LMS Saba : “Our e‑learning course costs 8 times less for participants than a classroom course”

Jonathan Wanty

Olivi­er Querenet de Bre­ville, founder of EISF, a 100% dig­i­tal train­ing orga­ni­za­tion that pre­pares stu­dents for the CAP in Pas­try and Bak­ery, tells us about his entre­pre­neur­ial jour­ney that led him to cre­ate a train­ing orga­ni­za­tion that pro­vides only e‑learning cours­es. EISF has been work­ing with Sol­unea and the SABA Cloud solu­tion for 4 years now. This is an oppor­tu­ni­ty to review the dig­i­tal­iza­tion of his train­ing with him.

What is your background?

Orig­i­nal­ly I was a text­book pub­lish­er. And at some point I want­ed to move to the oth­er side and not make text­books any­more, but be able to design a set of edu­ca­tion­al resources to allow peo­ple to train them­selves. That’s how the idea of cre­at­ing a 100% dig­i­tal train­ing orga­ni­za­tion was born. More­over, in the pub­lish­ing field, I was con­front­ed with a lot of dis­rup­tion with the arrival of dig­i­tal tech­nol­o­gy in this tra­di­tion­al pro­fes­sion. I want­ed to take the oppo­site approach and become the one who dis­rupts the train­ing mar­ket, hence the cre­ation of EISF, an online train­ing orga­ni­za­tion that trains for the CAP in Pas­try and Bakery.

Tell us about your training center?

EISF opened in 2014 and we launched the train­ing plat­form in 2016. So there are two class­es of learn­ers who passed the CAP after the EISF train­ing. We have a 95% suc­cess rate, which is excel­lent for a dig­i­tal school. We can there­fore say that the chal­lenge of learn­ing a man­u­al trade at a dis­tance has been suc­cess­ful. In the long term, we are going to extend our train­ing cours­es for the CAP Pas­try and Bak­ery to oth­er coun­tries. We will there­fore offer train­ing in Eng­lish and Chi­nese to address the Amer­i­can and Chi­nese mar­kets. We main­ly train peo­ple who are still work­ing or who are reg­is­tered at the Pôle Emploi and who wish to start a pro­fes­sion­al reconversion.

Why did you choose to launch your e‑learning course?

Train­ing costs have increased con­sid­er­ably over the last 20 years and the objec­tive was to know if we could reduce these costs with dig­i­tal edu­ca­tion­al con­tent. In fact, this is the case since we pro­pose a train­ing that costs 8 times less than face-to-face train­ing. We real­ly want to make these two cours­es acces­si­ble to as many peo­ple as pos­si­ble. E‑learning was also the only solu­tion to inter­nal­ize the train­ing and keep the con­trol from end to end. Indeed, if we want­ed to train abroad, we had to train the learn­ers with dig­i­tal tools.

How did Solunea help you realize your project?

Sol­unea brought us two things:

  • The know-how on the inte­gra­tion of edu­ca­tion­al con­tent on a dig­i­tal plat­form. Sol­unea trained us in the tools for cre­at­ing dig­i­tal edu­ca­tion­al content.
  • Mas­tery of the SABA LMS plat­form, which allows us to dis­trib­ute our con­tent and mon­i­tor the edu­ca­tion­al activ­i­ty of our learners.

We gave Sol­unea the struc­ture of our learn­ing paths and Sol­unea inte­grat­ed them into the plat­form. The Saba Cloud LMS meets my needs per­fect­ly. Its great strength is the sta­bil­i­ty of the plat­form which works 24/7 and there are no break­downs. SABA’s reli­a­bil­i­ty and effi­cien­cy are the two main qual­i­ties that made us think about our choice of solu­tion. We have total con­trol in terms of tool admin­is­tra­tion and train­ing, but Sol­unea is always avail­able to accom­pa­ny us in our evolutions.

How is the online training going for your learners?

Learn­ers do not need to be train­ing experts to use the plat­form. What­ev­er the skill lev­el, every­thing is very intu­itive. We do reg­u­lar sat­is­fac­tion sur­veys because it is very impor­tant for us to improve our learn­er train­ing paths. Accord­ing to our sur­veys, our learn­ers are 90% sat­is­fied. The remain­ing 10% are main­ly peo­ple who have not nec­es­sar­i­ly under­stood the per­son­al com­mit­ment that online train­ing requires and who lack autonomy.
