SGS Launches New eLearning Technology for Management System Standards Training

Geneva, Switzerland, October 01, 2017 --( SGS Academy is pleased to announce the launch of four cutting edge eLearning courses to deliver personalized learning experiences to today's learners.

SGS Academy, the training and development business of SGS, has developed new eLearning technology to deliver introductory courses for:

ISO 9001:2015 – Quality Management System
ISO 14001:2015 – Environmental Management System
FSSC 22000 Version 4.1 – Food Safety System Certification
IATF 16949:2016 – Automotive Quality Management System

The modern worker spends, on average, just 1% of their working week on training and development. This is due to multiple factors, including timing, work load and location. SGS's eLearning courses have been designed to meet these needs, by allowing the learner to participate from any location, at a time to suit them, and from a variety of different devices.

With this new eLearning technology, content can be presented in an interactive way, including animations, videos and responsive questions and answers. These courses have been developed for those who want to understand these standards’ objectives and practicality, and how that can be translated within their own organization. Each course provides an overview of the standard’s structure and terminology, detailed requirements, purpose and intent of the management system standard, as well as tips and guides for adoption.

When asked about the impact of this technology, Laurent Corbaz, SGS Global Head of Training, said: “SGS Academy has an extensive training portfolio with many years of face to face delivery experience and subject matter expertise across the globe. To meet the ongoing needs of employers and modern learners we have developed this series of comprehensive, fully digitalized, eLearning courses that can be delivered as a standalone module, or as part of a blended learning solution that can be aligned with our classroom based training. This launch not only signifies a step forward for SGS Academy, but also for the industry, as we take a traditional business and adapt it for the modern age.”

SGS Academy also offers other methods of training and development, including client branded and bespoke solutions, both in person and online. These methodologies allow for a seamless and flexible implementation, increasing overall employee engagement.
