Features to Look for in Your Next Training Database
Whether you’re already using a training database, looking to create your own from scratch, or shopping around for one for the very first time. We have created a list of the do-not-skip when purchasing (or even creating) a training database. These features and functions will make sure that no training is skipped, all employees have passed their respective trainings, managers are notified, and the process is repeatable - not to mention, scalable.
So You've Been Using Microsoft Access for Your Training Database?
Microsoft Access, a software that comes within the Microsoft Office Suite, is known as an even better alternative to Microsoft Excel when it comes to creating a training database to track the training of your individual employees, monitor certification renewals, and more. While the software is robust enough to create tools to track other need-to-knows like job proposals, performance reviews, receipts and more, and can be used as a storage system for information that falls within these categories, the software can get just as cluttered as Excel. The information can become difficult to sort, search through, and ultimately loses its purpose other than a glorified holding place for lots of information that is important not to lose.
What is a Training Database?
Across most businesses, there is some sort of training that takes place. Whether this training is to keep employees abreast of the latest trends across the industry, or simply onboarding an employee with relevant HR information or organizational practices, it doesn’t matter. Each and every training that is completed to advance careers or to remain informed of changes should be documented by the relevant personnel to ensure there is no oversight.
