In recent years, e-learning has gained a prominent position in the market for, among other things, occupational health and safety training. The popularity of e-learning is also growing in induction training courses for companies. "2018 has been a big year in terms of delivery of e-learning induction courses. We really feel a keen interest from our customers to convert their induction courses offered in class into e-learning. Among the successful projects of 2018, we note induction training for corporate such as Quebec Iron Ore, Rio Tinto Havre-Saint-Pierre, Tafisa, Lantic, Agropur, Louisiana-Pacific Maniwaki and Alcoa.”, states Cognibox e-learning director, Marie-Eve Levasseur.
"Several of these clients opted for the creation of one corporate induction training, followed by induction trainings for each of their site or job. Our customers are aware of the importance of making quality and precise training content available, even if it means segmenting it into several small trainings. In some cases, we have developed a dozen induction courses for the same client. It may seem like a lot, but since the content has a specific subject, learning and viewing the training is easy. This way of doing things is very appreciated by both executives and contractors, " she says.
The benefits of offering induction training in e-learning are numerous: cost reduction, simplified coordination, standardization of learning, interactive experience, immediate synchronization of training results with contractor’s profile in Cognibox, etc.
The induction training gives contractors company-specific elements to guide them in the instructions to be followed and to learn more about their work environment. It can be completed remotely, either at the contractor's facilities or directly in his truck before entering the site.
"We are very proud to help our customers maximize their induction program, but most importantly, to contribute in creating a safer work environment for employees and contractors on the premises”, she concludes.
