-- The Certify Learning System (CLS) has recently completed a three-month pilot of the Learning Professional Certification program with the Enterprise Learning! Institute and has proven that informal programs can be tracked and independent learners rewarded for their learning.
CLS registers employees online from any internet connected device, and records every kind of learning event from a wide variety of providers. By assigning credits to these events, the cloud-based system allows employers to maintain an up-to-date record of employee’s informal learning.
“Since learning never stops or even slows down, you want to be able to identify the people who are always learning.” states David Grebow CEO, KnowledgeStar and Advisor to the LPC programs. “Highly motivated learners are the smartest employees, and CertifyLearning is like a GPS that guides you to them when you need to know who they are. The system is ideal for finding your knowledge stars.”
Lauren Piper, CertifyLearning Program Director, said “Employers need to know which people are up-to-date and current about practices and procedures that impact on their business. The Certify Learning System helps identify the people who are continuously learning to stay among the best in their field."
Because the CLS records are cloud-based they are portable and follow the registered individual from company to company. This differs from Learning Management Systems (LMS) where records are kept private by a single employer. This makes CLS especially useful for people who frequently work for different employers in the same field.
