The In-service Training Module should be a complete solution for managing a training program for employees, whether trainings are given by the employer or by external organizations. It should track trainings that an employee has completed and assess competencies based on those trainings; thus, it is very closely linked to the Competency Model Module that will also need to be developed. This module should enable the organization to develop and implement training plans for employees, in order to ensure that the employee meets the qualifications required for his/her job and is remaning updated on new requirements.

High-Level Goals

  • Track training programs.
  • Create employee training plans.
  • Link trainings that employees have completed to assessed competencies.
  • Track scholarships awarded to employees.
  • Import trainings from other systems and link to competencies (would be nice).
  • Link trainings to promotions and raises (would be nice; probably later).
