To make their safety training more efficient, Yara was looking for a solution that would enable them to transfer their hundreds of annual classroom training sessions to an online format so that they could be completed independently in a way that would not compromise the impact of the training. MPS’s digital learning tools, the Gimlet LMS learning environment and the Gimlet Composer authoring tool, were a precise match with Yara’s needs, providing a suitable environment for creating e-learning and delivering the training.
