GRC Solutions Compliance Training:
Salt® e-learning

Online compliance training for organisations of all sizes. AFIA Members can choose off the shelf or customise to their unique business needs.

No two organisations are the same so why should your training program be? AFIA Associate Member, GRC Solutions can customise e-learning, microlearning, blended learning and workshops for our members unique requirements and organisational structure in order to maximise relevance, engagement and efficiency.

GRC's Salt® courses and training products help learners attain competence quickly and effectively in their compliance and risk obligations, assisting members to:

  • meet reporting and monitoring obligations within respective licensing regimes
  • strengthen existing compliance programs in line with current and emerging regulator priorities
  • improve employee and manager competency to minimise the risk of breaches and organisational penalties
  • update training programs to maintain currency in an environment of rapid regulatory change.

Salt is a learning content management system that can be used to develop and deliver e-learning courses to match an employee’s knowledge. Prior learning is established through a preassessment which determines a learner’s knowledge gaps. Once complete, employees are presented with personalised training that discusses information they don’t yet know – not what they already do know. This adaptive function can be switched on or off, depending on what stage in the training cycle the organisation is. The choice is yours.

Mobile responsive

Courses automatically resize to any desktop, tablet or smartphone (web, iOS, Android).

Make quick edits

The light editing feature enables clients to apply small changes to content quickly, easily and cheaply.

Switch between languages

Learners can switch between different languages as they proceed through the training.

Benefits of Salt

Saves time

Learners can focus on their knowledge gaps and extend their learning, rather than revisit the same material year in, year out, saving the time and money it takes for staff to complete training.

Reduces staff pushback

Staff will complain about training that doesn’t account for what
they already know. Salt can
bypass content in which learners demonstrate proficiency.

Provides analytics

Managers can access a wide range of analytics and visualisations to identify what and how their staff learn, to each click and second.
