NASHUA, N.H.--()--To meet the growing demand for up-to-date training content to address regulatory and compliance requirements, Skillsoft today announced an enhanced collection of customizable courseware covering a wide range of compliance and risk mitigation topics. Covering an expanse of mounting compliance concerns ranging from simple standards to extremely complicated regulations, Skillsoft's compliance courses are built specifically to prepare learners for exams or meet regulatory requirements and help employees understand how these regulations impact mission critical aspects of their day-to-day work. The courses are available on demand anytime and offer a real-world, practical approach to compliance training. Administrative features provide easy tracking of completion and scoring for audit preparation. Skillsoft is a pioneer in the field of technology-delivered learning with a long history of innovation and delivering solutions for its customers worldwide, ranging from global enterprises, government, and education to mid-sized and small businesses.

Designed in partnership with nationally and globally-recognized subject matter experts, Skillsoft's compliance training courseware features a high level of interactivity and scenario-based video content designed to hold learners' interest and keep them engaged. Courses address universal issues such as ethics, bribery, harassment, wage and hour, equal employment opportunities and privacy as well as content designed specifically for employees of federal government agencies. In addition, Skillsoft has dedicated curricula that cover environmental, health and safety as well as food and alcohol safety topics.

"Meeting compliance-related obligations is one of the most pressing and complex issues facing employers today. If your organization does not adhere to regulatory requirements and meet legal needs, you run the risk of costly investigations, fines, lawsuits, employee turnover and brand erosion," said Eugene Van Biert, vice president & general manager, global compliance solutions, Skillsoft. "We've partnered with leading subject matter experts across our three core solution areas to offer the most comprehensive compliance training courses and ensure that our content is thorough, current and accurate from a regulatory perspective in the continually-changing legal landscape.
