JLG Industries, an Oshkosh company, McConnellsburg, Pa., a global manufacturer of mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs) and telehandlers, has updated its JLG® University learning platform to enhance the way it delivers its training programs. The updates are intended to provide a more modern experience, the company said.
JLG University offers American National Standards Institute (ANSI)-required safety training courses for machine operators, service technicians and supervisors. It also has a Train-the-Trainer program, which qualifies instructors nationwide to train operators.
“As the access industry continues to experience exponential growth, the need for quality, expert-led training is more important than ever. That’s why we’re making significant investments in our training offerings, combining JLG University and AccessReady into one, all-encompassing, all-new JLG University platform,” said Rick Smith, JLG’s director of product training.
JLG said its new JLG University offers users:
Access to a library of training content and videos as well as learning paths for continued growth.
Improved ways for training managers to manage and track their employees’ training, including the ability to assign specific courses, view students’ progress through the programs and download completion certificates and access new digital operator IDs.
More resources and teaching aids for instructors in the JLG Training Network, including the ability to efficiently purchase and assign courses and access to new business-creation tools.
“This newly launched platform enables us to deliver our world-class training to our customers through a truly industry-leading experience, helping them to grow their skills and increase the knowledge they need to excel in an evolving construction industry.
“Another important part of the site upgrade is that JLG University now is available through a single sign-on and connects with other JLG platforms, including JLG.com and OnlineExpress,” Smith said, adding that these elements allow the company to offer training opportunities for users to access along their equipment journey and in several formats, including traditional classroom settings and customer locations, instructor-led online training and self-paced e-learning.
“With this system, we have the ability to be agile in our improvements and training offerings based on the needs of our customers. It’s an exciting step into the next generation of learning,” Smith said.
