IPIMS, the highly respected e-Learning competency development system created by IHRDC for the Upstream Petroleum Industry has earned SCORM certification for its Background Learning and Action Learning courses.

Boston (PRWEB) August 21, 2005 International Human Resources Development Corporation (IHRDC) announced today that IPIMS Background and Action Learning courses have been SCORM 1.2 certified by the Advanced Distributed Learning Lab (ADL).

Timothy Donohue, Director of Media Production explained the importance of this step "While our courses have always been SCORM compliant, we are happy to have achieved official certification by ADL. As our clients around the world increase their usage of e-Learning in the years to come, this certification insures that we will be ready to meet their requirements with ease."

SCORM, which stands for Sharable Content Object Reference Model, is an international standard which creates a method for which disparate learning software communicate, regardless of language, locality or type of learning content. SCORM creates one unified "reference model" of interrelated technical specifications and guidelines designed to meet today's high-level requirements for Web-based learning content.

It is an international standard of rules for how a learning plan or course can be opened and how it communicates with other systems. This allows a company to have content from many different providers, and see an employee’s performance using just one system.

Timothy Donohue, went on the clarify "SCORM allows human resource managers to purchase training content from around the world using an open source standard. Progress of employees can be tracked and reported on using a single learning management system (LMS). This allows companies a high degree of freedom to choose training materials that best fit their needs, instead of many other one-size-fits-all approaches that are out there."
