Maritime learning technology provider Mintra has been awarded Gold Standard accreditation from the Learning and Performance Institute (LPI). The company, which supports the training and competency needs of maritime and other safety-critical organisations worldwide, achieved 100% attainment across eight key performance indicators audited by the LPI.
Mintra has 11 years of continuous accreditation from the LPI – an organisation recognised as the leading global authority for workplace learning and development – but this is the first time it has been awarded with the highest possible Gold Standard. In 2019 and 2020 Mintra was also featured in the LPI’s Top 15 Learning and Technology Providers.
Auditors noted that Mintra showed a corporate and individual intent and enthusiasm to continue to develop and expand learning modalities and to leverage emerging technologies. Ed Monk, CEO of the LPI, said: “Learning technology providers operate in a highly competitive space; they must ensure their products are accessible, stable, high-performing, compliant, scalable, and rich with reporting functionality.
The accreditation covers all aspects of Mintra’s capabilities, including its platform technologies such as the learning and competence management system Trainingportal, crew management software OCS HR and IMIST Online, which provides industry standard safety training for the energy sector. Off-the-shelf digital content and bespoke eLearning content and development services were also scrutinised.
Mintra learning and development director Janet Donaldson said the organisation was incredibly proud to achieve the Gold Level accreditation. She added: “It is a testament to the work that is carried out across the board at Mintra. In addition to auditing our technologies and content, auditors also examined all other areas of our operation from people development to business integrity. To achieve a score of 100% across all KPIs in the eight areas of scrutiny is a phenomenal performance.
