5 Reasons Why You Should Choose Online Courses for Fire Safety

Training is one of the top methods in helping to protect against fires by providing your employees with the knowledge they need to keep themselves and other colleagues safe. Whilst trainingEXP provides a unique EXPerience with our virtual-reality classroom training programmes, we also provide a variety of online courses for fire safety.   

But what are the common reasons we see for people opting for our online courses? 

On-Demand Learning  

You can get TV on demand, so why not your training courses?   

Our online training provides greater flexibility and convenience for learners. With on-demand training, individuals can access the material at their own pace and schedule without coordinating schedules or travelling to a specific location. This can be particularly useful for busy professionals or those needing access to training opportunities in their area.  

There are no travel or accommodation expenses, and individuals can access the materials repeatedly without additional costs, making online training a more cost-effective solution. This can be particularly beneficial for organisations with limited budgets or those looking to train many individuals. The flexibility of online training can help reinforce important concepts and ensure that the training is better retained over the long term. 

In summary, having online training on demand provides greater flexibility, convenience, and cost-effectiveness than one-off in-person training. On-demand training offers a more effective and efficient way to deliver training to individuals and organisations for the long term.  

Train Any Time, Any Place  

Does your business have multiple locations across different cities? Even in the same city, you might need help to arrange training that suits all your sites’ needs. With online training, you don’t have to worry.   

By having online training that is available at any location and at any time offers numerous benefits to both individuals and organisations. It also allows for greater accessibility, as individuals from remote or rural areas who may not have easy access to traditional training facilities can still receive the training they need.

Also, those with disabilities can revisit the training if they miss something, for example, whereas in a traditional setting, they might not feel comfortable doing so. This ensures everyone has an equal opportunity to develop their skills and knowledge.  

eLearning Can Be More Engaging Than Traditional Training  

There’s always been a debate on whether online training and employment can provide the same value as being there in person. But what if we tell you that online training can be just as effective as traditional classroom-based training at a fraction of the cost and time? 

You can’t argue with these statistics!  

  • Learning through online courses typically requires 40-60% less employee time than learning the same course material in a traditional classroom setting. 
  • Even though they spend less time completing these courses, they learn five times more material than they would on a course that takes them away from their workday for longer periods.   
  • eLearning retention rates are increased by 25-60%. Face-to-face training has shown retention rates of between 8 and 10%.

eLearning Requires Less Admin Work     

We could all do a little less admin work during our day. Online training records everything, from which employees have completed the training and where they are on the programme. This means that if your business is ever audited, you’ll have everything you need all in one place. With any other form of training, it becomes someone’s job to maintain records, which leaves it open to human error and an endless amount of admin.   

eLearning Can Be Tailored to Meet Your Business’s Exact Needs  

We understand that not every size fits all, and you might need more specific training for your business. What you need for your employees could be entirely different to what other industries need, and that’s okay.   

trainingEXP has an array of both general courses and ones tailored to specific sectors. Our online courses have been tailored for those across a variety of industries, with separate courses for designers and architects within this industry, those working in care homes, those in the construction industry and more.
