New Professional Development Training

TargetSolutions’ training catalogs feature thousands of hours of continuing education training for the fire service, EMS, law enforcement, human resources, driver safety, AEC and more. The course library is frequently reviewed to identify opportunities for new training topics, make course updates and remove courses when necessary.

After a thorough evaluation of the training catalogs, 269 courses were identified for removal from the TargetSolutions course library – 137 of which are being replaced with newer content. Additionally, 27 new courses will be added to address important topics for office productivity and business effectiveness.

Courses Being Removed from the TargetSolutions Course Library

To ensure training remains valuable and to reduce redundancy in TargetSolutions’ catalogs, courses were reviewed for their content, accuracy, relevance and utilization.

Based on this criteria, 132 courses will be retired or “sunset” in July 2020 and 137 courses will be replaced with updated courses. In addition to consolidating TargetSolutions’ online course library, sunsetting courses allows efforts to be focused on updating more timely training topics.

This sunset will primarily affect the IT & Security, Office Productivity andPower & Utilities catalogs. Due to this, training progress for these lessons will be lost if not completed before July 16, 2020.
