Aviation pilots, logging workers and derrick operators are considered to be some of the riskiest and most challenging roles requiring consistent and accredited skills development in order to mitigate risk for both company and employee.
Cranfield Training used Covid lockdowns to digitise a variety of high-risk training solutions that are accredited by the South African Civil Aviation Authority. These online programmes provide reliable skills development and training that are aligned with stringent compliance mandates and regulations.
This notoriously expensive training can now be undertaken anywhere at any time without the added expense of travel, accommodation and time away from work.
“As many of these high-risk companies have an intense focus on safety over productivity, continuous training is a vital part of any operation regardless of the person’s capacity or role,” says Rick Bosman of Cranfield Training. “All individuals have to undertake continuous professional development so they remain compliant, and so they can enforce and manage their own safety and well-being.”
In collaboration with aNewSpring Learning Management System (LMS) from New Leaf Technologies, Cranfield Training delivers a mix of theory, blended learning and facilitator-led instruction that adapts according to the subject matter, the role and industry-specific guidelines.
The platform provides certification even if learners cannot physically attend training and offers a proctoring function that physically films and records the user during assessments. This ensures that certain courses have the physical proof required to confirm that the person doing the final course assessment is the right one.
Cranfield Training offers up to 80 unique courses and has provided training to over 3 200 employees. Most popular for high-risk industries include:
- Human Factor Training provides training for where human error can cost lives
- Drug and Alcohol Management
- Just Culture Training
- Communicable Disease Training
- Health, Safety and Environment Training
- Hosting Environment Awareness Training
- Hydrogen Sulphide Training
- Automated Safety Audit Checklist Software and many more.
New Leaf Technologies worked closely with Cranfield Training to ensured that the final product was easy to use, interactive and compliant. It has been a landmark training platform evolution that has put Cranfield Training on the global stage so allowing it to compete even more effectively. This attracts new markets while discovering smarter ways of improving the materials it has on offer.
