In the coming weeks, we will be saying farewell to our current training site, BoldGenius, to make room for an exciting new platform designed to increase your learning opportunities…introducing the BoldU learning portal!
BoldU works a little differently than its predecessor, but offers some great benefits to your company!
- It is an online, subscription-based service, which you can access from any device.
- A single subscription gives you access for an unlimited number of users. No extra charges to train new people or retrain existing staff.
- It’s easier to manage your company users. Just choose a Learning Manager, or Managers, to be the point person(s) for your organization, and they can assign registrations to anyone else in the company right on the portal.
- There are no expiration dates for learning while your subscription is active. Allow your staff to learn at their own pace without worrying about finishing by a specific deadline.
BoldU has four levels so you can tailor your subscription to best suits your needs:
Level 1 – The Bold Resource Center
This level is free to all registered users and is loaded with documents and YouTube tutorials about ManitouNEO, Alarm Handling, Data Entry and more. It also contains one e-learning course, BTT 100 – “Introduction to Manitou,” which is great training for new operators and can introduce Manitou to technicians and salespeople in your organization.
Level 2 – Self-Paced Learning
This level contains more online courses which go further in-depth about the features and functions of ManitouNEO. Each course contains micro-learning modules that quiz you along the way. After completing each course, students earn certificates to show course completion.
Level 3 – Professional Development
(Available in late Q1 ‘18) This level features instructor-led training courses that pair students with a Bold instructor for a series of pre-recorded course modules over a set period. Students interact with their instructor and fellow students, and complete assignments for the instructor’s review. This learning format features Bold’s popular CSM, MSM, Alarm Operator, Data Entry, and ManitouNEO Boot Camp courses, among others.
Level 4 – Advanced Instruction
(Available in Q3 ’18) Our top level pairs students with a Bold instructor for live online courses with advanced topics, including the Advanced ManitouNEO Database & Systems Administrator (AMDSA). This subscription also includes free admission for two registered users from your organization to attend up to two on-site courses each year at the Bold Training Lab in Colorado Springs (travel and lodging not included).
The BoldU Learning Portal will be available for registrations beginning February 15.
Customers currently utilizing a paid subscription to BoldGenius will be able to access that learning platform through the end of February. The subscription will then be transferred to BoldU. Your business development representative will contact you to assist with that transfer. If you are utilizing the free resource tools on BoldGenius, please register for BoldU before the end of February!
