New Learning Management System launching in 2017
CFA is set to roll out a new Learning Management System (LMS), which will provide a holistic approach to traditional training, digital learning and records management.
The new system has been developed by IMC Technologies, and will replace all of CFA’s existing training platforms, including: TRAIN, web TRAIN and Moodle.
Deputy Chief Officer for Training Gregg Paterson said the LMS will make it easier for CFA members to register and participate in training programs.
“The digital benefits of the new system are really exciting,” Gregg said.
“The LMS will allow CFA members to nominate and receive approval for training courses online, and it will also have the ability to host online course content.”
Gregg said the LMS has already been introduced at EMV, with SES also having purchased the system.
“This means there will be opportunities in the future for us to create interagency training schedules, and also to share programs,” he said.
User acceptance testing for the LMS is currently underway with training teams across the state, as well as testing for the data migration which will take place during November.
Further updates on the transition and implementation will be provided over coming months, with the new system scheduled to launch in early 2017.
