E-Learning Options for Quality and Environmental Management Training

20 January 2016
ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 are important standards for quality and environmental management in organisations of any size.

While there is a clear benefit to training key staff members on current quality and environmental management standards, classroom based learning can be expensive and time-consuming. That’s where NQA’s e-learning courses come in.

Benefits of E-Learning

For busy organisations with limited budgets, the benefits of using e-learning to stay ahead of the latest developments in ISO 9001, 14001 and other management systems are clear. E-learning has several tangible benefits:

  • It’s more cost-effective. NQA’s e-learning courses can be accessed at any time, from any Internet-enabled computer. This means training can be done without the expense associated with travelling to a classroom, such as travel, hotel accommodations, expenses, etc.

  • It has a faster delivery time. E-learning course content can be developed and delivered quickly to incorporate the latest updates to ISO standards as well as related cultural and technological changes. Instead of losing key staff for several days as they travel to training seminars, downtime is reduced to a few hours and can be scheduled at your convenience.

  • It’s more engaging. It’s easy to zone out in a classroom setting. But with our e-learning training portal, your staff can engage more directly with course content, improving their odds of retaining and successfully implementing the valuable lessons being taught. E-learning modules can also be paused or replayed at any time, reducing the likelihood that key points will be misunderstood.

E-learning also has a lower environmental impact than conventional classroom training — an added bonus for any business that makes reducing their carbon footprint a priority.
