Knowledge is Golden: Milestone Learning & Performance Program Awarded for Excellence

Milestone partners and customers get rich with expertise in XProtect video management software. The courses provide flexible, role and skill-based education, training and certification for best practice with the technology.

Milestone Systems has won the Brandon Hall Group gold award for excellence called the “Best Advance in Creating an Extended Enterprise Learning Program”. The Learning & Performance Program for the Milestone community of system integrators and customers has continued to innovate over the years. Previously, in October 2017, Milestone received two silver awards from Brandon Hall Group, including “Best Certification Program.”

“The HCM Excellence Awards recognize programs that measurably benefit organizations,” said Mike Cooke, Brandon Hall Group CEO. “Because we focus on measurable benefits, our awards program is universally recognized and highly prestigious.”

Award entries were evaluated by a panel of independent, veteran, industry experts, Brandon Hall Group analysts and executives. They base their choices on the following criteria: fit the need, design of the program, functionality, innovation and overall measurable results.

“Milestone Learning & Performance has seen widespread partner engagement and we are delighted to receive this award as recognition for our program from learning experts as well – especially considering the rigorous judging process. This award validates the approach we have taken to focus our training and certification assessments around job competencies and the ability to perform in the field,” said Evan Stuckless, Manager of Learning & Performance.

The Learning & Performance Program at Milestone has been expanded greatly over the years. Training activities have moved beyond the classroom, and the certification assessments are focused on proving the skills needed by job roles for designing, installing, configuring, operating, and maintaining Milestone XProtect video management software.

Courses are available online, in the form of individual, self-paced eLearning modules, as YouTube tutorials, or in traditional classroom settings led by an expert instructor and delivered in-person at locations throughout the world. Online certification assessments can be used to identify knowledge gaps and when passed successfully, confirm expertise with Milestone products.

“The Learning & Performance team has developed a world-class program that provides our partners flexible options to develop their skills. The certification program helps to differentiate them in the market as proven experts in designing, installing, and configuring Milestone solutions. In the end, everyone benefits from a highly skilled channel,” said Stuckless. “Our customers win with better designed solutions. Our partners win by quicker installations improving profitability on each job. And we all win with optimal operations.”
