Coronavirus: Changing The Way We Train

New Challenges

The world today is facing unprecedented challenges in response to the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus pandemic (declared by the World Health Organization on 3/11/20). As a result, many companies are being pressed to find new ways to work remotely and help in their own way to contain the virus.

Some of these efforts include setting up committees to plan for the contingencies that may arise from the impact of the virus, all the way down to requesting designated staff to work from home in an effort to minimize the spread of the disease.

“We quickly saw a level of urgency in terms of support occurring internally with many of our clients, and recognized there was a simple way to help them,” said Billy Mack, President of Accelerant Solutions. “Therefore, we engaged our partners at Tecnatom USA to ramp up efforts to help deploy advanced technical learning at a distance inside our SOULTM (Smart Open Universe of Learning) platform.”

With headquarters centered in Madrid, Spain, Tecnatom is at the heart of the COVID-19 outbreak now taking place in Europe. Therefore, Tecnatom is committed to delivering an outstanding service both at home and abroad as they serve Accelerant’s existing customers.

In Spain, Tecnatom operates eight training centers serving eight nuclear power plants that make up the Spanish fleet. Face-to-face classes were suspended per government direction to combat the COVID-19 virus. Thanks to SOULTM, Tecnatom instructors are delivering classes remotely to students, some at stations, others at home. As a result, this is helping to avoid the negative impacts in initial and continuous training programs.

“At Tecnatom we are striving to improve the lives of our clients and partners so working remotely in this challenging time becomes more of a reality.” stated Jose Delgado, Operations and Training Services Director at Tecnatom.

With new upgrades to the SOULTM platform and advanced distance learning features at the ready, Tecnatom is eager to help.

Our Staff

As consultants and experts in performance improvement, human beings are the core of our business. Hence, our core business does not involve software, processes, or finances. Most importantly, the heart of Accelerant is the quality of life we continue to improve upon in both the lives of our consultants, clients, and our employees. And the communication and action taken by the team reflects this philosophy.

“The most important thing to us is our quality of life. Let’s find ways to improve it every day,” said Billy Mack on a team conference call.

“The solutions we have already developed with Tecnatom have a broad range of application in their approach to defeating the virus,” stated Mike Cadden, COO of Accelerant Solutions. “We’re eager to support all of the new challenges facing the world with this fight underway.”

Internally we continue to strive for safety at home and in our offices. Furthermore, safety moments are conducted during meetings and other communications to remind one another of the importance of keeping a safe social distance and maintaining personal hygiene (washing hands thoroughly and often).
