Customer Service & Support

Users can contact customer support via phone or email. They can also access BlueVolt’s FAQ page for troubleshooting issues.


There is a $9,600 set-up fee plus a $980 monthly subscription.


BlueVolt is not ideal for companies whose approach to training is only instructor-led/classroom-based training. BlueVolt can track course participation and completion with ILT, but lacks the features for reliance on that single approach.

Organizations that do not approach training through a blended learning or digital approach should look into other solutions for tracking training.
