There was no consistency and the business was fragment admits Jean-François Goulay staff development manager of the human resources department of IFRC. Thus at the end of 2008 it was decided to identify a centraliz Learning Management system, with the aim of expanding training opportunities and at the same time recovering homogeneity .
