JLG on-line training optimizes study time

18 February 2009

JLG has developed an on-line training system for its customers which will help them make the best use of their time. The Learning Management System allows customers to take on-line courses and maintain their training history for both on-line and classroom courses.

Todd Truax, JLG Industries director of training said, "On-line training is the fastest growing venue for training in education and business. JLG's on-line Training offers a convenient and effective means for our customers to build their skills and knowledge in a variety of functional areas pertinent to their business. On-line training reduces travel expense, time away from work and enhances the learning experience."

JLG currently has four courses available online:

  • Basic Electric
  • Basic Hydraulic
  • Warranty Fundamentals (warranty policy)
  • Service Bench (warranty system)

The company is planning to develop its on-line training to complement its existing instructor-led courses. These courses will benefit from having an on-line component taken as a prerequisite to make the time spent at a JLG training course more efficient with increased hands-on time and instructor interaction. In the future, JLG's on-line training program will include sales training and training record management.
