A 2017 release from the Chartered Profesionals in Human Resources of Alberta notified members that;

1. "Many organizations have moved training from instructor-led to on-line in order to capitalize on the various benefits of web-based delivery, and training topics have also progressed from information/awareness training to regulatory required and risk management topics (e.g. harassment, health and safety training)."

2. "This change in delivery has resulted in many organizations losing the ability to prove both the identity of personnel taking the training and the ability to ensure the required participation. As studies demonstrate that the level of unethical behavior increases when learning is done on-line is it logical that the response of regulators has been to require confirmation of identity and participation. Investigation findings into situations of compromised on-line training processes have identified not only individual level impropriety, but also wide-spread commercial services that provide training completion services for compensation."

3. "Some organizations have already responded by not accepting online training for high – risk activities, while others have mandated the utilization of technology that verifies both the identity and the participation of personnel completing on-line training that is legally and/or operationally critical."

4. Technology exists that mitigates the issues facing comprimized training by verifying both the identity and participation of trainees. Recomendations as the use and application of such technlogy is accessable through the following link http://alertcast.tech/CPHR/TrainingIntegrity
