Risk and Emergency eLearning – Overview & Introduction

Forward – Some of our eLearning programmes have been recognised by The Institution of Fire Engineers (IFE); IFE are a worldwide body that provides research, training, conferences and professional qualifications for firefighters and civilians who work in fields related to firefighting, the science of firefighting and prevention, and related technology. IFE are identifying up to 20 hours and 30 hours Recognition of Prior Learning for our eLearning courses.

Our unique eLearning training is recognised as one of the first truly effective Fire and Rescue, Mine Rescue and Workplace Safety eLearning processes; we have also developed this eLearning in the high risk workplace space…. It is second to none, in the style, unique manner and thorough content to which it is presented, accessibility, ease of use and most of all, and its effective manner of delivery.

While training and developing firefighters and rescuers over the last 35 years we have observed many trends impacting on successful outcomes.

This also applies to in our experiences with workplace high risk activities training; It has become noticeable that successful outcomes are not assured by the content of the programs nor by the ability of the trainers that deliver them – `the content could be the latest and greatest from a respected institutions like Yale or Oxford`; and yet if the knowledge doesn’t stick it can be concluded that the training was a waste of time and money.

Content is not king when it comes to learning nor the underpinning knowledge required by firefighters and rescuers, or high risk workplace training requirements.

Let me remind you of the wise words of the famous philosopher Confucius:

“I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.”

This is where our eLearning  comes into its own – We have worked tirelessly and feverously over the last 30 months to hone our approach to designing, building and implementing a world first;  

Our eLearning “I hear, and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.” concept.

Give yourself every opportunity to know your subject and be truly qualified via underpinning knowledge retention and underpinning skill application.

At a Glance: 10 Reasons to Risk and Emergency – eLearning

1. Averting of travel & accommodation costs. As much as 40 cents of every dollar spent on in-person training goes to travel and lodging costs, studies show. Those and other fixed expenses are avoided entirely when Web-based training replaces classroom instruction. The result is dramatically lower costs per-person trained. That fact alone often justifies the switch to online training.

2. We offer Accessibility & Convenience. Instead of mandatory travel to a single location to receive instruction, busy and remote employees and others can participate in training and meeting sessions on their laptops at locations convenient to them. Online meeting products can be employed immediately to deliver and share important information.

3. Improved retention and productivity. Our ELearning contributes to retention and satisfaction, resulting in higher productivity and employee satisfaction. Factors include more time on the job with the elimination of instructional travel.

4. Security & safekeeping. Our web-based training sessions can be held with complete assurance for the safeguard of valuable intellectual property with password-based user authentication, end-to-end encryption and other available security features.

5. Audit and Compliance. Training events and occurrences can be captured, monitored and archived for on-demand viewing .Content is available around the clock.

6. Sharing & Learning. Provides and encourages a growing segment of corporate knowledge transfer within many organisations. Built-in reporting capabilities allow moderators to track attendees for each session

7. Accessible data. Readily available data also enables appropriate and timely follow-up, including evaluation and immediate contact of participants. That is especially valuable for customer training, and sessions where time-to-market urgency is important.

8. Enhanced organisational productivity. Busy SMEs can get multiple usages out of applications. I.e. eLearning isn’t just used for initial training but also utilised in 90 day skills maintenance programs. This means less time spent on planning and managing activities.

9. Measurable global impact. Even the smallest or poorly budgeted organisations can reach distant customers and representatives with valuable training, “levelling the playing field” with larger competitors. Data gathered from participating customers allows organisations to respond to ever-changing market conditions.

10. Elimination of redundant training-related services and vendors is another feature of this new paradigm. Whether your objective is to reduce costs, or to increase access to information, or to improve your training standards and activities, our eLearning is the answer.
