Video Safety courses? OK. Here’s why.
Why on earth would you stick with text based eLearning? exultcorp.com reveals that a learner will only remember 10 per cent of textual content, 25 per cent of visual content, 30 per cent of audio content but 50 per cent of audio-visual content.
So we produce our compliance courses in HD video.
Q: Why do we produce our Health & Safety courses in HD video?
Quick answer: watching video improves the attention of the trainee, and that’s what we all want:
More effective outcomes.
Now for the long answer:
Watching moving images and swiftly decoding the messages within, is second nature to us. How often does a member of a modern workforce watch television or video?
- On average video learners score 37 percent better than text learners on a post-training test. On retention tests given a few days following the training session, video learners’ scores were 45 percent greater when compared to the text group. (University of Twente, 2012
- The average viewer in the UK watched a total of 3 hours, 51 minutes of TV a day in 2015. (ThinkBox).
- Today’s employees are 75 percent more likely to watch a video than to read emails, documents, or web articles. (Forrester)
- 62% of millennials would rather watch a video that read text. (Animoto).
- 98% of organisations around the globe planned to implement video as part of their digital learning strategy in 2016. (exultcorp)
So, what’s it going to be ? Death by powerpoint? The utter boredom of text based eLearning? The expense of off-site training?
Or more effective training in a format your staff will enjoy?
That’s why we produce our courses the way we do.
Shout Out Safety courses are streamed as broadcast-quality HD video, which increases engagement and knowledge retention.
Health & Safety training is far too important to be boring.
All of our courses are accredited and endorsed by The CPD Certification Service. Once you’ve completed the course you’ll be able to immediately download a unique, personalized and endorsed certificate to keep with your records or to send to your employer.
Video Safety courses – FAQ
When do I get my certificate?
Unlike many e-Leaning courses, you’ll get you certificate immediately after you pass the course. It will be in your name and you can download it as soon as you’ve watched all the clips and successfully passed the tests.
How long is this course going to take?
We suggest you allocate 30 minutes. It’s short but it contains the essential information you need to know.
How is the course delivered?
We present the courses as a set of four short video clips. Simply press play and the first clip will be shown. Watch it, concentrate on the information and after the clip finishes there will be a set of questions for you to answer on the information you’ve just watched.
Is there a passmark?
Yes. Every set of questions requires you to get 75% to move on to the next clip.
Can I re-sit the test?
Yes you can. If you don’t get the 75% pass mark you can re-sit the test but the questions are likely to be different to the ones you just attempted.
Can I watch the clip again?
Yes you can. As many times as you want to.
Can I fast forward through the clip?
No, we’ve disabled that facility. When we were setting these courses up we looked at some other e-Learning courses out there and found out we could fast forward to the end of each section. In our opinion, that’s no way to learn. This stuff is important and could save lives and stop accidents and injuries – that’s why we make sure that you have to watch the video through to the end.2
Training by video is simply a more effective way to learn.
Is the video just someone talking at me?
Nope. We create scenarios, we interview victims and medical experts, we show what you should be doing and a lot of the things you shouldn’t be doing. We make these videos as entertaining as we can. When you’re entertained, you’re concentrating. That’s key. We also use a professional crew and the outstanding actor, Mark Roper. Image
Don’t take our word for it. Read this from a happy customer.
“We normally use Training Manuals and printed literature as a way of rolling out training and refresher training to our colleagues across our 3 depots. This is not only time-consuming but also sometimes less effective. It is challenging to get colleagues engaged and not to just see it as a tick box exercise. We went out into the market place to find new methods of training and preferably e-learning as a solution to this problem, and found Shout Out Safety.
Unlike other companies, they gave us full access to samples so that we could see for ourselves just how good the product and services that they offer really were – as with most things ‘the proof is in the pudding’.
Humour keeps people engaged.
I must say that they were right, the slap-stick approach and key details approach to the delivery of the training tutorials did exactly what we were looking for. The training kept the colleagues engaged, all the relevant information was delivered clearly and precisely rather than getting dull and bored with the bombardment of fact after fact after fact. It only took a relatively little amount of time for each colleague to achieve a certificated level of training that is also accredited. This then gave us as a company enhanced traceability for our own quality management system in regards to training, and gave each colleague a certificate of their own.
Shout Out Safety not only offer great tutorial courses but also fantastic after service. We have found their customer service to be second to none, they are more than happy to help with any queries or specific requirements.
I highly recommend them to any business as a highly professional and efficient training provider.”
