Significant Cost Savings

In the long-term, online training minimizes various costs associated with in-person classroom learning. These costs potentially include meals, transportation, accommodations, classroom maintenance, venue rental, printed materials, and scheduling instructors/support staff for half-day or full-day sessions. Online learning also means less time away from work for employees, positively impacting productivity.


On-Demand Training & Results

Training is delivered on-demand and is accessible without the requirement of full class size. E-Learning programs linked on the City Intranet make self-administration simple and easy. Guided training is provided to cover numerous topics and is accompanied by automatic notifications sent to the employee’s supervisor upon course completion.
