Industry Training – Delivering Industry-Wide Training with Rapid Response Capability

December 20, 2022


Industries around the globe are struggling with the pace of change, and it’s a pervasive issue that affects every employer. All work has become ‘digital-first,’ with even the most basic tasks and functions requiring advanced skill development and continuous training.

In addition, industries are regularly impacted by shifts in operational, security, and health or safety procedures resulting from unplanned variables (e.g., COVID-19) that require urgent attention. Research shows that individual employers are ill-equipped to effectively address these challenges.

The solution therefore falls to the industry itself to source, sponsor, and deploy relevant training that effectively responds
to common employer challenges and technology upheaval. And timing is of the essence for industry employers and workers to remain truly relevant.

Progressive jurisdictions are now addressing the challenge top-down.
They do so by deploying licensed or custom courseware, through advanced training platforms that allow for delivery across all employers.

Deploying industry-wide training is hard. We fix that. With SkillsPass, our customers and partners can deliver targeted training to help rescue entire industries struggling with requirements that would overwhelm
a traditional single-employer LMS.
