SGS Academy VILT courses are a convenient and cost effective way for individuals and businesses to accelerate their knowledge and skills in a safe environment.

Virtual instructor led training is the middle ground between classroom based training and eLearning. Training is scheduled as though for a classroom but is delivered remotely and hosted by a live instructor via a conferencing application. Learners get the benefit of collaboration with others while avoiding issues associated with travel, such as safety and costs.

In the past few months, the demand for remote learning has been greater than ever before, and we have seized the opportunity to better our training offering. Using the 6Es: Examine, Explore, Ensure, Enable, Establish and Evaluate, we have converted our current portfolio to offer a complete digital learning experience for those who require training on standards and regulations.

During this time, we have delivered over 200 accredited VILT courses and received a score of 3.90 out of 4.00 for course satisfaction as well as positive feedback from 88% of our learners.

To make this essential change to our learning portfolio, we:

  • Identified key barriers
  • Adapted our course materials, ensuring content remains interactive and engaging
  • Upskilled our tutors, providing them with training and support on new processes, tools and procedures
  • Offered learners a pilot of the SGS VILT environment prior to taking actual VILT courses

Moving forward, we can support to:

  • Utilize industry data to identify pain points and knowledge requirements
  • Recommend and develop new training solutions to meet our customers' needs
  • Identify the most effective training delivery methods
  • Track results and provide advice for continuous improvement
