Based in Sarnia, Ontario, we use a blend of online and traditional workshop training solutions to meet the individual needs of our clients.

E-Learning for Personal Development
On a personal level, continuous learning is about the constant expansion of skills through education and experience. As life changes, our best response is to be prepared with knowledge and a passion for life-long learning.
E-Learning for Groups and Organizations
On a professional level, continuous learning is about further expanding our skill-sets in response to our changing environment. Embracing a culture of “investing in people” has played a major role in companies who invest in training their employees for a new skill rather than hiring new people for the desired skill. This helps to prevent excessive turnover, which not only has costs in terms of dollars but also in company morale. Given the current business environment, organizations must be able to learn continuously in order to deal with changes and, in the end, to increase their profitability.
Project Services Training
Courses prepared by Pathway Associates are delivered by practicing project control professionals. Pathway Associates offers instruction in current techniques as proven effective in the field. From prepackaged courses to custom designed training, Pathway Associates’ training modules are an effective way to upgrade the current skill sets of your employees and positively impact the bottom line. Technical training is delivered in an in-person, hands-on, workshop environment.
E-learning Courses for Personal and Professional Development
At Pathway Associates, we understand that time spent on training is an investment in knowledge, skills and abilities of an individual or team. The courses listed on this page are designed to help people to better understand a variety of topics. All courses are online and can be accessed as the learner’s schedule will allow.
Benefits of Learning Online
Improved training costs: Producing learning content is time consuming whether it’s online or not. You also have savings through decreased travel, reduced material, and improved performance.
Increased productivity: Because e-learning is not bound by geography or time, you can control training’s impact on production by training people during down times.
Standardization: You may have a great facilitator, but that’s no guarantee that the courses are presented the same across sessions. E-learning allows you to create a standardized process and consistency in the delivery of content. It also compresses delivery time.
Real-time access: Live learning events require that those who participate align their schedules to the training calendar. E-learning eliminates this because the course can be accessed anytime, anywhere.
Freedom to fail: Let’s face it, real learning requires some failure. But no one likes to fail in a classroom full of other people. E-learning lets you fail without fear.
Employer of choice: People want opportunities to grow. E-learning courses allow them to explore other opportunities in the organization. During downtime, it would be great to spend fifteen minutes learning to better manage meetings or improve working with peers. Offering these opportunities to learn makes you a place people want to stay.
