International Sign Association Launches Online Learning Tool

The International Sign Association has released a new online learning tool to help sign companies implement relevant training at convenient times.

The first two courses in the online ISA Sign Academy are available now and training is open to ISA members and non-members. Each course will take about 90 minutes to complete, including interactive exercises to ensure comprehension. Participants may go through each of the course’s learning modules at different times if they desire.

“The Sign Installer’s Guide: Wall Signs” teaches the basics of wall sign installation, including sign placement options; pattern options and examples; wall types and surfaces; common fastener types and proper use; and basic sign types and examples.

“The Sign Installer’s Guide: Safety Course” will help participants learn proper use of safety harnesses and equipment; best practices for avoiding electrocution; ladder and scaffold safety; and general safety skills.

“Our online learning is designed to address current issues that our sign companies face,” said Matthew Rumbaugh, ISA director of education. “Many businesses find that hiring qualified employees is increasingly difficult, and therefore must train new hires. These courses provide a tremendous learning opportunity for educating or cross training, or a refresher course for more experienced employees.”

ISA has spent the last year developing online learning, ensuring that the technical aspects are easy to use, while tapping industry experts to contribute content. Other courses will be available in the coming weeks.

“Education has always been an important element of the services ISA offers to its members and to the larger sign industry,” said Lori Anderson, ISA president and CEO. “By adding online learning capabilities to our in-person education and webinars, we have made training available to sign companies around the world, when and how they need it.”
