Induction training is important for every company, particularly in the area of work, health and safety, where it’s necessary to educate staff and visiting contractors about potential health and safety risks.
Induction training is normally provided face to face at a company’s site. It’s a time-consuming process to coordinate a trainer and the inductee and the record keeping of who has been inducted is a manual process. An inductions need to be repeated every 1-2 years depending on the site and with manual record keeping it’s hard to keep track of when someone needs to be inducted again.
Why is it Important
Companies that work in high skilled areas need to provide evidence that they are keeping their employees up-to-date with current events, rules and laws (ie. accountants, financial advisers, bookkeepers, lawyers etc). There is a requirement for ongoing education and training for all of these professions and many more, but we’ve found that good companies that want to ensure their staff are all on the same page provide ongoing and regular education.
Even great organisations in the area of HVAC (Air Conditioning), electrical and plumbing put their staff through regular training to ensure they are up to date with new systems, features and operational procedures.

Is this a good business opportunity?
Training and Education is one of Australia’s biggest industries and it’s important in a knowledge-based economy (most developed countries). It is also very important in most professional services organisations to have a system of continuing professional development – ongoing training – as well as for Work Health and Safety, where if you DON’T demonstrate that you have informed workers of any risks you could become personally liable!
As training requirements increase you’ll be in a great position to keep creating new and better content and increase the detail in your courses. You can even use these skills to create your own online training business!
