What is a Smart Program Guide (SPG)?
The Smart Program Guide (SPG) is the ideal mode to completing the Virtual training. However, for this option you must have an internet connection along with individual user account for Quick Serve Online (QSOL). To obtain a SPG, log on to quickserve.cummins.com. QSOL also provides a link to Service Training on the left hand side of the screen. You may then select the qualification program that “you” wish to complete. The Smart Program guide looks at the current training requirements and subtracts any Virtual College training that has previously been completed.
The advantage of having the SPG is that it will be less time consuming, meaning the student will not have to repeat what they have done previously, and will allow you to focus only on topics which apply to them.
NOTE: The user will need to have a Service Training ID number to complete the training on the Virtual College Library. Without the Service Training ID the student will not be able to save any of their progress and therefore not gain credit for their work.
When do courses start and finish?
Most courses start at 09:00 hours (On first day of course arrive at 08:45 hours for registration) and finish at 16:30 hours. However, start and finish times may vary for Qualification courses.
