GeoLearning, Inc., a provider of ASP-hosted human capital management and development (HCMD) solutions, has announced that the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has selected the company's GeoMaestro learning management platform to administer agency-wide training and development for its employees. The NRC program is part of the federal government's Gov Online Learning Center e-Training Initiative. The Gov Online Learning Center (GOLC), which is also powered by GeoLearning's GeoMaestro LMS, provides access to etraining services for people employed by the federal government. The e-Training Initiative and GOLC is an effort by the Office of Management & Budget and the U.S. Office of Personnel Management to simplify and unify etraining services across federal government and is one of 24 egovernment initiatives that support President Bush's Management Agenda.
GeoMaestro is an Internet-hosted human capital management and development platform that enables organizations to capture, create, manage, and share knowledge to improve workforce productivity, accelerate critical business processes, and drive organizational performance. The system centralizes and automates the learning management process, making the administration of enterprise learning and development both effective and efficient. In addition to the GeoMaestro learning management system (LMS), NRC will deploy GeoLearning's MyPlan module to track and manage individual employee development plans, and its Web-based Class & Event Scheduler to administer traditional classroom training. GeoLearning will also provide Internet hosting, security, and maintenance services for the initiative, as well as 24x7 Help Desk support for NRC employees and administrators.
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is an independent agency established by the Energy Reorganization Act of 1974 to regulate civilian use of nuclear materials. The agency's primary mission is to protect the public health and safety, as well as the environment from the effects of radiation from nuclear reactors, materials, and waste facilities. The NRC also promotes the common defense and security through the regulation of nuclear materials and facilities. Its responsibilities include the regulation of commercial nuclear power reactors; non-power research, test and training reactors; fuel cycle facilities; medical, academic and industrial uses of nuclear materials; and the transport, storage, and disposal of nuclear materials and waste.
