Welcome.

This is the home page for Illinois Required Training Solutions’ 2022-23 Chicago Bystander Intervention training only course, a standalone bystander intervention training with the specialized content required for workers within the City of Chicago.  

This standalone offering is especially suited to Chicago NON-supervisors who have already taken an Illinois SB75-compliant sexual harassment prevention training course in 2022. 

This course meets and exceeds the bystander intervention training requirement of Chicago Ordinance 2022-665.  This Ordinance changed the Chicago city municipal code to require that every worker in Chicago receive one hour of bystander intervention training, in addition to their required sexual harassment prevention training, every year.

This version of our course is delivered in the “4U / Train Yourself” registration format, allowing the buyer to immediately self-train with their user ID / login created at checkout. It is like the “For Your Staff/For Your Team” course in all respects except the form of registration.

This course requires one hour (60 minutes) of time spent with the course content.  It does NOT have to be completed all in one sitting.  Some people take longer depending on their preferred learning speed.  The course has no maximum time limit to complete.

How do I start taking the course?

If your employer sent you a link for a pre-paid training course, click on that link to start training.

If you've previously trained with us AND your device is currently logged in to our system AND you received a link for a NEW prepaid training course or bundle, click on that link TWICE to attach the new course or bundle to your existing student account.

The first click will log you out. Don't log back in at this point, but instead click again as instructed in the pop-up message.

The second click will give you a redemption screen where you redeem the new prepaid course or bundle by logging back in as a Returning User.

If you don't see the new course(s) listed under your My Courses tab, you may not have clicked the link twice as instructed above.  Just do so again, following the instructions on screen.

Once you have redeemed a prepaid link for a course bundle, ALL the bundled courses will appear in your My Courses tab.  Clicking on the link after redemption will report that the link has already been used. Simply log in to the system and start or resume training from the My Courses tab. 

If you’ve already purchased the Chicago Bundle for yourself, go to your My Courses tab of My Dashboard and click Launch Course to start training with either course.
