These set of people are often experienced individuals who work in the safety department, or in other departments but with evidence of good knowledge of safety fundamentals.

DL-VC MethodologyThe idea of DL-VC is to combine both online and offline resources for the training of participants. While the virtual classroom is being developed, the method of training is described below:

The resources include training materials and videos, case studies etc that the participant can use offline for study at their convenience. Assignments will be given, to be done and submitted via dedicated email address.
In the course of the training, questions from participants will be answered through their emails, WhatsApp discussions and Facebook.By the time the Virtual Classroom is ready, participants can have real time interaction with online Instructors to answer questions and provide clarifications.
Continuous assessment will be done through assignments. Upon completing the course, the final certificate examination will be done online using our website. The participant will have access to the exam portal on the day and time of the exam. Whether Distance Learning or regular training participants, the exams will hold the same day for each course. Results will be displayed immediately after submission, or immediately the question time elapses, whichever comes first. The participant will receive notification of results in their registered email address.
After successful assessment, certificate will be processed. Hard copy certificate will be sent to participant via standard courier service anywhere in Nigeria. Printed copies of training manuals will also be included where applicable.
