LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - June 16, 2016) - Relias Learning, the leader in online training and compliance solutions in the North American healthcare market, announces the launch of Relias Learning (UK) at the NHS Confederation this week. The 15 year-old enterprise, part of international media, services and education company Bertelsmann (RTL Group, Penguin Random House, BMG, Arvato, Bertelsmann Printing Group), launches in the UK with a library of training courses developed in collaboration with UK clinical professionals.

"There is a critical need for high-quality, impactful, cost-effective eLearning in the UK right now. The Relias Learning system has a long track record of dramatically reducing training costs while increasing productivity and the quality of care," said Deanna Roepke, Managing Director of Relias Learning Ltd.
