ONLINE VS CLASSROOM: Top 10 Benefits of E-Learning

Some employers may be reluctant to pursue online instruction, but do so at your own risk! “E-Learning” is at the cutting edge of training and companies that harness its potential consistently produce excellent employees. Refer to our quick hit list below for the top ten advantages of SET Safety’s online safety courses.

  1. Lower cost

    No classroom, no booklets, no instructors– there is almost no overhead! Online learning allows SET Safety to provide competitive rates for all of our courses. We also specialize in bulk orders and group accounts– pay upfront or “as-you-go.”

  2. Flexibility

    Do you have staff in remote locations? Do your employees have busy schedules? These could all make “in-class” learning impossible. Thankfully, if your staff has internet access: they can take a SET Safety online safety course. Not only is it convenient, students can complete courses and exams at a life-friendly pace. Many courses are even mobile-friendly (can be taken via smartphone).

  3. Better Retention

    SET Safety’s courses are designed to be fully interactive with audio and video components. Our “blended” learning approach offers all the benefits of immersive instruction without the pressure of a classroom. Studies report that e-learning students often retain more knowledge and provide more feedback overall.

  4. Customization

    Access to online courses can be given at the press of a button and new programs can be added at any time. Our 24/7 convenience allows your staff to progress at their own pace, but we can also tailor the programs to deadline-oriented industries.

  5. Comfortable Environment

    Many people find classrooms uncomfortable and some may even have negative associations with lecture-style learning. With SET Safety’s e-learning courses, students can choose when and where they study. Online instruction allows you to learn at your highest point of focus and energy.

  6. Up To Date

    All of SET Safety’s courses are kept up to date with industry standards. We pride ourselves on the professional recognition and certification that endorse our curriculum. Are you upgrading or renewing? New information and standards are included seamlessly for all students.

  7. Easy Tracking

    Management or administration can monitor all students enrolled in one of our customized group accounts. Real-time updates and reports on grades, completions or other performance can all be accessed easily through SET Safety’s programs.

  8. Eco-Friendly
    Consider the carbon footprint of traditional classroom instruction: paper and various supplies; utilities and other venue costs; commuting for students and instructor… The list goes on. Nearly all negative output is neutralized when you convert to an e-learning system from SET Safety.
  9. Productivity Stays High

    Don’t lose valuable hours of productivity to days spent in the classroom. SET Safety will help keep your staff active with online courses that can be easily fit into even the busiest of schedules.

  10. Consistency

    With SET Safety online safety training courses, each student is receiving the same instruction and course material. This kind of consistency is impossible to achieve with in-person training– humans are humans: we have bad days. Our online courses never have bad days! You can trust your staff with our universal learning system.
