Sunrise, FL (PRWEB) September 23, 2006
Learn.com®, the global leader in on-demand workforce productivity, announced today that Foster and Adoptive Family Services has selected the LearnCenter Workforce Productivity Suite to deliver online at-home training to over 5,500 foster parents across the state of New Jersey.
“New Jersey state law requires each foster parent to complete 15 hours of in-service training to maintain their license on a yearly basis, so we needed a solution that would empower us to provide that training in an online format. LearnCenter will enable us to launch, track and manage every aspect of that initiative and provide our foster parents with the convenience of taking training from the comfort of their own homes,” said Francesca Gervasi, Director of Education and Training for Foster and Adoptive Family Services. “We are making every effort to make license maintenance as easy as possible for our over 5,500 parents across the state of New Jersey.”
“As a non-profit agency, we had to make sure that we selected a partner that not only has a great reputation and a secure and solid product, but also one that would not require additional service agreements to keep the solution running over the years. Additionally, we selected Learn.com’s LearnCenter because every component within the system is owned and operated by Learn.com with no middleware. Another benefit of training with LearnCenter is it does not require IT resources or a large staff to deliver training. LearnCenter will grow with us too. The product is very deep,” said Gervasi.
“We are very happy with the selection of Learn.com as our training partner. LearnCenter is our first LMS and we know we are in good hands,” said Gervasi. “We are looking forward to a long and productive partnership.”
