While online training is a convenient option, instructor-led safety training offers benefits that will produce a greater long-term payoff, including:
When it comes to knowledge retention, nothing beats instructor led training. The classroom provides a focused environment for learning that encourages participation and discussion.
Experienced instructors can tailor approaches and answer specific questions that come up during the course of the training. Students also receive immediate feedback. If a particular section is confusing, too fast or too slow, the trainer can adjust the teaching plan to accommodate real-time feedback.
In a classroom setting, attendees can gain insight from others questions and learn from their peers as well as the instructor. This is also a great networking opportunity to meet and learn from others in a similar field or trade.
