Blended learning concept at Loesche
A well-educated workforce provides for reliable and economical operation. Qualified personnel safeguard the availability and economic efficiency of plants in the long term. The Loesche Training Centre uses the principle of ‘integrated learning‘ (the Blended Learning Concept) with the aid of the latest learning methods and media. Loesche combines online training courses with traditional attended teaching in order to consolidate the knowledge transferred in the best manner possible and with lasting effect. The combination of classroom training and eLearning has already successfully established itself in the advanced vocational training of Loesche personnel and is now also used for customer training.
Nowadays, changes in society, working life, and technical developments happen in a rapid way. Whoever wants to keep up with this development, has to train himself regularly. In Loesche’s case, this trend towards self-education has happened in parallel with very fast growth of the company within the last years. An increasing number of new Loesche employees worldwide as well as all the experienced staff need to be trained regularly. Additionally, customers’ request for regular training on diff erent levels and topics are increasing. Th erefore, a Loesche specialist team had to find appropriate solutions for the following questions:
• How can Loesche guarantee a stable and highquality knowledge transfer to all of its employees and customers worldwide?
• How can Loesche train its staff and all customers to keep them up-to-date?
• How can Loesche guarantee a sufficient flexibility in the learning process, while also considering individual requirements and living circumstances of the trainees?
To find a solution for these questions, Loesche decided to start up a centralised Training Centre, based in Düsseldorf, Germany, which was launched in spring 2008. Th is article gives a short overview on the development of the most suitable training resource for both employees and customers of Loesche worldwide: The Loesche Training Centre.
