All-New Credentials Completions Report

Credentials Completions Report

With this all-new report, you can pull data about credentials with its topic breakdown per individual in your organization.

When it comes to training management, the ability to track and report continuing education or other training requirements is nearly as essential as assigning the training itself. Without accurately documenting an individual’s training progress, how can you prove compliance for ISO, federal, state and other training authorities?

TargetSolutions’ reporting functionalities make it simple for platform managers to monitor personnel’s training – from online courses to custom-made assignments, to offsite training exercises. To help organizations assess platform users’ completed training in a credential according to topics, an all-new category has been added to the Generate Reports tab: Credentials – Completions.

TargetSolutions worked with the IAFC-VCOS to release a new course for fire departments: Maximizing Your Volunteer Firefighter Recruitment Efforts with an Effective Open House. 

It’s no secret that recruitment is one of the largest issues for volunteer fire departments. As the rate of emergency calls skyrocket, recruitment numbers are on the decline and volunteer fire departments are increasingly overwhelmed.

Do you focus on public education, safety, and the recruitment of potential new volunteers? All three aspects are equally as important in gaining new members.

To help address some of these issues for volunteer fire department recruitment, TargetSolutions worked with the International Association of Fire Chiefs – Volunteer & Combination Officers Section (IAFC-VCOS).
