“solid partner…100% compliance, 100% of the time”
Online training doesn’t have to be an ‘all or nothing’ solution to your Operator Qualification needs!
At Missouri Gas Energy, we’ve been involved with ENERGY worldnet from the beginning and have found them to be a solid partner in helping MGE achieve and maintain our goal of 100% compliance, 100% of the time. ENERGY worldnet’s easily configurable reports are valuable tools MGE’s trainers and I use daily. The reports and Dashboard feature put your employee’s and contractor’s OQ records at your fingertips from anywhere – I even use them from my smartphone.
At MGE, we’ve successfully used ENERGY worldnet’s online courses and have also created a library of our own customized courses within ENERGY worldnet’s system. If you can create a PowerPoint, you can create your own courses, without the need to hire a staff of expensive IT pros. ENERGY worldnet’s experienced technical staff and OQ experts are available to support us at every turn, all in a competitively priced package.
As I mentioned, online training is an essential piece of the OQ puzzle, but not the only piece. At MGE, we’ve found that by freeing our training staff from the classroom, we can spend much more time in the field, working with employees hands-on, where the best and most realistic training takes place. If we had to give up ENERGY worldnet and go back to the days of classroom training and paper based records, I would have to hire at least one additional employee just to keep up. Obviously we would rather invest in technology and instant access to training data, which is why Missouri Gas Energy is a satisfied ENERGY worldnet client.
