Course and Requirements
NOTICE: The Board of Directors has voted on and passed a new requirement that every NMEDA-QAP™ Dealer member have a Training Certificate on file at each location indicating who has taken and successfully passed NMEDA’s QAP 1-2-3 online courses. The Board also directed that RADCO auditors begin auditing for compliance beginning 7/1/13.
Now that QAP participation is required for all NMEDA Dealer members it just makes good business sense to have people trained in QAP and the NMEDA Guidelines at every location. Having proven QAP experts on staff makes it possible for you to maintain an advantage on your competition, reduce potential liabilities, and provide “best in class” service to your customers. The participant will gain an introduction to best practice safety guidelines and operational procedures for the automotive mobility equipment industry as regulated by the NMEDA Quality Assurance Program. This three part course will be useful for Driver Rehabilitation Specialists who collaborate and work closely with NMEDA QAP Dealers.
NMEDA provides QAP 1-2-3 courses free to all Dealer members upon request. An official 2-year hard copy certificate is available for QAP-3 Guidelines Training as a stand-alone unit or for QAP 1-2-3 as a bundled course. Please specify if you want to take the courses for credit (certificate) or audit only. This course is accredited by ADED for 3 contact hours and has a 2-year certificate awarded upon successful completion & 75% or higher score.
Here’s a summary of each section below:
|Course & Description||Objectives|
