SBCA’s Strike Force 4 group is tasked with implementing a multi-mode education delivery strategy to allow for face-to-face, online and digital education and training for the component manufacturing industry. Based on this objective, Strike Force 4 met in April to evaluate a new learning management system (LMS) that SBCA staff considers a suitable platform for hosting online education programs for the industry.

After watching a demonstration of the LMS platform, Brad Unruh, General Manager at Timberlake TrussWorks in Helena, Oklahoma, shared his perspective. “This is really good! I like how it is getting moved to a much more modern system which will help with the younger generation.”

The LMS offers a lot of flexibility for program setup and uses the same platform as SBCA’s current web content, which will allow for an integrated approach and single sign-in capability. SBCA is currently working to set up all the safety programs and TTT Level I in the new LMS so they can be made available for SBCA members. Once these initial programs are available and functioning as expected, additional training programs will be added to the new LMS.

Building on this success, Strike Force 4 plans to work with Strike Force 3 to address additional training curriculum focused on safety and lean topics.
