FREDERICTON, New Brunswick — March 17, 2021 — With the addition of 180 Skills’ catalogue of technical skills courses, iTacit is poised to further improve the front-line employee experience. Through their mutual partnership agreement, iTacit will deliver the 180 Skills’ targeted learning package through their workforce communication platform’s built-in learning management system.180 Skills has a library of over 800 courses, providing quality training content in areas ranging technical skills including aerospace manufacturing, CNC machining, electrical skills, and employability skills including communications, team building, time management and more. With iTacit being adopted in industries like manufacturing, populating its LMS database with relevant skills training was essential.
“I spent years in manufacturing environments, and I can vouch for the importance of effective training,” states Luke Megarity, President and Chief Operations Officer of iTacit. “All it takes is one module missing from an employee’s learning, and a whole key process can be thrown out of order.”
