Have you heard of SkillsonlineNS?

In Nova Scotia, we offer a program for employers to help nurture the best trained and most productive workforces possible. With courses in hundreds of business-oriented topics, available free of charge, SkillsonlineNS gives every Nova Scotian an opportunity to benefit from continuous learning. From the smallest startup to the biggest non-profit, SkillsonlineNS offers online learning tools to help build smarter, more productive, and more competitive teams.

Whether it’s training in Microsoft Office, social media, health and safety, or tips on finding and hiring the right worker, SkillsonlineNS offers valuable courses applicable to your business needs.

Candice Piercey, Manager of Training and Development at Acadian Seaplants used SkillsonlineNS in many ways, including integrating the program into the company’s ‘Smart Goals’ system.

“Often our employees have a training component associated with their goals. SkillsonlineNS is our first stop when sourcing training opportunities that tie into the employees’ professional development and the company’s strategic growth goals,” says Candice.

Employees can sign up for courses on their own, or employers can set up a private learning network to tailor learning plans for their employees by assigning courses, and monitoring their completion.

No special software is required. Simply take training where the Internet is available and when it’s convenient. Encourage continuous learning in your workplace, recharge your skills, and increase your business opportunities.
