  • JLG Industries, an OshKosh Company, the world’s leading designer and manufacturer of lift and access equipment, has engaged thousands of learners by upgrading to a scalable, flexible Totara Learn solution.

JLG Industries decided to upgrade from their previous Moodle platform to Totara Learn, following their Totara Partner's advice that it would better support their growing needs. Totara Learn was chosen as it could accommodate a variety of different training scenarios for a large and diverse audience, as well as being a system with enterprise-level scalability for future expansion.

At the ATD International Conference and Exhibition on 21st May in Washington, DC, JLG Industries held a live case study session, which demonstrated how they redesigned the JLG learning experience, with custom plugins developed to enhance and extend Totara Learn’s functionality while maintaining an easy path for future updates to the system.

From a single interface, JLG’s learners can search for online videos, classroom training, e-learning and more, making for a much more intuitive user experience. They also set up a system to auto-enroll and track learners in a series of interrelated training activities leading to an overarching certification, with an additional integration created to allow learners to purchase printed ID cards for the certifications earned on the site.

The main benefits of migrating to Totara Learn are that JLG Industries now has a learning platform that will support its future growth, increased reporting capability for better visibility of learner and organisational progress, more powerful user management tools and the incorporation of multiple search pages into a single interface for all learning content, creating a more cohesive, efficient solution.

Darren LaRue, Product Training Specialist, Instructional Technologies at JLG Industries, said: “JLG has enjoyed a successful partnership with our Totara Partner for many years. The unique nature of our business has presented many difficult challenges, but through dedication and innovation, we have been able to solve those challenges together. With the recent transition of our learning management systems to Totara Learn, we can now offer new features and functionality to our customers that were not available before, and we look forward to what new possibilities this relationship will bring.”
