"The content on J. J. Keller Training On Demand is thorough, relevant, and presented in a manner that employees can comprehend. The platform is extremely user friendly, and the courses can be done at our employees' convenience. Most of our employees work off-site and have fluctuating schedules so it is difficult to schedule a specific time and date for training. With Training On Demand, they can stop the course if they need to and pick back up later. I would absolutely recommend Training On Demand."
