GP and Oracle launch fully hosted training ‘portal’ for power plant facilities

COLUMBIA, Md., April 11, 2002 — General Physics Corp. (GP), a wholly owned subsidiary of GP Strategies Corp., has entered into an agreement with Oracle iLearning to provide power plant facilities access to technical training courses over the Internet.

The agreement will utilize the synergies of the two companies to provide a fully hosted “portal” that provides top quality training courses to power generation facilities of every type and size. The system allows your Company to assign, evaluate, and track both “knowledge-based” and “hands-on” qualification tasks, while permitting supervisors to easily manage and track the success of their employees.

Courses cover areas in Plant Operations, Mechanical Maintenance, I&C, Electrical Maintenance, Combined Cycle Fundamentals, OSHA, and Environmental Compliance.

Russ Garrity, Director of GP Energy Services stated, “Establishing this portal expands our ability to deliver over 1,400 technical training lessons to energy companies of all sizes. Web-based courses are extremely popular because they can be accessed quickly, easily, and it is a cost-effective approach for training a dispersed workforce.”
