Other Training Materials

  CERS Regulator Training Portal
If you would like to gain familiarity with using CERS, you can begin using the Business Training Portal and/or the Regulator Training Portal.  These training portals are fully functional copies of CERS. Existing CERS users can sign in to the training portals with their CERS1 sign in, and other users can create new accounts. Neither training portal contains any business or facility data, but users can create new businesses and facilities in the Business training portal, and regulator users (once approved by CERS Technical Support staff) can view and act upon these facilities and their submittals.
