Annual competencies for agency/system float staff

How are other educators handling annual competencies? When I was hospital based, all my staff would come in rotate through stations for a couple hours and be done. I know some hospitals do them via online modules. I have staff all over the country. I’m looking for ideas for them to meet annual requirements. Some could just roll in with hospital staff where they’re at, but others may not be working during that timeframe. Looking for any of your ideas or experience.

We have slowly moved all our annual competencies online over the last few years. Covid has forced our hand to do it completely. Especially if you have staff all over the place, there's really no way you could do it in person. Rolling them in with the hospital staff would create lots of inconsistencies in who is getting what training.
