Approach

Experiential learning —
powered by simulations

From ready-to-deploy offerings to build-your-own options, we uniquely empower learning leaders to easily create and deliver learning solutions perfectly aligned with their learning objectives.

Other solutions are built around limited or single capability, provide limited options for course creation and deployment, and require a large team and developers to create and manage.

With Regis solutions, you can create and deliver transformative experiential learning programs – powered by simulations – that are truly effective, scalable, and affordable. As well, our powerful, elegant dashboard makes administration a breeze, and our skills assessments and rich reporting capabilities deliver measurable, repeatable ROI.
