Employee Training Plan - not just e-learning

Good morning everyone,

I'm in the process of trying to create a standard template that we can use at my site to create all new hire training plans. This is not e-learning specific - this is to encompass all required training activities. Currently we have a variety of plans created by each department and we are really lacking consistency. It's a challenge because our site consists of a wide variety of departments that have a lot of unique requirements. We are in a regulated industry, so it's important that our plans show objectives and evaluation of training effectivity. I'm looking at creating a matrix-style document in Word that each group can simply fill in when they bring on a new hire, but I keep running into road blocks, getting frustrated, and moving this project to the back-burner. It's time to face it head-on and finish it up! I would love to know if any of you have a template that you wouldn't mind describing or sharing.

Hi Laura,

Like you, I work in a heavily regulated industry like yourself.  My team is responsible for all aspects of training for staff along their career life cycle with my organization.  The attached image describes our methods, materials and outcomes in our program approach.

I have to echo your frustrations and concerns.  Sometimes the first step is the hardest.

Please feel free to reach out to me if you have deeper questions or need some specifics examples.
