Trainor signs agreement with UL Solutions to provide eLearning training courses for working in hazardous environments

UL Solutions adds Norwegian high-end eLearning courses to its portfolio of Ex safety training. – “A huge acknowledgment,” said CCO Morten Aasen, as Trainor’s eLearning courses for Ex training are to be available globally through the UL Solutions virtual training website.

Signed agreement

A reseller agreement was signed between Trainor and UL Solutions, a global leader in applied safety science, earlier this year to leverage Trainor’s digital learning courses for Ex training.

- Occupational safety in hazardous locations is a must. This agreement between UL Solutions and Trainor aims to support those who work in potentially explosive atmospheres and with related equipment by offering high-quality, up-to-date training to help them prepare for this work, said Eduardo Galera, product manager at UL Solutions.

Premium quality

Trainor eLearning is developed in Unreal Engine, one of the world leading game engines and real-time 3D creation tools.

– Quality, high learning outcomes and an uncompromising commitment to safety is our main motivation, explains Morten Aasen, and adds that Trainor’s vision is to set a new standard for safety training. A vision they approach by raising the quality level considerably in the training offer for an industry where safety is crucial and developing courses that stand out from traditional eLearning in terms of course methodology, method of communication, didactics, and use of technology.

Going global

Trainor Group is the Nordic leading provider of electrical safety and Ex safety training, with over 30 years of experience. Being pioneers in digital learning solutions by launching their first computer-based training in 1996, the company has attracted not only professionals within the subject field of electrical safety, regulations and standards and Ex safety, but also educators, system developers, game designers and filmmakers devoted to creating immense digital learning solutions.

– Subject expertise being set into life in a game engine that allows us to recreate any work situation, using cinematic techniques and storytelling to create engaging, relevant, and understandable courses is a key to our success, explains Morten Aasen. Having already earned their status as the leading in the Nordics, the group aims to grow geographically.

– Collaborating with UL Solutions is a huge step toward being a significant global provider of Ex safety training, says Morten Aasen.
