Welcome to our E-learning Program

Introduction - Cost-Free, Accessible, Relevant training for POOL/PACT members.

A growing number of employers are turning to online employee training for a hands-on, interactive way for employees to learn. More economical in both time and money than conventional training, this form of training has become more and more popular as Internet technology has improved and Web access has become near ubiquitous.

The American Society for Training and Development (ASTD) estimates that nearly one-third of learning content made available is in the form of E-learning.

Web-based training has several advantages. Online training allows employees to learn at their own pace and at a time that's convenient for them. And, no matter which shift an employee works, training is always available anywhere there is an Internet connection, which makes these programs effective for training across multiple locations.

Because all the trainees will use the same program, training materials are standardized. The materials are also easy to update.


  • Torch enables POOL/PACT members to administer every aspect of users registered in the system, from account creation to changing passwords and managing course learning tracks.
  • Member Administrators are able to create departments for their organization, assign employees and supervisors to those departments and then create custom course tracks for each department.
  • Department Supervisors can monitor their employees development and achievements in real time.
  • Using Torch allows you to track not only learning courses, but offline instructor-led training, on-the-job training and virtual seminars. Torch enables you to keep track of all your compliance based training.
  • Torch includes a number of standard reports. The system also includes a custom report builder tool.
