Alexandria Technical and Community College Online Training

As of May 15, 2020, all training modules housed on the Alexandria Technical and Community College (ATCC) website were moved under a secured, non-searchable URL.

This URL is still through ATCC, but it was created specifically for us to enable Minnesota public safety and other appropriate partners to access the training modules more easily, without the need to remember a user name or password.

The URL will bring you directly to the module selection page; previous user names and passwords will no longer work.  There is also no POST credit offered for these modules anymore.  You will still be able to print a page once you have finished any module that represents your successful completion of that module.

This URL will not be shared publicly. If you need additional information or the URL, send an email to ECN, John Dooley, at
