The training offers both theoretical and practical instruction, ensuring that learners understand the importance of fall protection and can apply their knowledge to real-world scenarios. Additionally, the program emphasizes the importance of regular equipment inspections and maintenance to ensure that the fall protection systems remain effective and reliable.
By completing this course, learners will gain valuable insights into fall protection and develop the skills needed to prevent falls, reduce injuries, and save lives. With the knowledge gained, they will be able to identify and evaluate fall hazards in their workplace and select appropriate fall protection equipment to mitigate these risks. This training will help create a safer working environment for all employees.
Upon successful completion of fall protection training online, participants will receive a certificate of completion which they may download and print.
Testing on this course is designed to reinforce course material. Participants must achieve a mark of 80% or higher in order to receive their certificate of completion. If the pass mark is not achieved, participants may retake the course twice.
Online training allows operators to learn at their own pace, on their own schedule, and from the comfort of their own location. The training is delivered through an online platform that uses interactive content, videos, and simulations to engage learners and reinforce the concepts taught.
