What’s the advantage of on-site training over a quality computer based training (CBT) system?

Although many computer based training programs are available, many of which are good quality, there are many limitations to such a training format. The advantage to having an experienced and skilled instructor conducting training tailored specifically to you are numerous;

  • A skilled instructor will engage your employees in a manner that CBT training cannot; ensuring much higher information, understanding, and retention
  • It affords your employees an opportunity to ask questions and engage in discussion on the subject matter and how it applies to their unique work environment
  • It can incorporate your specific work policies and procedures as well as the hazards unique to your facility
  • It will often include hands-on training that cannot be duplicated through CBT
  • It allows for training the “safety process” as opposed to merely communicating safety rules
