JLG on-line training optimizes study time
By Maria Hadlow18 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.
