“Through our avatar-based AI training, we’ve prepared U.S. overseas personnel deploying to 80 countries with crucial language skills and cultural competence in under 45 hours,” said Lewis Johnson, Alelo CEO. “We’re now applying the same fast and cost-effective training methods to close the skills gap for low-income, minority, and immigrant populations.”
Alelo’s exclusive avatar-based training AI technology offers two initial paths forward for under-resourced workers.
First, Alelo’s fast and cost-effective skills development is uniquely suited to meet the surging demand for training public health personnel created by the COVID-19 crisis. Second, Alelo’s award-winning Enskill® English training technology can improve the performance, career advancement, and safety of entry-level manufacturing workers with English as a second language.
