A proven platform that helps our customers re-imagine the way their training partners, clients and/or suppliers cooperate in the training and credentialing of workers.
Bringing structure to complex training that overwhelms a traditional LMS.
The SkillsPass story
  • The origins of SkillsPass trace back to our earliest days working on custom workforce training solutions with a global roster of enterprise-scale clients. We identified a large gap in upskilling and credentialing at regional or industry-wide levels. Specifically, how would a regulator manage training with hundreds of approved training partners? How could governments deploy upskilling across thousands of businesses? How would corporations manage training for their supply chain? We walked away from an enterprise practice that included the global leaders in seven different industries. Instead, Bluedrop chose the road less travelled. We would forge new solutions for the groups the eLearning industry left behind.
  • The traditional LMS is organizationally siloed. They offer limited value when training is required across industries, with numerous stakeholders and a workforce that stretches across many employers. A new technology and approach was necessary to seamlessly facilitate this broad coordination- and we called it Integrated Skills Management (ISM).
Training Delivery & Credential Management-
Reimagined

SkillsPass is a cloud-based Integrated Skills Management (ISM) Platform for upskilling and credentialing workforces. It replaces outdated and piecemeal approaches to complex training challenges facing all stakeholders, including workers, employers, training providers, regulators, and governments.

SkillsPass solves a range of regional and industry training and certification challenges, whether they were driven by regulations, or the need to upgrade skills to meet evolving market demands. 

SkillPass adheres to the world’s most demanding privacy, security, and accessibility requirements. Simply put, we bring structure to complex training situations that overwhelm traditional Learning Management Solutions.

Enabling on-demand upskilling for job seekers and employees facing rapid change in the workplace by advancing employability and strengthening attachment to the workforce.

Delivering targeted training for industries in transition with rapid response capability for urgent skill development for workforces struggling with new regulations, competitive pressures, and technology upheaval.

Modernizing credential management for OHS and Regulatory training– by providing the training equivalent of an electronic medical health system. Instead of health records, patients and healthcare providers, SkillsPass focuses on workers, employers, training providers and regulators.

  • Including governments, regulators, industry associations, unions, career centers, training providers, employers and more.

    • ONLINE TRAINING HUB– our embedded MarketPlusTM online training marketplace- allowing our clients to go beyond their own training offerings and consolidate external training sources, whether classroom, online, or virtual. 
    • UNIQUE ARCHITECTURE– Industry open architecture solution design that enables third party solution integration and the bringing together of key partners/systems and eliminating the siloed, restrictive nature of the traditional LMS.

    • DIGITAL WORKER PASSPORT– The industry-first SkillsPass Worker Passport, allowing end-users to access and share their validated credentials securely with employers and regulators (via QR code).
    • MULTI-LEVEL REPORTING– Robust reporting and insights at an employer and industry (client) level. Clients can provide a business account for each employer partner to allow them to track valid certificates, assign training, and see the final results and expiry notifications. The platform also generates valuable client insights about training completion at certificate, demographic, partner, industry, and regional levels.
