E-learning for all

In the February edition of PCC Insight, we announced new courses for our annual contract clients and we are pleased to update you that we have now made our courses available for all customers to purchase.

We expanded our list of topics from our extensive library. The library of courses includes some short sessions of five to ten minutes, which are a good resource and introduction to some areas. The topics also fit with the importance of looking after yourself, your health and wellbeing.

The way e-learning is purchased is different to our previous offer, instead of purchasing individual courses you can purchase a pass for one named individual to access all the courses we have available for one year. We will add new playlists to the list of courses available over time. This provides great value for money.

Are you looking for mandatory training for your team? We will be introducing a new playlist for mandatory training which will include equality and diversity, cyber security awareness training, health and safety for homeworkers office health and safety module and GDPR awareness. Look out for the announcement about this soon.

New courses added to our library are:
