METR Overview

Managing Employee Training Records (METR), is a web-based software program that allows agencies to create, store and access their sworn and civilian employee training records in one single, comprehensive application. Highly user-friendly, METR enables Training Managers to complete a myriad of activities including training class and test design, assignment of class attendees, open enrollment registrations, customization of exams and comprehensives with an automatic grading feature, attendance checks, training records audits, file attachments to employee profiles and certification renewal reminders. Additionally, METR communicates directly with LEFTA Systems’ Field Training application (LEFTA) and combined, these programs enable an agency to track an employee’s training documents from FTO training until retirement or separation.

Employees and managers receive class registration notification emails, as well as, alerts when required training, videos or bulletins are past due or when a mandated class is about to expire. Employees are also able to submit training requests via chain of command, removing the need to submit or store paper requests. Additionally, at the discretion of the agency, employees can access and view their personal profiles. This capability enables individuals to register for classes, print certificates of attendance and track cumulative CEUs and salary incentive hours without having to submit requests to their training department.

Some of the categories METR tracks include in-service, state-mandated, remedial and roll call training, firearms qualifications, training videos and bulletins, civilian employee continuing education units, salary incentive hours, training compliance and a built-in issued equipment list with search feature that helps ensure found property is returned to the correct individual. Modules in development include Equipment Inventory Tracking, Employee Disciplinary Actions, Employee Training Plans (i.e. SWAT, supervisor promotion, etc.) and Electronic Employee Evaluations.
