Scaling Compliance Training: Maximize the Potential of Your LMS

Creating training materials from scratch, scheduling and coordinating training sessions, manually enrolling participants, and keeping records of attendance, progress, and completion. Does this sound familiar? If so, the good news is that a more scalable approach to compliance training is possible.

Compliance training is a crucial part of every organization’s operations. However, as businesses grow, they often struggle to find scalable compliance training solutions that meet their evolving needs. Learning leaders focused on implementing and realizing program goals don’t want to spend their time managing logistical issues. When training is a means to an end – as compliance training often is – an effective Learning Management System (LMS) can serve as a valuable asset. This article will explore a few of the LMS features and capabilities that can help L&D teams scale their compliance training approach.

Off-the-Shelf Courses Offer Speed and Consistency

One of the advantages of using an LMS is the availability of pre-built, or off-the-shelf courses. Litmos offers pre-packaged modules that cover a wide range of compliance topics and are created by learning and design experts using best learning practices. These interactive and engaging courses not only captivate employees’ attention, but also lead to better retention of essential information.

By leveraging off-the-shelf courses, you can save time and resources, that would otherwise be spent on course development, updating, and in person training. Having access to a large library of courses and modules also allows you to deploy a consistent level of top-quality training more rapidly to your workforce.

If you’re using off-the-shelf compliance courses from Litmos, you’ll also benefit from regular course revisions that align with the latest regulatory changes. This means that your team can worry less about the accuracy and relevance of the content and focus on maximizing the impact of your learning programs.

Custom Learning Paths Tailor Compliance Training

Every organization is unique and compliance requirements can vary significantly from one industry to another. With an LMS, you can create custom learning paths or follow suggested ones that you can tailor to fulfil compliance obligations in a more targeted and effective way.

Custom learning paths guide employees through a series of modules, ensuring they receive comprehensive training relevant to their role, responsibilities, and region. Each employee receives relevant targeted training regardless of the size of the organization, which avoids time and resources being wasted on irrelevant content.

Gamification Levels Up Compulsory Training

Gamification is a powerful tool for increasing engagement and motivation in what can sometimes feel like not-so-fun compulsory training. An LMS platform that offers gamification features like badges, leader boards, and point systems, makes the learning experience more enjoyable.

By incorporating gamification elements and allocating additional points to the courses you need completed as soon as possible, you can motivate employees to finish their compliance training. After all, there’s nothing like a bit of healthy competition to motivate people! Game-based challenges and activities also bring a fun element to training which helps with information retention.

Dashboards Make Your Training More Data-Driven

For real-time insights into the progress of your compliance training initiatives, an LMS dashboard is your best friend. With dashboards, you can track who has completed their training, who is lagging, and identify any specific areas where additional support might be needed. Having an LMS with dashboards and custom reporting capabilities can help your team make more data-driven decisions and allocate resources where they are needed most. Produce reports with just one click from your dashboard and monitor the overall compliance training landscape within your organization.

Automation Saves Administrators Time

The LMS feature that will save you the most time is likely automation. Automation allows you or your administrator to streamline the management of compliance training, from assigning courses to tracking progress and sending out timely reminders. This not only saves time and reduces administrative tasks but also ensures that employees receive the right training at the right time.

Now that you’ve reviewed some ways in which you can optimize your approach to compliance training, take a look at your current compliance program. Are your employees missing compliance training deadlines? Is your L&D or HR team feeling overwhelmed with administrative tasks or distracted from more meaningful learning program duties? The tips above might help your organization mitigate risk with a more effective and scalable compliance training program.

Compliance training is a critical aspect of any organization and scaling it effectively can be a daunting task. However, with the right LMS and training content, you can streamline your training programs, maintain high standards of compliance, and create a positive learning culture.
