You have read about the benefits of taking an IOSH Managing Safely course, or perhaps you have personally witnessed a peer rise up through the ranks and attain more work opportunities after finishing the course.
You believe that taking and finishing the course will have a positive impact on your own career. Trouble is, between work and home, you have little time to spare for it. Plus, you have barely managed to scrape together just enough money to take the course in a learning institution.
Does that mean that you have to put your dreams of career advancement and attainment of better work opportunities on hold?
Not with the IOSH Managing Safely Online course.
The online version of the IOSH Managing Safely course offers a few key advantages that the conventional course does not offer. Chief of these benefits would be the savings that one can achieve, both in terms of time and money.
How exactly does an online course enable you to save time and money?
Compared to conventional classes, online courses are traditionally cheaper. The main reason behind this is that learning institutions do not have to pay as much in terms of overhead costs compared to their counterparts. These savings are then passed on to the students.
Apart from that, when you enroll in an online course, you may be able to minimise, if not totally avoid, some expenses like the cost of books, printing, and other school supplies. This is because most materials are available for free or for a cheaper cost in digital form.
Another advantage of studying online is that you can complete the course practically anywhere you have access to a computer and a stable internet connection.
Apart from enabling you to learn at your own pace, this benefit helps you save money on transportation. And it’s not just savings in the form of transportation cost that you can obtain. You can also avoid some of the hassles associated with traveling during peak hours.
Avoid lost wages
Unless you have saved enough money that would enable you to focus all your attention on studying, you will need to juggle work and studies to earn what you need.
And although many people have obtained some sort of balance between working and studying in a brick-and-mortar institution, the same people will tell you that they are barely keeping up with combining these two together.
When you study online, you can study at your own pace — during lunch breaks, before or after work, during the weekends, and the like. Quite simply, online courses can provide you greater flexibility compared to studying inside the four corners of a conventional classroom.
