Mercury University will soon offer an online training program for Mercury Marine’s dealer and OEM partners.

Mercury University provides technical and non-technical training to more than 5,000 dealers and partners.

Beginning in late summer, those dealers and partners in the U.S. and Canada can complete training courses and register for classroom courses online at any time.

When a dealer or partner completes an online course, they will have the option to take an online test. The results of the test are immediately available to the user and are recorded in that individual’s learning history, which is viewable by the individual and his or her supervisor.

“Our dealers are critical to our success,” said Brad Weber, Mercury’s director of field service development and operations, in a statement. “When they voiced a need for an online learning system, we listened and made the required investment.

“The ability to complete online courses and tests will be of great benefit to the dealer,” Weber continued. “No longer are they limited to the business hours of Mercury University. Management at the dealerships can be much more informed and reactive to the learning needs of their employees.”

Mercury selected Plateau Systems, a leading provider of talent management software, content and services, to deliver and host Mercury’s learning-management system. Mercury University will use Plateau’s iContent solution to manage, deliver and track all its training content across its partners and dealer ecosystem.
