Well presented and factual , did not deviate from the content.

I found the Zoom session far better than when I completed the training in person. A lot less stressful and the online is very user friendly. I appreciate that the session tries to limit the amount of interaction from outside creating distractions

Frequently Asked Questions

WorkSafe Connect’s Virtual Training is live, real-time trainer-led delivered in an interactive online environment.

Our virtual training is the same great learning experience that our face-to-face training is known for, just delivered differently. By way of overview of what our virtual training involves:

  • They are real-time video-led sessions where our trainer presents to the group and guides the students through the activities and assessments.
  • It is delivered via the Zoom or Microsoft Teams platform, which allows students to interact with the other students as well as the trainer (including break out rooms for group discussions).
  • Students complete their assessments and activities via our online web-based Learner Portal. The trainer marks the assessments throughout the session and assists students who need to reattempt questions that were incorrect.
  • In order to complete the virtual session, students need to have access to a computer or laptop (not a tablet), webcam, headphones and reliable internet.
  • Students complete the course requirements during the session and are issued their certificate soon after if they successfully completed their assessments.

Many participants have commented that they actually prefer this delivery method to traditional face-to-face as we limit our class sizes to 8 participants maximum and there are numerous ways in which to interact within the session.

To participate, participants are required to be connected to the internet via desktop computer or a laptop device with a camera, microphone and headphones. Please see the Course Delivery section above for full details of what you require.

If you would like to discuss delivery options in more detail, then please get in contact with us and we would be more than happy to discuss your requirements and options with you.

Permits are documents that authorise the work once adequate risk assessment has been undertaken and the level of control has been put in place to reduce the severity, likelihood and potential of an incident occurring.

Workers must be instructed on its contents before work can commence to ensure they are aware of and understand details of the work and its associated hazards and controls.

This will depend on the jurisdiction you work in. Generally, legislation and Australian Standards will outline the requirements and may include, but not limited to: confined space work, working at height, hot work, excavation, live electrical work, vehicle access, radiation, exiting an EWP.

Legislation outlines that a competent person must issue the work permit.
