Overview of UL’s training and knowledge solutions
In today’s world, it is becoming increasingly difficult to design, build, and globally deploy safe and sustainable products. Regulatory and compliance requirements continually shift as new safety systems emerge and evolve, product recalls and liabilities pose a risk to a company’s reputation, and workforce demographics change at an unprecedented rate. Our Knowledge Solutions provide you with the education resources you need to develop, manufacture, install and deploy safer products throughout the global marketplace.
Put this knowledge to work within your own businesses to demonstrate your commitment to safety, advance your approach to risk management and risk prevention, keep pace with new technologies and regulations, and ultimately improve speed to market.
Industry and product training/education
We combine dynamic learning with practical application and demonstration, enabling learners within a specific field to effectively interpret, apply and demonstrate knowledge. A blended training approach consisting of e-learning, instructor-led workshops, webinars, hands-on application, white papers and articles is used to deliver our comprehensive educational curriculum of more than 700 courses across a wide spectrum of focus areas, such as local and harmonized product standards, global market access, and hazard-based safety engineering. Our global training programs are available in multiple languages and can be tailored based on the specific needs of an organization or market.
Upon completion of industry or product training, students receive a certificate of completion and continuing education units, when applicable.
Knowledge powered solutions to drive business success
We offer mastery-level courses to enable learners to establish their in-depth competency in a specific designation or field of endeavor. Working with individuals or companies, we define the parameters for mastery programs, which could include product design, test laboratory setup, product installation, or other industry-, product- or business-driven concentrations. At this level, course learnings are delivered as a blended solution and composed of on-the-job training and performance measurement interviews, assessments and exams. Individuals who establish mastery through intensive hands-on experience, study and knowledge tests will be eligible to become a UL Certified professional in their area of expertise.
Compliance and regulations
Regulatory and Compliance Essentials is a first-of-its-kind e-learning suite that provides standardized education on critical safety and regulatory requirements related to products. Our course offerings are intended to educate anyone involved in the product development process to address skill gaps and systematically upgrade organizational knowledge. The program includes topics across a spectrum of focus areas, including hazard-based safety engineering, global market access, code compliance, conformity assessment, access to target markets (including China, Korea, India, Europe and South America), Lean Six Sigma, ENERGY STAR® and more. Regulatory and Compliance Essentials is available for individual access or companywide subscription that allows all users to access the entire suite, and coursework is eligible for obtaining continuing education units (CEUs) upon completion. Please verify applicability with your professional board or local jurisdiction.
Training needs assessment
In every business, success is ultimately driven by the skills and knowledge of employees. We conduct training needs assessments identifying knowledge and/or skill gaps and opportunities for individuals, teams and organizations to help create a customized training roadmap designed to improve performance, increase speed to market, and enhance product safety and quality.
