Software is a rapidly evolving industry. Innovations and new tools are introduced at an ever-increasing pace. As a software implementation partner, staying relevant and helpful requires a team with exceptional expertise. It also requires an intentional and innovative emphasis on continuous learning.

Canidium's Learning Program Management Office (LPMO) stands out as a trailblazing example, as they are redefining the industry's definition of what it means to have a robust training program.

That wasn't the conversation. My sole focus was building a training program for our employees, and it has been to this day. That is an uncommon commitment to creating an expertly trained team."
