McDonald's does offer online training and education for its employees through the SabaNow LMS software. The training portal for McDonald's employees is called AccessMCD. Saba is a company that provides a learning management system (LMS) platform and other types of software to many companies in different sectors, including manufacturing, high-tech, healthcare and energy, as noted by the Saba website.
In order to access the training portal, McDonald's crew employees can use their Facebook accounts or different email accounts, such as Google, Yahoo or Windows Live. However, office, management and corporate staff require a McDonald's ID that includes a username and password.
McDonald's employees can go to the training portal to take different online classes. For example, new hires can learn about food preparation and basic restaurant practices. There are also online retraining courses for current employees.
