What's the difference between Blended Learning Workshops, traditional workshops and E-learning XPRTUs?

Blended learning is a blend of face to face training led by a lead instructor and access to blended learning modules that reinforce the training. At the end of the blended learning workshop, participants get a Certificate of Completion. They can opt to obtain a higher rated Certificate of Competency and electronic badge (depending on the course)

On the other hand, Abhisam E-learning XPRTU courses are completely standalone, self study courses, that require no instructors. This is because of the way that they are designed, which includes animations and simulations, text, videos, graphics, real life examples and assessments/exercises. After the learner accesses the modules in the course, they can take the Abhisam online exam and on passing, earn a Certificate of Competency OR a Certificate of Completion (based on the course), alongwith an electronic badge issued via Credly.

Traditional Classroom training workshops on the other hand are just that, learners attend the face to face workshop led by an experienced instructor, get access to the printed training material and get a Certificate of Completion.

When & Where are these workshops held?

The latest calendar can be found here. These workshops are held at multiple locations and times. You can elect to sign up for a location that is convenient to you. Of course, you can also contact us to arrange these at your own workplace/site/office OR simply buy the e-learning XPRTU based training, where you need not travel anywhere.

BLW 206 - LOTO ( Lockout Tagout) Training

LOTO is an acronym that stands for Lockout Tagout. Many accidents continue to occur in workplaces because workers and managers are either ignorant of LOTO procedures or the company management does not have a formal procedure in place. Any machine be it a pump, or a reactor with an agitator or a static vessel with steam heating, (just to give cite some examples) has several connections to it that give it energy inputs (electricity, steam, compressed air, etc) and material inputs (raw materials, Nitrogen, etc). These connections need to be isolated before a worker can start maintenance on it or carry out some other non operational activity such as a product change over. To prevent accidents while doing this, there have to be a strict adherence to LOTO procedures.

This classroom style face to face training workshop will help you understand these procedures and if your organization does not have them, it will help you to make your own procedures and systems. More details here.
