Why is the training computer based?
On-line or computer based training provides both consistency and flexibility. It provides employers with the opportunity to use unexpected down time in a cost effective and productive manner. And by using a database driven system, it provides a method of not only testing the knowledge of participants, but it also documents the results. Training can be provided 7 days a week, 24 hours a day to employees both at work and at home. No more lost productivity and no more booking training rooms or renting training facilities or hiring trainers. What could be simpler!
