This course provides the training required for FAC-COR Level I certification.

Note: This course includes a Post-Test. Participants must attain a score of 80% or higher on the Post-Test to receive a coursecompletion certificate.

This course is part of the Certificate of Accomplishment in Personal Property Management.

Who should attend?

This course is designed for newly assigned or about to be assigned Level I CORs who desire more in-depth training than is provided in COR Essentials (ACQI7028D).
