HSE have teamed up with Virtual College to provide on online e-learning experience, designed to help businesses meet their compliance needs.

To make sure that the learner only receives information that is relevant to them, the content has been designed so it is as relevant and personal to them as possible. The course is delivered in bite-sized chunks and includes sector-specific case studies, videos, infographics and downloadable resources.

About the online courses

These courses are designed for dutyholders across all industries. Three different courses have been developed, each one relating to different job roles and responsibilities, and within each one they can personalise the information to common sectors, such as catering and hospitality, education, and healthcare. Content is in-depth, correct and in line with businesses' needs.
