10 Benefits of E-Learning Security Training

Tuesday, April 12th, 2016

Nowadays, we’re all constantly so busy, and yet, we’re still in need of making sure we are up-to-date with new and relevant facts and developments in security training. These are vital to making sure we are alert and protected during the course of our work. 

E-learning provides the perfect balance and solution to this. But what specifically are the advantages of e-learning and can they be applied to the security sector without creating unnecessary risk?

The simple answer is yes, absolutely, but let’s look exactly at why security training through e-learning is ideal...

1. Maximum Knowledge

Preparation and insight are significant and effective ways to ensure that risk is diminished. By creating a learning environment that ensures you are able to fit training into your schedule perfectly and pay complete attention to it, minimises the risk while equipping the learner with a whole host of up-to-the-minute knowledgeable and industry-specific skills. 

2. Cost Effective

Ongoing learning is a lifelong pursuit, but it would be naive to not recognise that it can be an expensive one too. By completing your security training online, not only do you receive all of the necessary skills and information taught to you at a lower price, you also cut out travel costs to and from the classroom. 

3.  Flexible 

While the emphasis is placed upon ensuring that learners get the most accurate and reliable information available on security training within the marketplace, there is definitely added value that comes from being able to responsibly schedule in necessary sessions within your own timetable. 

4. Clear Compliance

The security training industry adheres to numerous policies, advisory statements and regulations that cover best practice methodology specific to the securities industry, and all this is included in the e-learning course modules.

5. Diverse subjects

With e-learning training solutions, learners can become experienced in a range of subject matters that relate to prominent issues within the security training industry. Full modules are available within several areas of security training including spectator safety, improvised explosive device awareness, search procedures, personal safety, conflict management and fire safety. 

6. Comprehensive modules 

Each e-learning training course comprises a variety of comprehensive modules that are specific and relevant to the securities industry. Each e-learning course specifies what sub-sector of the industry the training modules are designed for. 

7. Practical Instructions To Follow

Unlike traditional e-learning training courses that leave the student once the online learning modules have been complete, following submission, NVQ courses from Controlled Solutions Group feature a practical assessment, as opposed to the online courses in general. Practical solutions will be offered to help further engage the learner and help them succeed in the securities industry. 

8. Achieve a Recognised Qualification

When it comes to e-learning training courses, there is a lot of information on the web that focuses on self-development, growth and interesting topics that we love to learn about. However, upon completion, the student may not have gained any industry-specific qualifications or knowledge when it comes to the industry they are hoping to enter. That’s why e-learning security training courses that provide learners with a Level 2 NVQ Certificate qualification or those that have been developed by leading experts within the industry are extremely valuable. 

9. Leading Experts 

Despite security training solutions being online, it does not deter from the level and quality of teaching and training made available by a whole host of industry experts that have extensive knowledge, experience, or both, in the securities industry. 

10. Ongoing Engagement 

Prior to the commencement of the course and throughout its undertaking, there is a dedicated team of customer service staff and teachers on hand to help answer any questions you may have on the different e-learning security training courses.
