Abhisam informs us that they have just released a new Confined Space Safety e-learning course today. This course is their popular XPRTU format, which measn it can be accessed online via any device including a smartphone, tablet, ipad or a standard PC/Mac or laptop. It can also be downloaded and installed on any Windows PC. The Enterprise versions allow organizations to train large numbers of their workers, in a very cost effective manner. Workers can learn this topic on the go without spending a day attending boring classroom sessions. This allows companies to quickly train their workforce and also gives them a way to comply with OSHA norms, since they get a complete training record of all employees who take the course. This is great for proving that they did the training.


The course is a mix of text (with full audio narration), animations, video and self assessment that can be taken before the main certification exam. The course duration is 4 hours  and is available for the learner 24/7 until the subscription is active.
