I am often asked whether or not it is important to provide employees with printed certificates once they complete their training. As a result, I want to use this post to discuss the importance of creating a training portfolio for your employees.
Building a Training Portfolio
Every time your employees complete a step in their training plan or make an advance in competency, it should be documented and retained by the employee. We suggest that you create a personalized binder that the employee can use to store items such as training certificates, worksheets, training aides, photographs, and documents. The intent is to create a personal portfolio which the employee can use to demonstrate not only what they learned, but what they have applied.
