The Many Benefits of Online Training
Success Academy™ offers the many upsides associated with remote/online learning:
- Streamlining learning time – Online learning will save you money and effort by reducing time wastage. A recent article about the benefits of eLearning estimated that remote training eliminates up to 60% of in-person distractions resulting from:
- Situational disruptions
- Small talk & unfocused conversations
- Travel/commute times
- Restroom breaks, snack breaks, and meals
- Starting and wrapping up in-person sessions
- Increasing Engagement – Contrary to popular belief, online courses and webinars can increase information retention and employee participation. With games, interactive content, graphics, and illustrative videos, remote courses are a great way to boost users’ concentration. Our video tutorials are crafted and packaged for effective communication: succinctly relaying essential information about marketing, HVAC protocol, digital software, compliance procedures, and policy changes.
- Saving Money – The option of having your staff learn and stay updated online is budget-friendly. Instead of sending trainees and new hires to an in-person school, Success Academy™ will economically have them prepared for the job from the comfort of their home or your business’s location. This will cut out a significant portion of onboarding expenses.
- Mitigating Our Environmental Impact – As stated in a recent Articulate report, “distance learning courses consume an average of 90% less energy and produce 85% fewer CO2 emissions per student than conventional face-to-face courses.” Bypassing travel and paper printouts, Success Academy™ makes online learning eco-friendly.
- Guaranteeing Standardization –With in-person courses, instructor variability can lead to subtle and significant discrepancies in the quality of education. Online learning ensures that training and materials remain consistent. Exposed to top-notch virtual courses, you and your employees will all be on the same page. If any confusion arises at any point, your team will also have easy-to-access reference points for clarification.
- Elevating Confidence – In-person training can be intimidating for shy and anxious personalities. Online courses create a stress-free environment where trainees can take risks and ask questions without the fear of humiliation.
- Improving Connectivity – One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning Franchise Development locations are spread across the country. With Success Academy™, we have a single platform that can bring together each independent One Hour team to discuss major events, corporate developments, and/or breakthroughs in the HVAC industry.
- Offering Flexibility – With countless moving parts, it can be difficult for a franchisee to schedule training times that work for every employee. Success Academy™ conveniently provides a library of videos, seminars, and resources – accessible around the clock and via any computer.
- Providing Immediate Feedback – Online exams offer nearly instantaneous results. This is valuable for all parties involved. For franchise owners and employees, prompt feedback will let you know what areas to prioritize when studying. We use this analytic feedback to improve lessons that are not effectively conveying relevant information.
