The Redwoods Institute is Moving

On October 31, The Redwoods Institute launched on a new Learning Management System—Cornerstone-on-Demand.

This new system will begin our move from completion training (focused on compliance) to comprehension training (focused on prevention).

Currently, many staff take online trainings annually. Yet learning is more than a one-time event. Training is more than a certificate in a folder. And instruction is more than clicking a mouse. Our vision is one of curriculum-based learning in which training is seen as an ongoing process, and safety is considered a constant priority. Our new system is moving us one step closer to that.

Specifically, the move will mean significant improvements in two main areas—automation and experience.


Our goal is to minimize or remove the manual processes for your administrators. Here are just a few examples of what's to come:

  • Customize emails to notify employees of training requirements
  • Assign courses by program area, location, or position
  • Schedule training reports to be sent to you, or your Human Resource Information System (HRIS)
  • Mass-upload a list of new users via Microsoft Excel


From a new design aesthetic to recommended trainings, the new LMS system will be designed to enhance the user experience for trainees and administrators alike.

  • Upload CPR, First Aid, Lifeguard and other certifications
  • Rate trainings on a 5-star rating scale
  • Find additional trainings and resources related to your program
  • Discuss training and learning with other users
