RBA e-Learning Academy

The RBA e-Learning Academy provides RFI members with best-in-class online trainings on a range of sustainability topics from CSR program management to methods to combat trafficked and forced labor in the supply chain. With over 80 training modules, the RBA eLearning Academy allows learners to progress through training modules at their own pace on their own computer. The RBA frequently reviews internal and external sources for new training materials, and occasionally commissions custom training modules.

The RBA e-Learning Academy is available to RFI members. The eLearning Academy also offers training resources about RBA tools, such as RBA-Online and the Validated Assessment Process. One of the most popular modules is the RBA’s online Code of Conduct course, which can also be made available outside the Learning Academy. Members can find the latest Course Descriptions document in the RBA Service Portal under the Training folder or can email to request a copy.

We frequently add trainings – please contact us with questions or contributions for our eLearning Academy.
