The Greenkeepers Training Committee (GTC) endorses a Health & Safety online learning programme developed by one of its Quality Assured Training Providers, mylearnadfriend……

The GTC assisted with the launch of a unique health and safety on-line learning programme during the recent BTME in Harrogate.

The GTC and mylearnadfriend Ltd, a GTC Quality Assured Training Provider, are working together to provide affordable, accredited on-line health and safety training to all employees in the Golfing industry.

Middlesbrough based e-learning provider mylearnadfriend Ltd has created a unique online e-learning platform and the Safe Worker suite of accredited courses. This e-learning platform has captured the imagination of employers, trade unions, insurance companies and educationalists worldwide and is now available through the GTC.

An integral part of the courses is mylearnadfriend’s risk assessment training tool. This software has been developed to work in conjunction with 360 degree panorama photography to recreate any work environment on-screen which enables employees to identify workplace hazards and correctly assess them in complete safety.

David Golding, GTC’s Education Director, who has been instrumental in bringing this innovative health and safety online learning platform to the golfing industry said,

“This product simplifies the delivery of accredited training, reduces the time employees need to spend away from their work and makes excellent use of down time. It is cost-effective, leads to accredited qualifications and will improve safety standards across the industry. Everyone wins.

Tony Abbott, mylearnadfriend MD, said “Our product is attracting attention from FE colleges, a number of major international manufacturers, trade associations, institutions and private training providers. The platform also enables clients to develop their own bespoke training and is ideal for delivering product knowledge to customers. We are developing e-learning programmes for our International clients so that they can deliver product knowledge training to their customers in Europe.

“Now that our courses are available through the GTC website we can support the golfing industry. Our Safe Worker suite of courses will satisfy their legal obligations and ensure all their staff and volunteers are health and safety aware and certificated”.
