iLearn SME is an online training platform for small to medium-sized businesses, helping them achieve and remain compliant by giving them access to over 60 business-critical and health and safety-focused training courses.

Helping you help your clients

There are courses for employees at all levels, and new content is added regularly. An online training platform like iLearn revolutionises training for SMEs, getting rid of the costly and long-winded methods of training days, which often involve unnecessary travel and a lot of paper being used. iLearn SME avoids all this!

First-Aid course

Under the Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981, employers are required to provide adequate and appropriate first-aid equipment and facilities in the workplace. This is to ensure that employees can receive immediate attention if they get injured or become ill at work.

This could be an aspect that many small businesses don’t pay enough attention to, as they are busy with the day-to-day running of the business. This is where iLearn SME comes in, with a simple, 30-minute First-Aid course that is designed to equip staff with a solid understanding of the principles and procedures of first aid, and how to apply them in the workplace if an incident occurs.

The course covers a multitude of aspects of first-aid, including how to perform CPD, how to use a defibrillator, how to provide first-aid for someone experiencing an asthma attack, amongst many other things.

It’s important to note, however, that ‘adequate and appropriate’ can differ between workplaces, including whether trained first-aiders are required, what should be in a first-aid box, and whether a first-aid room is required.

Whatever industry your clients may be working in, first-aid training is always important and can make a huge difference, having people equipped to deal with incidents should they occur.

Cyber Security Awareness course

All businesses are at risk of cyber-attacks, but to small businesses, the consequences of a cyber attack pose a crippling threat. There are a lot of terms and phrases involved with cyber awareness, but it’s vital that businesses understand these terms and know how to remain cyber safe.

Managers and owners of SMEs can reduce the risk of successful cyber-attacks against their business by making sure that all employees are sufficiently trained on the subject.
The Cyber Security Awareness course on iLearn SME will give your clients and their team a better understanding of why cyber security is so important, the most common types of cyber-attacks, and how to prevent these attacks from succeeding.

The course also ensures that staff are aware of their individual responsibilities as employees, and that business owners know what the organisations responsibilities are when it comes to cyber security.

Absence Management course

Employee absences are unavoidable for all SMEs; everyone gets sick at some point and needs some time off. Some instances of staff absence may last a day or two, and some will be long-term sickness absence.

The Absence Management course on iLearn SME gives learners an idea of the absence problem, with 1 in 5 employers experiencing employee long-term sickness absence in the past year.

Both employers and employees will benefit from taking this key training course, and will gain a stronger understanding of why absence management is important, the cost of sickness absence, and various principles and approaches relating to absence management.

Furthermore, this 30-minute course will discuss relevant legal documentation, including the Equality Act 2010,the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, and the Disability Discrimination Act 1995.

Make absence management easier for your clients with this bite-sized iLearn SME training course.

Fire Safety course

The importance of implementing good fire safety procedures in the workplace is self-explanatory, but again, possibly something overlooked by some small business owners due to many other things on their priority list.

Your clients are likely aware of the importance of fire safety, but may be lacking the right knowledge in regards to local protocols and fire prevention strategies. iLearn SME’s Fire Safety course has been created to give small business owners and their team a sufficient understanding of the various aspects of fire safety in the workplace.

From identifying fire hazards in the working environment and the different types of fire extinguishers, this 30-minute course will put your clients’ minds at ease, knowing they’re doing all they can to promote fire safety at work.

This course will also teach clients how to effectively practise and promote fire prevention, as well as how to take the correct action in the event of a fire breaking out or if smoke is detected.
