GSSA ECS Group is expanding its in-house training programme with the addition of two new courses.

The France-headquartered firm said that it would add a dangerous goods transportation overview course, and an in-depth sustainability module.

The sustainability module is due to be launched in the first quarter of the year and will be made mandatory, given that sustainability is a core focus for the business.

The company launched its ‘Discovery’ in-house training programme in September 2020.

It hosts courses that have been developed in-house to introduce users to ECS Group’s Quantum and Apollo digital solutions, and partner technologies such as SkyPallet or CargoSpot.

Onboarding courses are available for team members who are new to the airfreight industry, as well as role-related training plans for the different job functions within ECS Group, such as sales, customer service, or finance.

Cedric Millet, chief strategy and digital officer of ECS Group, said: “Most of the courses available on Discovery have been created by ECS Group employees for ECS Group employees.”

He added: “Internally produced training courses ensure a much more efficient knowledge transfer because they are directly based on our ECS Group business processes, and are thus more specifically relevant and tangible.”

The average duration of a course module is one hour, and participants are required to pass a test at the end of each module, to allow them to proceed with the next one.
