Overview – Online Training
Advantages: Online training can be used virtually anywhere and at any time your employees have internet access. Online training avoids the complications and costs associated with scheduling multiple employees and a trainer to meet in one physical location at the same time. New hires can be trained as soon as they walk in the door rather than waiting for next available class room schedules.
All courses are self-paced to the individual employee being trained. Courses can be started, stopped, and resumed if necessary, as each segment completed is quizzed and recorded.Any wrong answer loops the employee back to the material presented until they know and understand the material. Employees cannot move on to the next segment until they can answer all questions successfully. Nothing is lost as long as the employee completes all sections successfully as documented throughout by the quizzes.
All courses are SCORM compliant, generally available in English and Spanish, and come with the most advanced system for playing video over slow connections. State-of-the art technology overcomes bandwidth limitations to make it possible to deliver eye-popping, broadcast quality training that makes the learning both effective and enjoyable, and includes a powerful and easy to use Learning Management System, with:
- Tools For Management: Ability to assign course requirements and dates to complete by employee, department, function or location. Ability to run periodic reports to see which if any training is completed successfully, overdue or scheduled as upcoming. There is full documentation of successful course completion by each employee.
- Ease for Employees: At a glance, users can see where they are at in meeting all of their training assignments. They can see what assignments are due and which ones they’ve already completed. They can click on their history / certificates tab and get immediate access to their historical training record or print a certificate or wallet card.
Additional OSHA Requirements:
OSHA requires that all training be conducted “during work hours”, e.g. that employees are paid for the time taken in training. If this is not done during regular work hours, then subject to any rules the employer may have on overtime, the employer should offer equivalent hourly pay for each training session (as if they paid them for their time to attend an off-site training course).
OSHA also requires that in a computer-based program the “the trainees have the opportunity to ask questions where material is unfamiliar to them.” This requirement is met through providing our toll-free telephone hotline and e-mail address.
Finally, supplementary hands-on training and exercises should be provided to assure that employees have an opportunity to become familiar with equipment and safe practices in a non-hazardous setting. Example: donning and doffing of personal protective equipment.
