BlueVolt, the leading provider of online Learning Management Systems (LMS) for the manufacturing, construction and service industries recently delivered its one-millionth course.

David, an electrician from southern Illinois, enrolled in the millionth course on the award-winning Lutron Lighting Control Institute Online, powered by BlueVolt.

“Since launching BlueVolt, we’ve worked closely with our customers to create a comprehensive online learning platform specifically tailored to their unique needs,” said BlueVolt President and CEO Don Spear. “At our current rate of growth, we will deliver our next million courses even more quickly!  And, we will maintain our commitment to making the system easier and easier to use and administer.”

To celebrate the one-million-courses-delivered milestone, the elearning experts at BlueVolt will share their elearning expertise via Twitter. Using the handle @BlueVolt and hashtag #elearningtip, BlueVolt will tweet one elearning tip each day in September.

Since 2002, BlueVolt has provided online training customized for the unique needs of electricians and other skilled professionals. Today, the company delivers courses designed for users throughout entire vertical channels — especially manufacturers, distributors, sales staff, installers and customers in building and construction. BlueVolt provides comprehensive and convenient learning solutions that allow companies to deliver training, verify knowledge and report results all in one place.

Some courses also offer dollar-for-dollar rewards, called $BlueBucks, to incent learners and increase course enrollments up to ten times. Learners can redeem $BlueBucks for virtual gift cards at hundreds of merchants nationwide, future elearning courses or donate them to charity. To date, BlueVolt has awarded more than 1.6 million $BlueBucks.
