360training.com to Deliver Corporate Ethics and Compliance Training

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - October 26, 2007) - 360training.com, a global leader in workforce and compliance training solutions, announced today its entrance into the corporate ethics and compliance training arena.

To address the ongoing demand for quality corporate ethics training and compliance solutions, 360training will now offer its customers on-demand courses across key areas such as code of conduct, ethics, antitrust, the foreign corrupt practices act, and discrimination.

360training's newest library of training content is designed to support publicly traded companies in their efforts to keep widely distributed workforces informed and in compliance with legal obligations. In addition to legislation such as Sarbanes-Oxley, the 2005 U.S. Federal Sentencing Guidelines outline the attributes of an effective compliance and ethics program and allow the courts to levy more severe penalties against offending organizations.

Since 1997, 360training has specialized in delivering training to regulated industries including insurance, financial services, real estate, construction, manufacturing, healthcare and hospitality. Companies of all sizes have relied on 360training to fulfill mandatory certification, licensing and continuing education requirements.

"360training's decade long tenure of providing licensing, continuing education and certification solutions uniquely positions us to broaden our portfolio by including corporate ethics and compliance training," stated Ed Sattar, CEO of 360training. The newly expanded curricula will help support clients across the compliance spectrum addressing the critical areas of general ethics and compliance in addition to industry-specific compliance programs. 360training will provide turn-key hosted course access or licensing options to run content on a client's internal systems. Training content will be available in both character and romance language translations for all multinational clients.

"Diversifying into ethics and compliance is a natural move for us given our experience in serving regulated markets," said Charles Origer, Director of Business Development. "We already support the industries we serve with training driven by state and federal law and we understand very well how to assist our customers in minimizing their risk and exposure. This combination of domain expertise will be invaluable to our clients," added Origer.
