MINNEAPOLIS, Sept. 29, 2006 — Training Magazine has named Capella University, an accredited online university and a leader in online education, its Editor’s Pick for Best Compliance Training for its Ethic Education training program for employees. The award will be presented to Capella at the Training Solutions Conference in Denver from October 23 -25.  “Ethics Education is a training program that builds upon Capella’s long history of acting ethically and the high value the university places on honesty, fair, and ethical business practices,” said Tom Godfrey, a course developer at Capella. “Ethics Education not only teaches Capella policies, but also tests employees on their ability to appropriately apply these ethical policies in common workplace situations.” 

Capella’s new Ethics Education initiative uses simulations, self-paced tutorials, and assessments to ensure employees fully understand how Capella’s policies and procedures apply to their work experience. Capella has committed to training every employee on its corporate compliance program.  More than 120 companies—such as Boeing, Johnson & Johnson, Farmers Insurance, and Xerox—have selected Capella University as an education provider and offer tuition discounts and reimbursement for their employees.
