Liebherr Mining Training System Recognized as a 2013 Computerworld Honors Laureate


The Liebherr Mining Training System (LMTS) has been named as a 2013 honors laureate by the Computerworld Honors Program. The annual award honors visionary applications of information technology promoting positive social, economic and educational change.

This honor was given in the category of economic development, and came as a result of Liebherr Mining's initiative to provide diverse technical training to its workforce worldwide, including remote areas such as Chile, Ghana and Indonesia. Among other companies acknowledged in this category were Hewlett-Packard, Savi Technology, and Verizon Wireless.

This accolade comes just a few months after Liebherr Mining received the Transformative Learning Award at the Saba Global summit.

In 2009, the Mining division employed the Liebherr Mining Training System to begin its eLearning campaign. This campaign incorporates online, classroom, and factory-specific sessions into its technical and operational training methodology. As a result of the cooperation of both Liebherr Mining factories in Newport News, VA (USA) and in Colmar (France), and all affiliate Mining companies, the LMTS was able to successfully shift from primarily hands-on training to a blended online, in-class, and on-site approach.

The laureates were recognized at the Computerworld Honors Laureate Ceremony and Awards Gala at the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium in Washington D.C. (USA). During this ceremony, honorees were presented with a medallion inscribed with the Program's mission, "A Search for New Heroes." For the past 25 years, the Computerworld Honors Program has had the privilege of celebrating innovative IT achievements.
