In the past, we used an Excel spreadsheet to track training. Unfortunately, with about 250 employees and over 100 compliance training tasks to complete, our tracking process slowed down and took a lot of time. Additionally, excel would frequently crash, which caused each department to start maintaining its own spreadsheet. As a result, data was everywhere and limited us to only tracking compliance training. Ensuring that the training information was accurate and entered in one place became difficult, if not impossible, especially during audits. Audits were a long, painful process for the staff and the inspectors.
We purchased Training Tracker in the last week of December 2022. It has helped us to track all of our training in one place, including compliance, internal departmental, and outside vendor training. It is straightforward to know employees’ training status: to ensure that all employees are current on their training and nothing is expired. Pulling up a list of employees with a particular certification is easy. In addition, we streamlined our process so that within seconds, a report is generated showing complete or incomplete training, and it is organized by the due date.
