Online Training through NOTES Platform

Today’s changing demands and industry expectations require Brands and Retailers to communicate compliance requirements effectively and quickly to all stakeholders of their global supply chain.

Classroom training has been the classical/traditional form to impart this training. But as organizations expand operations to multiple locations and as supply chains get more and more fragmented across diverse geographical locations, such training methods are no longer feasible or have many limitations.

NimkarTek offers ONLINE training services through our unique, online portal called ‘NOTES’. We have ready training modules on a variety of topics related to Chemicals Management and Restricted Substances. Each training module is followed by an Online Exam that evaluates the understanding of the learner. You can win a ‘Certificate of Achievement’ on successful completion of the exam.

These can be easily accessed by clicking on – notes.nimkartek.com
