  • Online training is less expensive than attending an external training course or providing in-house training;
  • Online training is flexible in terms of the availability and location of the learner: training can be undertaken anywhere and anytime, provided there is access to the internet;
  • The learner can proceed at their own pace and is actively involved during the training;

General Data Protection Regulation Essentials – Online Course

The General Data Protection Regulation is intended to unify and strengthen data protection for everyone within the European Union.

After concerns were raised about the ‘control’ of personal information within the EU, it was decided that a regulation should be put in place to give control back to the citizens. The government has confirmed that the UK’s decision to leave the EU will not affect the commencement of the GDPR.

Although the GDPR regulations don’t come into effect until 25th May this year, this GDPR Training programme can be used now, and where significant differences exist between the current data protection laws and the new GDPR regulations we explain what those differences are.

Our GDPR Training will teach you about the fundamental requirements needed to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation. Our course will be CPD approved and will provide certificates upon completion, helping you to comply with the GDPR. 

Abrasive Wheels Online Safety Course

Abrasive wheels are powered wheels, cylinders, belts or points made from, or coated with abrasive particles; they are incredibly fast moving, which can make them very dangerous and injuries can be extremely serious. Around half of all accidents involving abrasive wheels are due to them being used incorrectly or without the proper controls in place.

Falls from height are one of the biggest causes of workplace fatalities and major injuries, often from ladders and through fragile roofs. The Working at Height Regulations 2005 are there to try and prevent death and injury from a fall from height.
