Founded in 2002, Silverchair Learning Systems is a subsidiary of Relias Learning, LLC and provides interactive online education for nurses and others who provide care to the elderly. Care of the cognitively impaired, lifting and transfers, and pain management are among the courses available to direct care providers. Silverchair Learning Systems also offers courses, including corporate compliance and emergency preparedness, for those managing senior care facilities. Additionally, it provides an employee feedback system, tracks mandatory employee training and offers regulatory compliance reporting.
Silverchair Learning Systems works with a variety of state and national associations and subject matter experts to create and maintain up-to-date course content and offers its courses on the Essential Learning learning management system. This system allows senior care facilities to enroll nurses and other staff members in courses and to identify specific training plans for individual employees or staff teams. Organizations enrolled in Silverchair Learning Systems can also create and offer agency-specific training, test on-the-job skills and share organizational documents with staff.
A variety of Silverchair sample courses are available to the public via their website at Training.SilverChairLearning.com. These free sample courses do require registration, however, they create no obligation to continue with the program or make any purchases. Additionally, because they are samples, they do not qualify for continuing education credits.
