globalgroup launch e-learning

Globalgroup are pleased to announce the launch of its new on line platform for e-learning. Within the month of May the platform will be used exclusively for the induction, training and updating on staff from all worldwide offices. On the 1 June 2015 the platform will be open to the general public for purchase, however, there will be some courses that will be available free of charge via a token system.

This year, 2015 there are many changes, such as ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 both being re-issued around September. There is also the new SA8000:2014 which has already been issued. The first courses to be released and be made available from the e-learning platform will be:

  • Risk Management Systems (ISO 31000)
  • Quality Management Systems (ISO 9001:2015 FDIS)
  • Environmental Management Systems (ISO 14001:2015)
  • Food Safety (GMP HACCP & Upgrade to FSSC 22000)

Alan Cherry, globalgroup Chairman said, “In designing this system we were mindful of the very busy schedule that people have these days and attending a course and being away from their place of work is a huge commitment. Also, with every increasing travel and hotel costs taking an e-learning course in someone’s own time and at their own pace I believe it is beneficial to the company the person is working for and the delegate as well as doing the training by a chapter or module allows time for training to sink in.”
