We're determined to prove e-learning cynics wrong with our portfolio of industry accredited online courses.
For many of us in Britain, classroom-based learning is so ingrained in our upbringings that we can't help but be wary of online courses. Is online training really 'cutting corners', or does it have an important place in our fast-paced, digital world?
We believe it does - especially in the area of staff training.
Working with experts
When we begin working on a new e-learning course, our first step is to develop accurate, up-to-date content. To do this, we always work with subject matter experts who know the ins and outs of their specialism.
Our flagship DSE training tool AssessRite, for example, was developed alongside the highly regarded ergonomist John Ridd, who is himself a consultant who regularly lectures on courses at Surrey University, in addition to events presented by the likes of the European Commission, Royal College of Surgeons and many trade unions.
Interactive and engaging
Our next step is for our course designers and illustrators to present the content in an engaging and memorable way. This often involves developing interactive elements such as vibrant, clickable graphics and multi-choice questions.
Although not always suitable or relevant, many of our courses are accredited by recognised industry bodies. You can find out more about each accredited course by following the links in the table below.

Efficiency is not the same as cutting corners
E-learning is a practical, cost-effective way of training any number of staff in a consistent way. Because it's taken online, users can pause their learning at any time and save their progress. Courses can be assigned easily to individuals and reminders go out automatically to make it easy for the health and safety team to keep track of which staff member is trained on which subject.
Reports can be automatically generated, making it easier than ever to conduct an audit.

There's always the option of blended learning
Some of our clients seek a blend of online and face-to-face training. Some qualifications, like first aid, must be taken face-to-face. However, this can be supplemented with our online First Aid Refresher course.
There are many different ways to train your staff and e-learning certainly has its place in today's modern workplace. With WorkRite, you can either choose to have access to our entire portfolio of courses, or pick and choose the ones relevant to you.
