How this Utica National policyholder benefits from free SafeSchools online training

"We had previously looked at online training options for our personnel and found that it was too costly for us... and were delighted to find SafeSchools was offered as part of our policy. We find the SafeSchools training program easy to use and a more efficient way to meet our training needs... SafeSchools training as a tool in our human resources toolbox is a real asset."
