Copenhagen (DK), June 2021 - RelyOn Nutec and Area9 have entered into a long-term strategic alliance to bring adaptive learning technology to the global energy sector. The aim is to cut training time; increase knowledge, confidence, and skills acquisition; and boost learning retention, thus increasing workforce competence. It is based upon an overall ambition to facilitate further reduction of serious incidents and reduce risk of errors across the energy sector, protecting people and the environment.
With the partnership, RelyOn Nutec becomes Area9's strategic partner, bringing the Area9 Rhapsode(TM) learning platform to the energy sector globally. In addition, the Area9 Rhapsode learning platform will form part of the backbone of RelyOn Nutec's digital learning services within traditional eLearning, adaptive learning, micro learning, as well as blended theoretical and practical training services.
Area9 Rhapsode is considered one of the most advanced learning platforms in the world. Its transformative, personalised, high-impact learning experience is built on 25 years of research and has proven its value, particularly across the healthcare and workforce education sectors.
Torben Harring, CEO of RelyOn Nutec, said, "During the last few years, we have acquired and further developed state-of-the-art applications to manage workforce compliance and competence, as well as digital procedures and permits to work for safety-critical industries. Area9's platform fits perfectly in our application portfolio and at the same time allows us to truly disrupt training and learning development across the sectors we serve."
He continued, "The agreement with Area9 will set us apart from any of our competitors - both traditional training organisations and born digital competitors. The Rhapsode platform is unique and a good fit in our digital growth aspirations; it helps position us as a tier 1 application platform and digital learning provider."
Khurram Jamil, President, Strategic Initiatives for Area9, added, "For more than two decades, we have demonstrated, with partners in the healthcare and educational sectors, how applying advanced learning technology rooted in a scientific approach can help humans perform at their best. It is key to addressing 'unconscious incompetence' - not knowing what you don't know - an awareness that can mean the difference between life and death. Now, this strategic partnership brings Area9's reliable technology, in combination with RelyOn Nutec's unique strengths, to the energy sector. We are excited to embark jointly on this journey."
