Nowadays, training and employee certification is essential to many modern businesses in North America.
From oil & gas facilities, to manufacturing units, to painting and coating operations, the need to stay on top of training is vital. From handling hazardous waste to basic first aid, every enterprise regularly relies on individual employees having the right training and expertise for the task at hand.
From a Health & Safety perspective, employers face the real risk of compliance violation whenever a health & safety related incident occurs. The penalties can be even worse if a regulator such as the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) identifies a gap in training as the root cause.
A popular solution to meet this need is to employ a Learning Management System (LMS), which can centrally administer training and certification processes. LMS Training is now an established practice in many modern businesses in the US and Canada.
An ideal LMS administers training, integrates with existing training modules, and can track and indicate when training is required. This symbiotic identification of need, feeding directly into the practical testing and examination, is often facilitated by the versatile SCORM data format – taking the form of a small package (SCORM package) of evaluation and examination data.
