As of 2014, the SDI-TDI-ERDI Training Department has been conducting LIVE webinars covering the 1st and 2nd quarter training updates. These updates were offered at various dates/times to fit the scheduling needs of our members on a global scale. The attendance of the training updates was a huge success, and we look forward to conducting more of them in the future.
We put together the quarterly training updates to list the exact changes made to the Standards and Procedures (S&P’s). After you download the training updates, you can insert the standards changes to the appropriate S&P’s manual.
If you missed the 1st or 2nd quarter training update by webinar, please make sure to download the updates at your convenience through the members section on the website, https://www.tdisdi.com. Or Click here to watch a recorded version of the webinar.

See the red circled section; 14.2 notes the standards you are looking at were posted in 2014, in the second quarter. If the Standards and Procedures you are currently using list a number other than 14 – please update your teaching materials. They are available to you online – for free!
Better yet, prior to conducting any training, you can download or print off the most up-to-date S&P’s for that particular course.
Using the members section online – There are so many tools available to you – for free – in the Member’s Section on the website. We understand times are changing and technology seems to quickly speed ahead without giving us a chance to catch up…

We are a TRAINING organization and we will be happy to teach you how to effectively use the tools available to you on the website.
The Training Department actively conducts GoToMeeting or Skype sessions to demonstrate, in real time, how to use the website. You will have the ability to see our screen live as we navigate through the site. If you are interested in this, please send an e-mail to Training@tdisdi.com noting you would like to participate in a “web-tour.” If we receive enough demand for this, we can establish weekly / monthly website training sessions.
