Who should do this course?
This course is intended to assist organizations to train all employees about sexual harassment in a cost effective manner.
How to do this course
The course is delivered via an on line learning platform meaning that anyone who does this course will need access to the internet, a computer, as well as a printer, which is needed to print out the workbook. The workbook is FREE.
The course is divided into short modules so that an employee can complete the course over a period of time- and in their own time- from their workplace thereby saving the cost of setting up a training venue and limiting the amount of time employees are away from work.
On-line training has the additional benefit of allowing a student to re-do, review, and pause the training as well as do a refresher at any time during the training period. The benefit of the workbook is that the student has a physical document which contains all he needs to know about the content and is used as an interactive learning tool which assists in understanding and retention of the information conveyed during the course.
