General Physics Corporation Passes 30,000 User Seats for GPiLEARN™ Power Plant Training
Elkridge, MD. May 25, 2010 – Global performance improvement solutions provider General Physics Corporation (GP), a subsidiary of GP Strategies Corporation (NYSE: GPX), announced that it has crossed the 30,000 “seat” threshold with power plant customers using the GPiLEARN™ web-based training portal serving both domestic and 62 international power industry clients in 39 countries. GPiLEARN™ is now used by more than 235 power generation industry companies.
The GPiLEARN web-based training portal provides customizable access to thousands of lessons and exams for the energy industry, utilizing an extensive library of content that’s continually reviewed and updated.
Joe Nasal, the Senior Vice President in charge of GP’s Energy Services group, stated, “Our U.S. power plant customers are facing two near-term critical challenges – replacing their aging workforce and preparing for new laws that will cap emissions. The combination of preparing a new generation of power plant workers along with the reputed creation of tens of thousands of new jobs if legislation now pending in Congress becomes law, will place an unprecedented burden on the industry to expand and train their workforces. Our GPiLEARN products and experienced energy training professionals are particularly well positioned to support demand for workforce training. In addition, requiring more efficient, lower emission power plants should mean cleaner, lower cost energy to the consumer, something we all want and need. GP’s EtaPRO technology provides power producers with a state-of-the-art product that guides plant operators and managers in the operation of their plants for greater efficiency. We are confident that our technologies are the best in the world, and we are prepared to help our customers meet their challenges of preparing the next generation workforce and maximizing efficiency while minimizing emissions.”
