That would depend on how training is done.
If associates are required to take training that produces a printable certificate. You could create a list that would require the scan image of the certificate to be uploaded. The list could track other information that is needed (Associate's name, date of training, score, etc.)  

If the training is something that is taken within SharePoint itself. Then the training material itself could track associates that took the training.

How is training currently done for associates? Do they go to a third party (vendor) for training?

The short answer is yes. But you need to be able to establish policies and processes to get this information into SharePoint.

Then there is; specifically what do you want to track about each associate?

Sharepoint is not used at the moment for training.  It is a third party product.
How would the list track information that is needed (Associate's name, date of training, score, etc.)  ?

You would have to develop a process for this.  
For example: Associates that need training would be required to register and request/record all training to get credit for the training.  They would be required to upload their Certificates of completion and other desired information. Once you have set up a basic process you can add automation to alert Associates that it is time to take their annual training again, etc. SharePoint is a very flexable tool.  You just need to have a process or vision of what you would like to do.

What is the current process?
