I’m often faced with the challenge of having to log into different sites and programmes just to view the training or competencies for an individual.

This might be as a result of a department merger, a business takeover or just the fact we have several business locations. Our HR department will know some of the information but not everything is recorded. Sometimes, the individual doesn’t give a copy of  a training certificate to HR as they never have a reason to go over to the HR department. More likely is the copy of the certificate is sitting in their Managers draw or filing cabinet. It shouldn’t be this difficult trying to find out who has done training across our organisation.

Ideally one common database where you could see all of this information would be the solution.  Easy to use where Employees and Managers could add in training and qualifications.  More senior management within the organisation could see all or just a limited selection of sub-companies and departments.

All I want to do is the see how many people within the companies or sub-departments have done a particular piece of training. It would also be useful to know who is still outstanding certain training and who has training that’s expired.


In our fast moving world, the challenge for an organisation is to have the information available at the push of a few buttons. Knowing that you can use an employee or even a contractor because they hold the correct training or entitlement is an important factor to safely running the business.
