The deployment of GeoLearning's hosted LMS solution will provide USPTO employees with access to career development resources, including more than 50 elearning courses on business skills, information security, desktop computer applications, and IT certifications. The GeoMaestro LMS offers registration, tracking, and reporting functionality for the delivery and strategic management of learning, development, and knowledge acquisition.
