Learning Management System (LMS)
Learning Management for Safety
As part of BIStrainer’s comprehensive suite of Learning & Compliance software, you have access to an enterprise-level learning management system (LMS) that includes a robust exam engine, full SCORM compatibility, an integrated eCommerce store, and a course permission management system.
What truly sets BIStrainer apart from traditional learning management systems is that the built in course player is designed to do more than just play back a course. The system can ask for the student to upload historical training records right inside the course. It can also ask the student to fill out forms, upload paperwork, enter information that is passed to the right parts of the system, like ‘Emergency Contact’ information or ‘Driver’s documents’.
BIStrainer is designed for companies with strong safety training needs. Therefore, many of its supporting features strongly align with safety, making BIStrainer a perfect fit for any company’s safety program.
Training Matrix – Automatically Assign Safety Training
The Training Matrix integrated into the BIStrainer Learning Management Software allows you to setup all the roles, training topics, training requirements, and certification programs and can then automatically assign all required and optional training courses to your employees based on their role, location, expiration, division and more. It can also provide gap reporting, compliance tracking and certification progress.
Assign new and current employees all the online and classroom based training they need without the headache of manual spreadsheets.

Dynamic Course Content
Location specific elements
Using the integrated course builder, you can add location specific elements to online courses that ONLY display based on the student’s location. Courses can have country, province, or city specific videos and information that only appears to people taking the course from that area.
Imagine adding slides, videos, images, documents, or more with a focus on Ontario, and it only shows for workers in Ontario. You can add separate slides, in the same course, that only display for users in another province, like Alberta.
You could create a single fall protection course dynamically designed with different slides, videos, and questions for users in each province. The potential is amazing, and the possibilities are endless!
Create and upload your own online courses and orientations with the user-friendly content management system, or have our professional development team do it for you!
Add digital forms directly to your course, whether for practical inspection checklist training or to collect survey feedback.
