Ensure your workforce is trained, skilled and certified to drive productivity and maintain compliance
Deliver the training required for each individual with complete
visibility throughout the knowledge acquisition process
A key part of quality, compliance and safety management, CQ Training Management allows you to train employees in a timely fashion, and keep your workforce skilled with constantly evolving changes in the environment. Integrating training into your EQMS supports a stable, reliable and repeatable training management process, ensuring that your entire organization has the knowledge it needs, from GxP guidelines to international standards to government regulations.
CQ Training Management tackles this challenge by helping businesses manage all personnel, job functions, requirements by job functions, courses and documents to be trained on. Strengthen your organization from within by streamlining the training process and ensuring knowledge and retention.
Build Employee Competency & Ensure Job Readiness
Increase training program effectiveness, and ensure training compliance and workforce competency by seamlessly managing training plans, policies and learning content in one place. Through workforce digitalization capabilities, you can improve knowledge acquisition visibility and traceability. Rely on a single source of learning content that can be easily accessed anywhere to speed employee adoption and empower employees to create a culture of transformation.
Maintain Compliance and Always be ‘Audit Ready’
Gain a complete view of training compliance with your documents connected to training programs and data that is stored and easily retrieved from one place. As a key regulatory requirement (e.g., ISO, FDA, OSHA) for industries such as life sciences, aerospace and defense, chemical, etc., ensure your employees are continually trained and able to demonstrate audit and inspection readiness. With ready and automated access to new content as it’s developed, your workforce is well positioned to rapidly deal with new regulations.
Develop Individualized and Role-Specific Training
Define training plans specific to particular job roles/titles to ensure position-specific functionality and compliance. Allow employees to use different approaches to learn specific content. They can read a document or course content online (self-training) and sign-off on their own training record; managers can confirm knowledge and signoff, or assessments to verify learning can be required.
Maintain Up-to-Date Training Records
Support Online Learning for Virtual Environment
Build and maintain extendible and scalable e-learning programs for employees to access regardless of location. Easily create content for online learning programs or integrate with third party learning management systems (LMS). Replace traditional classroom programs and/or supplement your own content with access to ready-made online learning with LearnAboutGMP and Learn About Safety content.

Ensure process change information is consistently shared throughout the organization and not forgotten.
Develop job function specific tests to ensure employees are trained and verify comprehension. Define required passing percentages and the ability to retake exams, thus increasing the compliance and the skill of employees.
Transfer knowledge from one or more documents or courses in a formal classroom setting via sign-ups, course invites, classroom management, calendaring, sign-offs and assessments.
In a more virtual environment, employees can easily collaborate with others (e.g., instructors/peers) via Chatter, the platform’s real-time Salesforce.com-based enterprise collaboration software.

Why is Training Management So Important?
- Studies show that investments in training lead to greater employee retention, operational efficiency and corporate profitability.
- Supporting a continuous improvement strategy relies on a closed-loop training system where employees are regularly trained, updated with new knowledge and practices as needed, and automatically tracked to ensure compliance.
- Auditors can ask to see specific training records for individual employees, easily provided with a comprehensive, automated reporting system.
- To ensure your workforce follows GxP guidelines and requirements, a systematic approach is required for consistent knowledge sharing.
- Regularly operating in a more virtual world requires a training platform designed to support micro-learning, online collaboration and emerging technologies.
