Ways to take an IOSH Managing Safely Course

Thinking about taking an IOSH Managing Safely course? Find out more about the different learning options available here.

June 2018

If you've decided the IOSH Managing Safely is the best course for you, your next important decision is to choose your studying approach. The two main methods of studying are online and classroom based training and the method you choose will largely depend on your budget, availability and motivation.

In this post, we will discuss the difference between online and classroom learning so you can make an informed decision as to how you take your IOSH Managing Safely Certificate. 

Online Learning

Online learning is a convenient, lively, tried and tested option of learning. If you can’t take time off work to attend a classroom course, or you prefer a more flexible method of learning where you are in control of when you work, the online IOSH Managing Safely course is the best solution for you.

IOSH Managing Safely online courses are fully accredited and offers the same certificate as a classroom course.

Duration of an online IOSH Managing Safely course

It’s recommended that you dedicate 24-32 hours to complete the IOSH Managing Safely course, with an additional 2-3 hours to complete the test and workplace practical risk assessment.

All you need is a reliable internet connection and a laptop, computer or mobile device and you are ready to study! Once you've signed up to your course, you'll receive access to your personalised learning website so you can start studying straight away. You'll have 6 months to complete your course and assessment. 

What is involved in Online Learning?

Online learning is an interactive learning experience that helps you learn health and safety concepts in an engaging and enjoyable way. You'll work through course materials that include animation, video, and audio, and apply what you've learnt by having a go at lively, work-based interactive activities. After each module, you'll have the chance to test your understanding with progress checks and revisit any harder topics. Even your assessment is taken online and will be available after you've worked through all of the course materials. 

If you happen to lose your internet connection, you can also continue to learn offline by downloading the PDF course notes - these also make a handy resource to reference once you've completed your course.

Online Course Features

It's important to remember that not all online courses are the same. The level of quality, engagement and support will differ between course providers, so it's always a good idea to ask for a trial of your course before you commit. Below are just a few features that we think are essential to ensuring a positive learning experience:

  • A dedicated online tutor to offer you support via email or phone.
  • Lively, interactive activities that are based on real workplace scenarios. 
  • Checkpoints at the end of each module with feedback.
  • Full-colour digital course notes to download for studying on-the-go.
  • A course that is fully optimised to run on all mobile devices.
The IOSH Managing Safely online course offers a revolutionary, enhanced learning method, designed for both professionals and businesses. Astutis’ team of industry experts, learning and graphic designers created the IOSH Managing Safely Simulation course.

Designed to offer practical, real-life challenges with an innovative learning style, the IOSH Managing Safely course implements elements of audio, visuals, animation, and gamification. You can access the IOSH course simulation demo here.   
 

Online Plus

 

IOSH Managing Safely is an essential course for Managers and Supervisors, but what if you have more than 1 member of staff who needs training? Training a large amount of people comes with its own set of challenges, even with something as flexible as online learning. So, we developed a unique approach to help businesses train groups of staff based around our online learning course. We call it, Online Plus. 

What is Astutis Managing Safely Online Plus?

Online Plus offers a more structured, supported approach by allowing you to add additional extras to your IOSH Managing Safely online course. The ‘Plus' part of the online course are the extras you can add to benefit and support your staff teams' learning, making the experience more company specific and personalised.

Online Plus is also used for staff that have a target date to successfully complete IOSH Managing Safely, and helps you plan and execute your studying efficiently. 

Online Plus features

  • Tutor-led class training on any aspect of the course content i.e. preparing for the assessments or integrating your company documents.
  • Webinars on any aspect of the course content.
  • Discussion forums online to share learning and ideas.
  • Detailed progress reports for staff.
More information for the Online Plus learning method for your staff can be found here.


Classroom Learning


 An alternative option of learning is classroom-based training, led by an experienced health and safety tutor. Classroom courses are held on specific dates at training venues across the UK.

Duration of a classroom IOSH Managing Safely course

The IOSH Managing Safely classroom course typically lasts 3 days. There is a short multiple-choice test at the end of the course, which will be done in the classroom. You then have 2 weeks to submit the workplace risk assessment.

Features of an IOSH Managing Safely classroom course

Classroom courses offer a more traditional learning experience. You'll be guided through the course by a tutor and you'll take part in discussions, group activities and question and answer sessions. What you get as part of your course varies between providers, but a good classroom course will always include:

  • Tuition and registration fees.
  • Course materials, including a workbook.
  • Tutor support. 
  • Lunch and refreshments.
The latest IOSH Managing Safely classroom course dates and venues can be found here.

The IOSH Managing Safely is also offered as a virtual course. Explore the different learning methods and discover the latest news here.
