This time two weeks ago was our first day delivering the traditionally classroom based Driver CPC training programme online, and it really has given us an insight into what the future of training for the industry could look like.
At the Construction Training Centre, we deliver logistics training on a daily basis; both practical and theory, so when we had to close our doors we didn’t want to sit still – we wanted to find a new way of keeping the industry trained on the latest requirements.
In order to do this, we had to try something new, and for us that meant operating training in a virtual environment.
I have to say, that I have been impressed with the process so far, it’s run smoothly, much to the delight of last week’s learners and our trainers.
As we all know, it isn’t ideal circumstances in the world right now, as people social distance and self-isolate in their homes, but this new initiative has allowed us to keep up personal connections and also offer drivers the chance to update their training.
We have been able to offer this training at a reduced fee, thanks to additional funding we have secured, so this really is the time to dip your toes into digital learning and enhance your personal development.
Going forward this could be a way in which educators meet the needs of industry. The flexibility makes life a lot easier for workers and this is certainly something which could benefit the industry
