Online training - Learning Management System (LMS)

We provide an online learning portal, the Learning Management System (LMS) to all registered users of the platform.

The LMS provides the following benefits:

For learners:

  • Learners have the flexibility to undertake the training at their own desks.
  • The training is always available so learners can undertake the training when it suits them and refresh their knowledge at any time.
  • The training modules are tailored for the learner based on their role.
  • Visual indicators instantly show the learner the progress of their own learning.

For administrators in organisations:

  • Organisations can measure the online learning that their internal teams have undertaken.
  • Organisations can monitor progress of their internal teams and track passed/failed results of the consolidation tests to confirm their level of understanding.
  • Reports at an organisation level can be created on the LMS and exported to Excel or PDF output.

Learning Management System (LMS) – Minimum Training Requirements

Based on market feedback, we recommend a minimum amount of training to use the key areas of the platform. This is not the time required to go through all the training available, but the minimum required.

In-house demonstrations

These are high level one hour sessions where a PPL Relationship Manager will show you the end-to-end process of placing an open market risk via PPL in your offices (min. 10 users). These sessions are available to brokers and underwriters and are aimed at new users or those who need a recap on the Platform and its benefits.  Please note that an In-house Demo should not replace the classroom training but is there to provide an overview of the platform.
