SIM Lands a Major Contract to Create an E-Learning Training Platform for Pratt & Whitney Canada

Pratt & Whitney Canada

e-Learning technology for health and safety

SIM, specialist in business training and subcontractor qualification management, recently won the contract for the development of a training platform that will enable orientation and health/safety and environmental training for PWC subcontractors to be put online. This innovative solution will enable company subcontractors to receive online the orientation training and evaluation required for access to PWC sites.

SIM was commissioned to create the e-learning platform, integrate the existing training content and make it available 24/7 online. This powerful training management tool will not only be used at the Montreal area Pratt & Whitney Canada production facilities, but also in Halifax, N.S. and Mississauga, ON.

The interface will enable broadcast of the company health/safety and environmental training, and will also link to the employee management module of the Cognibox software suite, which records all training taken by an employee. Cognibox is used by major corporations to manage subcontractor employee qualification and training before they carry out work onsite at their facilities.

The e-learning training system will enable, through a gateway system, real-time verification at the entrance gate whether an employee has successfully completed training, so that site access can be authorized or refused.

This project is part of Pratt & Whitney Canada’s commitment to the safety of workers on its sites.
