Go remote for in-house training – even during lockdown

in-house remote training

In-house courses are a cost-effective way to train several members of staff at once. Last year our trainers delivered over 140 in-house courses at companies all around the UK and even abroad.

This year, of course, things are a little different. We are still happy to deliver training at customers’ premises subject to Covid-19 risk assessments. However, we appreciate that many sites are not accepting visitors, or that staff might be working from home or on furlough.

If that’s the case, you can still benefit from the cost savings of a Verner Wheelock in-house course. Instead of coming to your premises, we can deliver the same training courses remotely. That way, your staff can all log in and train together, wherever they happen to be.

Even during lockdown or if staff are on furlough, they are still able to train. The rule is that as long as the individual/company is not gaining financially from the training, it is permitted.

Same content as regular in-house training

You can be reassured that your staff will receive the same high standard of training that they have come to expect from Verner Wheelock. The same professional trainers with food industry experience will be able to answer your questions. The content is essentially the same as a face-to-face training course and there is still the opportunity to interact with the trainer and the other delegates. Plus, there are no travel or accommodation costs to pay.

Train when it’s convenient

Apart from the cost savings, another benefit of in-house training is that you can choose when the training takes place, unlike open courses where there is a set calendar of training courses.

For those unfamiliar with Zoom or Microsoft Teams, a member of the Verner Wheelock team is on hand to assist with any queries or technical issues. You can even request a practice training session beforehand.

Remember, any of our HACCP, auditing, food safety or specialist courses can be delivered remotely. Don’t let your staff miss out on the training they need. Give Claire Lennon a call on 01756 700802 or email her at claire.lennon@vwa.co.uk and she will be happy to help.
