Education - Staffing Firm

Is the staffing firm responsible for providing ongoing education to their employees?

Any examples are for illustrative purposes only.

The staffing firm encourages on-going education of its staff by offering education directly, or making available any schedules, announcements and overviews of any formal educational activities offered by various professional organizations and/or healthcare organizations. In many cases of licensed staff there is a state requirement for the staff to pursue continuing education for renewal of the professional license. The staffing firm should track the continuing education of staff which occurs outside of the organization.
