Not only does it save time but it reaches to a bigger number of staff and professionals. Also it has provided the convenience of utilizing the available programs at any time and place.

These web based training courses are accessible by both state level and local government professionals. Topics that E-learning offers are wide in range and cover basics as well as specialized areas. Areas covered include training on collection, handling and sorting of data. Special training for transferring data to archives is among the various advanced trainings that COSHRC offers through web learning.

The web based education has especially proved effective in the state of Oregon. In the state there are trainings available for Oregon County Government.
