What is eLearning?
eLearning is a mature, $16 Billion industry in North America. However, eLearning programs have typically only been available to large businesses and government organizations. The Chamber eLearning Centre has created a compelling program that brings these world class business skills and technical courses to small and medium sized local businesses.
“The Chamber eLearning Centre promises to increase the value proposition of the chamber network by giving our business members access to training at a very low cost,” explains Scott McCammon, Vice President, Communications and Stakeholder Relations of the Ontario Chamber of Commerce. “These state-of-the-art eLearning opportunities will also help our member businesses gain a competitive edge through the attraction and retention of quality staff.”

Businesses can meet immediate training needs and also develop long term training strategies. Further to this, Chamber members will receive a 15% discount on the fees normally associated to the program.
