How to Measure Compliance Training Effectiveness

how to measure compliance training

When it comes to compliance training, one of the most important things that companies need to do is measure its effectiveness. After all, if you don’t know whether your training is working or not, how can you improve it? In this blog post, we will discuss how corporations can measure the effectiveness of their compliance training programs. We will also offer some tips on using those measurements to improve your compliance program.

Quantitative Metrics

Quantitative metrics use numbers to measure progress.

This might involve setting data points such as:

  • The number of employees who complete the training
  • The number of employees who pass an assessment after completing the training
  • Course completion rate
  • The amount of time it takes employees to complete the training
  • The satisfaction levels of employees who complete the training

All of these data points can help you measure the effectiveness of your compliance training program. And when you have this data, you can start to look for trends and see where you can make improvements.

Qualitative Metrics

Qualitative metrics focus on the quality of employee engagement with the compliance program.

Using qualitative metrics might include using surveys, focus groups, and interviews to ask employees who have completed the training:

  • What they thought of the training
  • How easy it was to understand
  • How relevant they felt the training was to their job
  • What they would change about the training

Qualitative metrics are more time-consuming to measure but can give you a fuller understanding of how your compliance training affects employees. This can be very useful when trying to make improvements to the program.

Using Artificial Intelligence and Data-Driven Insights To Measure Training Effectiveness

Many organizations are now using AI and big data to measure the effectiveness of their compliance training programs. For example, some companies use data analytics to track how employees interact with compliance-related content. 

Organizations can also use AI chatbots to answer employee questions about compliance. AI chatbots can help you gauge employees’ understanding of the material covered in the training and identify any areas of confusion.

Organizations can also use AI to create “virtual trainers” that provide coaching and feedback to employees in real time.


Measuring the effectiveness of compliance training is essential to ensuring that your program is successful. There are many ways to do this, including using quantitative and qualitative metrics and data-driven insights from AI. By taking the time to measure the effectiveness of your compliance training, you can make sure that your program is constantly improving.
