Automated Company LMS And The Aviation Business
How an automated corporate LMS can help in the aviation industry
There is a shortage of staff in the aviation industry. There can be many reasons for this deficiency, but the lack of a holistic, seamless learning and training environment would definitely be one of the reasons. As one of the most regulated industries, aviation requires well trained personnel, managers, planners, pilots and other qualified individuals. Hence, the need for an enterprise LMS is critical.
Doing this the traditional way is next to impossible due to the diversity of education and the diversity of learners. A corporate LMS is therefore a solution for the aviation industry to help address pressing challenges.
An automated corporate LMS helps the aviation industry in two ways: It benefits both the learner and the company.
Modular and self-directed learning
Everyone has a different pace of learning and acquiring information or knowledge. In addition, each one has different strengths and weaknesses and unique schedules. So the more convenient a learning system is, the better the training and the higher the engagement. This is exactly what automated corporate LMSs do; they make the entire learning experience modular and self-directed.
You get a central repository of your course content that all learners can access from anywhere, anytime. You can continue to add resources and material to this repository and it is available to anyone with real-time access. You can even create automated quizzes for feedback and save the time that would otherwise have been spent there.
Recognition increases engagement
A recent survey found that 1 in 3 people received praise in the past seven days. That was also the proportion of people who felt occupied with their work. This may be a coincidence, but there is a clear connection here.
Recognition and commitment go hand in hand. As much as you want to reward and encourage your people for every little achievement, there is seldom time in real life. An automated corporate LMS can make this easier for you. You can do this by looking at the statistics on the number of people who completed different courses, what grades they received, how long the course was completed, and so on.
To spice up this aspect further, you can use gamification. Gamification lets you set up levels, points, rewards, and leaderboards to identify milestones and encourage employees to keep moving with level training trips.
More feedback, more often
Aside from recognition, feedback also helps if it is given with good intentions. Often times, learners get stuck in their journey because they lack feedback and are unsure whether or not they are doing the right thing. There’s nothing worse than running relentlessly away only to find it was all in vain.
With an automated corporate LMS, trainers can provide personalized, clear, and timely feedback in a more structured way. You can also set up feedback follow-ups to help the learner throughout their journey, or share various learning resources relevant to a particular feedback (i.e. if the learner has yet to learn).
Anticipate your employees’ learning needs
As mentioned earlier, the aviation industry has seen many changes in the past few years. Based on empirical data, this change will only continue in the coming years. As a result, the work roles and thus also the learning needs of the employees are constantly evolving. Conventional learning systems do not meet such just-in-time learning requirements and are often tied to a strict structure. In this scenario, employees either have to request training themselves or wait for training.
An automated enterprise LMS completely solves this problem because you can use the dashboard to review various insights to measure work performance data. This includes details like completed exams, grades received, and more. These details can help you quickly assign the right courses to the right people and ensure that each employee is given the skills they need most and are most relevant to their job.
Reduce the time and money you spend
Training such a diverse audience as in the aviation industry is really an expensive proposition. Let’s take a small example, let’s say 1,000 employees need to have their authorizations renewed. You need to make sure that each and every one of them is informed in a timely manner and goes through the process before it expires, otherwise costly mistakes can occur.
With an automated company LMS, you can reduce these costs, as the system sends updates in a timely manner and the digitization of the authorization process makes the process more efficient. All of this of course leads to significant cost savings, especially when compared to traditional training methods.
The aviation industry has always struggled with the training aspect. Now it has a solution in the form of an automated corporate LMS.
