Tampa, FL, December 19, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- When times get tough, the tough get resourceful. Reduced costs, access to vast knowledge base are top-named benefits of customized online training and development solution
RedVector’s initiative to provide a comprehensive online training and education solution to corporations in the design and construction industry is wrapping up its first full year with ongoing success and the launch of its 45th private online university.
A corporation of any size can partner with RedVector to build an “online university” that reflects their brand, and populate it with courses relevant to its market − giving employees and clients a unique multi-purpose learning resource. While this educational tool lets employers offer their in-house staff corporate training and the ability to complete continuing education (CE) requirements, RedVector’s online universities are proving to be valuable in many additional ways.
“Our clients tell us that both existing and prospective employees appreciate the opportunity to complete their CE online or study for LEED exams,” says Marilyn Dennis, Director of Online Universities for RedVector. “But we’ve found that for architectural, engineering and construction concerns, having access to a core library of topics focused on their market that we’ve spent 10 years developing really resonates. Their customers are impressed by their ability to provide answers, and they use the library themselves for development, to help with project management, to assess risk management, and more – in essence, for a lot of things that would cost much more if they used consultants.”
Besides helping clients cut costs, the platform that supports the university encompasses a full learning management system that lets managers track usage and pull a variety of reports with ease.
Craig Lanham, VP Engineering at Henderson Engineers, says the online license tracking journal is one of the features of the Henderson Engineers University that he likes best. “It lets me track the license renewal dates for every professional on the staff, so I don’t run into problems with unlicensed employees,” he says. “And I can see what courses populate each license. It’s a great way to learn about the particular interests and skills of my staff.”
In addition to having the largest online library in the industry, RedVector covers PDHs for most state mandates.
“We were able to get everyone up to speed on Missouri’s new OSHA 10 requirement without a hitch,” said David Bennett, CEO of Engineering Surveys & Services, MO. “Employees were able to take the courses when it was convenient for them, and complete them at their own pace.”
Any size organization can have a branded online university based on RedVector’s course library up and running in as little as a week – and RedVector can work with clients to develop custom content when required.
RedVector sets the standard of excellence in online continuing education for licensed and certified professionals in the engineering, architectural, construction and long-term healthcare industries. With an online library exceeding 1,000 courses, authored by more than 100 subject matter experts and spanning all 50 states, RedVector serves more than 130,000 design and construction professionals. The recipient of numerous community honors and industry awards, RedVector was founded in 1999 and is headquartered in Tampa, Florida.
