Some things should be learned in a classroom with a teacher and other things are more suited to online learning in short periods of time.
Those classes longer than 5 or 6 hours are much easier to take in a class environment where your time can be guided by a teacher.
However, when it comes to safety training in small, easy to understand parts, online training is a very effective option.
Online training is quickly becoming the format of choice for many companies for short courses. This is likely because the transport time and costs for a 2 hour course are hard to swallow. People don’t want to take the whole day to travel to and from a short class.
