1 April 2005 | 0
The Irish Aviation Authority has deployed a range of e-learning products from Intuition to boost its staff training.
As part of a six-figure contract, Intuition will provide e-learning systems across a range of business skills, including project management, finance, management and personal skills, as well as the European Computer Driving Licence (ECDL) and Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) certifications.
Frank Devlin, recruitment and equality manager at the IAA, said that that Authority chose Intuition because it wanted to take advantage of its own internal expertise and intellectual property. ‘We were particularly impressed with Intuition’s commitment to manage, launch and implement the programme through strong internal marketing in a series of open days and workshops,’ he said. ‘Usage is the key to success in any e-learning programme and we’re confident that the organisation is turned on to the initiative.’
The contract consists of the implementation of a three-month revolving library system, which can be accessed by IAA staff via the company’s intranet and dedicated PC workstations. Commenting on the announcement, David Harrison, chief executive of Intuition, said: ‘The awarding of this contract by a large Irish semi-state body is a further endorsement of our record in supplying world-class learning solutions to the specific requirements of a growing public sector client base.’
The system supplied includes Intuition Manager, a fully SCORM 1.2 compliant Learning Management System (LMS), which is compatible with any SCORM 1.2 compliant course, produced by Intuition or third party supplier.. The company will also supply the IAA with its content publishing tool, Intuition Publisher, enabling the IAA to create its own training and assessment materials.
The Intuition systems are available to employees in all the IAA locations including its headquarters in Dublin, its new air traffic control centre at Shannon, Dublin, Cork and Shannon Airports and its High Frequency radio centre at Ballygirreen, Clare.
