E-Learning Training: Drug & Alcohol Free Workplace Programme
What’s ok and what’s not
30 minute individual interactive training module suitable for both managers and staff. The module is designed as an E-Learning substitute for the classroom training for the Staff Workshop. It can also be completed prior to attending a Managers’ Workshop, which will reduce that course from 4 hours to 2.5 hours. Individuals pay by credit card to access the module and will be given 3 weekdays to complete the course and review the material from the time of initial login. On completion a certificate will be issued to the individual.
