Taking product training beyond just the product – Medtronic’s Diabetes and Insulin Pump Courses

Back to All Client Success Stories



Business need

Medtronic asked us to train their customers to understand diabetes, and to understand how to use their insulin pump. Medtronic found that knowledge of diabetes and correct use of their insulin pumps went hand in hand.

Fredrickson’s solution

First, we listened. Fredrickson partnered with Medtronic to understand their customers, insulin pump therapy, and challenges—paying special attention to the needs of their customers.

We met with Medtronic during key stages of the project. We asked and answered questions, received feedback, and provided:

  • Learning consulting
  • Project management
  • Visual design
  • Instructional design
  • Development
  • Audio production
  • LMS connectivity


The Medtronic Diabetes eLearning Series consisted of six courses. Customer-focused interactions motivated learners to understand diabetes and Medtronic’s insulin pump, and a fresh design gave customers a positive image of Medtronic. These courses were created in 2006, and are still in use today.
