Unwavering focus on customer satisfaction in both traditional and blended solutions in traditional learning, E-Learning, blended learning, gamification, virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), and artificial intelligence (AI).

Traditional Learning

Calian has been providing stand-and-deliver learning solutions, such as instructor-led or classroom programs, for nearly four decades. We provide a hands-on, tailored experience in a face-to-face setting with qualified instructors leading the learning journey.


Using digital technologies outside a traditional classroom setting allows for multiplatform delivery giving the learner control over the learning journey. Calian provides courses leveraging the full range of learning technology and technology-enabled approaches such as computer-based courses, microlearning, and interactive training videos.

Blended Learning

Calian combines traditional face-to-face training and advanced training technologies, allowing learners to work at their own pace. This frees up the facilitator to challenge those learners who are excelling with the curriculum while providing additional support and guidance to those who need it.


Calian’s team can help make learning fun with the addition of game-like elements to simulate engagement. This area can include serious gaming, full-scale simulations or simple online learning programs.

Virtual Reality (VR)

Using VR technologies, the Calian team provides the opportunity to practice soft skills that tap into the affective domain, such as conflict resolution, HR concerns, patient exams and customer interactions. VR allows learners to practice important skills over and over again, changing and improving their approach to achieve a better outcome. Calian offers VR training on a large or small scale.

Augmented Reality (AR)

Enhance the learning experience by merging a learners real-time visual and auditory environment with images and sounds that are generated by a learning system. This version of immersive learning also enables just-in-time learning for full scale training seminars or on-the-job training.

Our success is rooted in our people.
