IMPORTANT NOTICE ABOUT CLASSROOM TRAINING
All classroom training has been suspended until further notice. Please check back here for updates over the coming weeks.
For staff requiring the four hour Recipient Rights class, please register for the online course titled “Recipient Rights Initial Overview”. This online course will suffice for working independently with consumers until the classroom training resumes. Staff will still be required to complete the classroom training once face-to-face training resumes.
For staff requiring a MANDT Recertification, we are currently working on an alternative that will allow most of the recertification to occur online with a delayed skills demonstration classroom portion of the course. This option will be compliant with MANDT recertification requirements.
For staff requiring the Medication & Health Skills Demonstration, the period of time to complete the prerequisite online courses will be extended until the skills demonstration class is offered again.
If you are having issues getting to this online platform, please clear your browsing history. We have had numerous issues starting Friday, May 10 and continuing. See the attached document below on instructions to clear your browsing history based on the type of browser you are using (Internet Explorer, Chrome, Edge).
Lakeshore LMS (Learning Management System)
CMHOC uses Lakeshore LMS as its platform for classroom and online courses. This learning platform is a self-registration system in which each student registers for both classroom and online courses they are required to complete.
Lakeshore LMS is being used by the five partner agencies in the Lakeshore Regional Entity (LRE) affiliation: CMH of Ottawa County, Allegan County CMH, HealthWest (Muskegon), network180 (Kent), and West Michigan CMH (Mason, Lake, and Oceana Counties).
Accessing Lakeshore LMS
To set up your user profile and register for courses, go to the Lakeshore LMS homepage. Information on how to use Lakeshore LMS and how to start the registration process for students is located on the homepage. Look for the “How to…” video and the Quick Guide on that page.
Students can also access a Student Guide developed by CMHOC for using Lakeshore LMS. This document will give you a step by step guide on setting up your profile and enrolling in courses.
