Area9 partners with Lloyds Register to bring adaptive benefits to product safety training
The CE mark is a symbol we see every day on any number of products, from your electric kettle to the screen or device you’re reading this article on. CE marking is a key indicator of a product’s compliance with European Union (EU) health, safety and environmental protection directives and regulations. It is essentially a passport for products to be advertised or placed on the market within the EU.
Last year, the European Commission launched a number of revisions to ensure products requiring the CE mark are compliant and safe. These revisions also call for stricter market surveillance and checking at customs – therefore it is more important now than ever to make sure staff understand the CE marking scope, process and penalties for non-compliance.
That’s why Lloyds Register (LR) has launched a new, adaptive online training course, built on Area9 Learning’s industry leading learning technology, which acts as an umbrella introduction to CE marking and a number of EC Directives that industrial companies need to consider.
A key difference (compared to traditional online training) is that the course will adapt to each participant, based on his or her knowledge level, confidence and needs. Area9’s adaptive technology is ideally suited to this application, where competency is crucial, and staff already have some existing knowledge that might be incomplete or outdated. Area9’s ability to reliably uncover and correct ‘unconscious incompetence’ – hidden mistakes and gaps in knowledge – means companies can be confident in their workers ability to meet the new CE mark requirements.
The course is available now in three different product packages (Standard, Plus and Personalised).
