COVID-19 Screening

Before entering the Training Center, you must answer the brief quiz below.

Per our COVID-19 training plan, you must take this brief screening test within 24 hours before entering our building. Please note: this screening is NOT a COVID-19 test & DOES NOT determine whether or not you are infected with or have been exposed to COVID-19.

If you hesitate to answer any of these questions in a positive manner, please call us at (218) 733-9443 to reschedule your training. We will make every effort to work with you to keep all trainees safe and current on their training. Thank you.

If you pass this screening, you will see a green checkmark. Show us the green checkmark on your phone when entering the building to proceed to your temperature check. You will also receive an email with a copy of the green checkmark. You can also print or show us an electronic copy of that document to proceed.

If necessary, paper copies of this screening are available on request.
