisher of Incident Prevention Magazine and hosts of the iP Utility Safety Conference recruits leading safety minds in the utility industry to create and present our content. iPi then takes that content and creates learner-friendly formats for you to purchase.
How can I purchase iPi Online content?
There are two ways you can purchase content. One, you can buy any individual item in our catalog. Once purchase, you have unlimited access to that course until it is archived. (A course is only archived if the information in it becomes obsolete due to changes in rules, regulations or procedures).
Two, you can purchase an annual subscription plan that gives you unlimited access to all of the content in our catalog.
After I purchase an item, how much time do I have to watch it?
You have unlimited access to the course with no expiration date. The only exception to this is if we must archive an item due to the information delivered in it being outdated by the implementation of new industry rules and regulations. In other words, if the content in the course is no longer accurate or correct, we will remove it from our catalog.
