logingreenAs part of a strategic partnership with the Canadian Police Knowledge Network (CPKN), the OPVTA’s new web-based portal was launched in January 2010. As a standard membership benefit, enrolment to the portal is FREE.  Delivering OPVTA programs through a decentralized, individualized portal provides members with enhanced flexibility and autonomy in the manner through which training is scheduled, delivered, and documented.  The portal currently offers over 50 recent OPVTA titles, and will include all future releases.  It features review questions, additional resources AND is fully trackable – training administrators can access viewership reports by member and by program.  It is available 24/7 from any internet connection, work or home.

Minimum technical requirements for our portal and an “equipment test”

The OPVTA is also committed to working with its members to derive maximum benefit from emerging technologies.  While OPVTA videos are distributed in DVD format, members can also receive programs in a compressed video file format (.wmv or QuickTime mp4) at no extra charge.  This provision helps facilitate online delivery via local file servers or intranet.
