NSS-CDS Training Program


New student survey

March 3, 2020: It’s a simple fact: The more data you have and the more accurate that data is, the greater the likelihood you will make good decisions.

The NSS-CDS Training Program has accomplished many things in the past few months. Among them, we are building a better statistical picture of who our students and instructors are, and what they possess in terms of training and experience. To do this, we have a new tool in our arsenal.

Starting now, students certified through the NSS-CDS will be invited to fill out a comprehensive online survey. The survey will allow us to do three things:

  • Collect data not only on students’ prior training and experience but on what they did and where they went during their most recent NSS-CDS course.
  • Allow us to delete the student-background questions from the online registration form. This information will now come from the students themselves. It will further streamline the registration process.
  • Help us identify potential quality assurance issues. This is something we’ve not been able to do before.

The link below will allow you to look the survey over and take it yourself. If you do, we will send you a copy of the results, so you can see how they will look to us.
