Personal Track Safety - Initial - E-learning Course
The PTS E-Learning course consists of a classroom based morning session led by one of our experienced Safety Critical trainers and will provide the candidates with knowledge of the topics which will be covered during the E-Learning programme.
The E-Learning programme takes up to three and a half hours to complete and concludes with a short online exam that needs to be completed by the individual.
Attending this classroom based course is optional and candidates wishing to undertake the PTS Initial course can do the e-learning section on their own if preferred prior to attending the Practical course. To do so they will require their Sponsor to register them for the course.
This e-learning course will be of benefit to candidates who are not IT literate and may not feel confident in their ability to undertake the e-learning course on their own.
Who Is The Course Suitable For?
