Other Benefits of our Health and Safety Courses.

Most people prefer courses online as they allow you to learn at your own pace. In a non online training environment, the trainer is going at the pace of the slowest or fastest student in the class. Completing courses online is simply seen as a much better way of learning.

Recent studies have also found that good quality interactive and engaging courses online improves your memory retention by as much as 50%.

Our Health and Safety Course simply allows you to become legally compliant, quicker.

Free Health and Safety Courses

There are certainly free courses online, but let us tell you, there is no such thing as a free lunch and be aware of what appears too good to be true! A high quality Health and Safety Course recognised by industry experts has a value. What is the point in completing an online course that hasn’t been vetted for appropriate course content.

What we can say however is that our Health and Safety Course is more cost effective because less money is spent on travelling, room hire, refreshments, equipment hire, administration, handouts etc.

Is the eLearning Health and Safety Course Reliable?

Our Health and Safety Courses will never be cancelled at the last minute. Neither are our Health and Safety Courses dependent on a minimum number of student numbers. We also aim to have a 99.9% up time for all our courses online.

Our Health and Safety Courses are Naturally more Environmentally Friendly.

All courses online, including our Health and Safety Courses are also better for the environment. Studies show that on average, the production and provision of courses online consumed nearly 90 percent less energy, and produced 85 percent fewer CO2 emissions per student than conventional learning.

Is the Health and Safety Course Quicker?

Yes and No. As you take a course online at your own pace, it will take as long or as short as you need it to. The actual length of a course online will also vary from course to course but generally an online course can be completed in 40% less time than in conventional non online training. There are many reasons for this but predominantly courses online don’t waste set up and close down time nor is there time wasted with unnecessary social interaction that happens in a non online training environment..
