Bloomington, IN – September 9, 2010 – Envisage Technologies, a recognized leader in first-responder, law-enforcement and military training modernization and automation, announced today that the Utah Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) Academy has purchased the Learning Management System (LMS) module of the Acadis® Readiness Suite.
Utah plans to deploy the Acadis LMS to augment the residential and skills-based training that all officers are required to complete annually, thus capturing all dimensions of an officer’s lifelong learning within a unified legally defensible training record.
Increasingly, law enforcement and public safety agencies turn to online learning to reduce the costs, travel and time away from the job as a result of mandatory annual training. However, online learning creates two major challenges: securing sensitive officer information and integrating online training results into records management systems. The Acadis LMS addresses both challenges by delivering content through a secure portal framework that restricts access to Internet-accessible training content to appropriate online learners and protects sensitive officer information.
Further, the Acadis LMS is fully integrated into the Acadis Readiness Suite, so an officer’s training results, including test scores, are automatically and securely posted to their training record, residing in a secure area of the network.
Unlike generic LMS products, the Acadis LMS was designed specifically to address the security and compliance requirements of law enforcement and public safety organizations at a fraction of the cost of traditional LMS platforms.
“The Utah POST is leveraging the savings and benefits of blended learning and has made tremendous strides automating its training processes,” said Ari Vidali, CEO of Envisage Technologies. “The addition of the LMS was a logical next step in this evolution as it allows officers to access vital training from anywhere, eliminates costly travel and keeps the officers where they are most needed: on the street.”
