EDUCATIONAL MHEDA LMS RESOURCES A Treasure Chest of Employee Training MHEDA's New Learning Management System educates employees and tracks their learning progress BY STEVE GUGLIELMO M HEDA is constantly striving to improve our offerings to members. To do this, we rely on member feedback to surveys and questionnaires about what is working and what could be better. Consistently, member companies have told us that our industry-specific educational offerings are one of the primary reasons that they joined and remain a part of MHEDA. MHEDA is proud to introduce its new Learning Management System (LMS) to enhance our educational offerings for members. MHEDA's LMS is an online tool that provides members with a modern way to educate employees and track their learning progress. This affordable training tool comes in three forms: Career Track videos, On-Demand Webinars and Conference Video Presentations, which are all available in one location on MHEDA's LMS. Throughout the training, members can measure progress and knowledge retention using online tests to ensure that the lessons are working. Each test must be completed successfully to move on to the next portion of the training. "Most companies have access to product specific training from their respective OEM partners," says MHEDA Director Doug Carson, VP of Sales and Marketing at Fallsway Equipment. "What many member companies lack 68 MHEDA | themhedajournal.org are educational and training resources for general business management skills related to our industry. Now, our members have a place to turn for education tailored to the positions which exist in all of our businesses."

Each course track can be purchased and is available to the recipient for a year to complete the content. Members can use the coursework to help plan career development for their personnel. "Each course track blends general business skills training with industryspecific training produced by MHEDA relative to our members' specific positions within their organizations," says Carson. "We are able to offer all of this to our members at a price that we think is a terrific value." Currently there are 11 "career tracks" available through the LMS, each corresponding to a typical career track in a member company. These tracks are: senior management (general), senior management - industrial truck, sales management (general), sales management - industrial truck, sales professional, rental asset management, inside sales or customer service, parts and service manager, installation manager, service or installation technician, and project manager. Career tracks are a compilation of hundreds of videos that will help you improve your business skills in designated areas. Existing MHEDA University offerings and MHEDA-produced content are woven into these tracks, with the additional benefit of comprehension testing that didn't exist before. "We believe members will use it not only for training new hires, but also to help provide a vehicle to plan career paths," says Carson. "For instance, you http://www.themhedajournal.org
