Wondering how to cut training costs while ensuring high standards? Discover how to implement online training like a pro in Global-5’s July 14 lunch-and-learn webinar on Computer-Based Training.

As companies gear up for full-scale business with the lifting of pandemic restrictions, firms face new challenges:

  • How do companies make sure returning workers are up-to-date on their department’s latest procedures?
  • How do firms find a cost-effective and reliable way to train new workers quickly and efficiently?

The answers can be found in versatile Computer-Based Training (CBT) modules and Learning Management Systems (LMS).

Global-5 specialists have created solutions for a wide array of businesses and skill sets with CBT, which allows employees to learn at their own pace and take tests on the information without hiring expensive instructors. With an LMS, companies can maintain records, manage refinements, and add new courses.

Global-5 Senior Vice President and LMS Practice Leader Chris Addison and Senior LMS Administrator Fidela Balamani will present the one-hour session.
