This Virtual College online fire safety course helps you to fulfil this obligation by providing your staff with the knowledge and understanding required to act safely in the event of a fire in the workplace, without the need to travel or take a full day away from the office.

The benefits of using online training in the workplace include:

  • Cost Reductions e.g. travel fees
  • Man hour reduction (training only takes as long as the learner needs)
  • Self-printed certificate for evidence of course completion
  • Staff can start training immediately
  • Helping your business maintain a green status by reducing your carbon footprint

All of our e-learning courses are SCORM compliant, meaning it can be paused by the user and picked up when they like, allowing freedom to complete the course in a time that fits around their workload.
