Online courses

We have a wide range of online training courses available to help you develop your knowledge and learn new skills.

There are three types of training to choose from, offering complete flexibility around when and how you learn.  

Live online courses

Many of our most popular training courses have been adapted to modular online courses.

They feature interactive sessions with the trainer, alongside independent virtual study and pre-recorded video sessions before/between sessions:

We also offer a more bite-sized approach to training, featuring live one-hour modules with a trainer; a Q&A session, and digital recordings for your personal use afterwards:

Live interactive case studies

These two-hour interactive sessions take you through real life incidents as they unfold, without prior knowledge of the outcome, encouraging you to make crucial safety decisions at designated points throughout, and to reflect on how your decisions impact on the incident:

On-demand courses

Learn at a time that suits you best with digital recordings of the learning content, usually in manageable one-hour sessions.

See the A–Z list below for details of the process safety, project management and personal development topics available.
