CARY, NC, February 13, 2015 – Relias Learning, the leader in online training and compliance solutions for staff training, continued its remarkable journey with exceptional growth in  2014, earning recognition on the Inc. 5000 list of the fastest growing companies in the United States for the second year in a row.
