CMHOC is uses Lakeshore LMS as its platform for classroom and online courses. This learning platform is a self-registration system in which each student registers for both classroom and online courses they wish to complete.
Lakeshore LMS (Learning Management System)
Lakeshore LMS is being used by the five partner agencies in the Lakeshore Regional affiliation: CMH of Ottawa County, Allegan County CMH, HealthWest (Muskegon), network180 (Kent), and West Michigan CMH (Mason, Lake, and Oceana Counties).
In January, 2016, our training curriculum changed substantially as the CMH agencies in our region began using a common curriculum that is accepted across the region. Several classroom courses were discontinued and there was the addition of many new online courses. View the Staff Training Requirements for the standards that became effective for our region in 2016.
For agency employees who need to know how the current curriculum compares to the curriculum in place prior to 2016, a Curriculum Crosswalk document is available. This document may be a helpful tool in determining if employees who were trained prior to 2016 can consider themselves fully trained according to the updated curriculum.
Accessing Lakeshore LMSTo set up your user profile and register for courses, go to the Lakeshore LMS homepage. Information on how to use Lakeshore LMS and how to start the registration process for students is located on the homepage. Look for the “How to…” video and the Quick Guide on that page.
Students can also access a Student Guide developed by CMHOC for using Lakeshore LMS. This document will give you a step by step guide on setting up your profile and enrolling in courses.
