Streamline - Winter 2015 - (Page 44)
INDUSTRy STUDIES havE shown employee training budgets
for most water and wastewater utilities are tighter than ever.
Web-based operator certification and license renewal training
provides employers and their employees the flexibility to take
training courses at their own pace, without the hassle and cost
of attending live classes. Studies show online training can be as
effective as - or even more effective than - live classroom instruction, correspondence or CD-ROM based courses. Plus, online
training is more convenient, less expensive and easier to manage.
No Travel Cost
Water and wastewater utilities can save a significant amount
of money using eLearning versus having employees travel great
distances in order to attend instructor-led classroom training.
Just think of the time and money that can be saved without the
expense of a hotel and meals, and the increased productivity
of your employee as a result of saved time.
Easy To Use
Our eLearning courseware is very user-friendly and is
designed to keep the attention of the student through the use
of charts, graphs and other interactive technology.
Variety Of Courses Available
Students can access eLearning courses at home or office,
day or night. All that is required is a computer with a 56k or
better Internet connection.
Water and wastewater operators registering for eLearning
courses will have a menu of courses to choose from. We are
constantly adding and updating courseware to reflect changing
industry needs and regulations.
Automated Course Tracking
Students move through the eLearning courses at their own
pace. A quiz at the end of most modules reinforces the student's
knowledge of the subject matter. Students who master 70 percent of the material in each module will advance to the next.
Automated tracking of student progress and completion of
classes is easy to access and manage. Information is readily
available to the student or employers and customized reports
can be printed.
Convenience Of Anytime, Anywhere Training
