GS1 Australia has been selected as a finalist for the 2012 Training, Education & Development Award, which will be presented to the company or institution that "best demonstrates a significant achievement in aspects such as recruitment process, training, HR Systems, formal education and development programs which is both relevant to and promotes the Supply Chain and Logistics Industry."
GS1 Australia is a not-for-profit organisation that locally administers the global multi-industry system of identification and communication for products, services, assets and locations - the GS1 System. This system is used by millions of businesses in more than 180 countries to identify and communicate about products they are trading.
A large part of the business of GS1 Australia, then, is educating manufacturers and importers in how to use the GS1 System to its full capabilities. To this end, the organisation offers four flexible training modes, designed to make learning the GS1 System convenient for even the busiest of schedules.
Participants can select from:
- classroom training sessions
- web-interactive training / webinars
- GS1 MasterClass sessions; and
- online courses.
Adding to the flexibility of GS1 training, the organisation's online training courses are provided via an online training tool, GS1 Online Training, which allows users to take a series of courses on essential supply chain concepts study anywhere and at their own pace, 24 hours per day, seven days a week.
Winners of the 2012 Australian Supply Chain and Logistics Awards will be announced at a gala dinner on Thursday 8th November at the Brisbane Convention Centre, Southbank.
