Streamline - Spring 2013 - (Page 43)

Benefits 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. INDUSTRY STUDIES HAVE No Travel Cost Easy To Use 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. 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. Convenience Of Anytime, Anywhere Training 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. Self-Paced Lessons 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. Variety Of Courses Available 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 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.
