Online training is the practice of teaching through the internet, from anywhere in the globe to targeted audiences who choose to learn a particular subject. For instance, ISO 9001 standards. 

Here are some of the main advantages to adopt online training courses for your employees. 

It is important to stay up to date with the newest developments, standards, and initiatives. The best way to do this is with constant training and learning. However working a regular 9 to 5 can make it difficult to find time for extracurricular if you have to set aside time during the workday or worse come in early for in person training. Sometimes going to the training center may rob your weekends and eat up your free time. Online training courses can be taken anytime, anywhere. The only requirement would be an internet connection.

Cost Effective 
With all these physical books, notes, and professors to handle courses, traditional software training courses demand a very high price for certifications and course completion. Instead, eBooks and notes are permanently saved in your hard drive when it comes to online training. Certifications are provided online, in printable format, with course completion recognition that can be shared on job-posting websites, social media, and more. Reference videos, course materials, and examination scores are saved and can be viewed multiple times, with no limit. Online courses are extremely cost-effective and can be utilized efficiently.

Support when you need it

Have you ever forgotten to ask a question while in training and by the time you see the trainer again, you've forgotten the question? Professional educators and eLearning customer support are always looking to help and motivate students. Online course trainers can be emailed and interacted with outside of normal office hours. when students have any questions. 

Online courses help trainees retain and remember information with images, videos, easy to read fonts, and more. Real-life examples are often given to explain concepts better. Displaying information in well-crafted ways lead to better understanding of learning content more than taking notes with pen and paper. Face-to-face instructor-led training can force trainees to deviate from topics because of long lectures, where speech is the major mode of communication.

While some people prefer a face to face learning environment, there are clearly some benefits to online training. Contact us for more info on online training course we offer. 


In the mid 1980’s when ISO 9001 made its debut, Dr. Deming was dismayed at the prospect of standards ever being the solution to competitive quality in the U.S. But with the redesign of Element 5.1, if only 30 years late..., I think he would feel like we are finally getting it right. Like it or not, most organizations today are bound to meet and address the requirements of these management system standards, a whole different article…

Point #7 of Deming’s Total Quality Management Principles:

Adopt and institute leadership

ISO 9001 5.1 Leadership & Commitment
