What are Online Instructor-Led Courses?

Online instructor-led training is education that is delivered remotely using web-conferencing tools e.g. broadband internet and a laptop, desktop computer or other suitable device. While online instructor-led training may be thought of as e-learning because it is delivered by electronic means, it is classified as instructor-led training because it is utilises a “live” instructor.

Instructor-led online courses have been implemented by the CITB, NEBOSH and IOSH as a result of extraordinary circumstances impacting the regular provision of training to the construction and related industries during COVID-19 and lockdown. These remote online learning measures are designed to maintain a level of training in industry for existing operators, supervisors, managers and other workers in positions of responsibility for health and safety, ensuring a continued understanding of legislative changes and their impact on the workplace.

What is E-learning?

E-learning courses, also referred to as “online”, “digital”, or “on-demand” training, is training that is delivered by electronic means. E-Learning may consist of a snippet of content, a module, a chapter, a course, or a program, that is completed entirely online. Most e-learning includes a remote environment that allows course attendees to complete hands-on exercises/activities.

The fundamental difference between e-learning and instructor-led online training is simply that the online instructor-led courses are led by a live instructor and e-learning courses are not. E-learning conveniently allows you to learn at your own pace and in your own time in the comfort of your own home or workplace.
