EMS personnel are responding to the convenience and flexibility of training programs completed by computer on their own schedules. Departmental leaders embracing this exciting new type of education have to keep accurate records of these sessions, or else they're undercutting training's value.

Departments that employ computer-based training are finding that the sessions are budget-friendly and adaptable ways to keep personnel up to date on important policies and techniques. The results must be logged quickly and accurately, however, or else trainees' hard work - as well as specific certifications they earn and compliance with regulations - might not be noted.

When workforce management software is part of the online solution, computer-based training courses can be included as part of training curriculum requirements. Personnel can register to take courses at their own convenience. Training managers can track which courses individuals have taken, with resulting scores saved as part of each employee's historical record. It's a centralized approach that saves time and money.

To learn more about the role of technology is playing in today's public safety workforce, stay tuned.
