Introducing the NFB E-learning Academy

NFB Business & Skills is delighted to announce that it has partnered with e-learning experts, Totrain, to bring you our new and exciting digital health and safety e-learning academy.

The partnership matches the NFB’s extensive knowledge of construction with Totrain’s development expertise, providing flexible, high quality training when you need it with minimum disruption to your business.

The academy will be launched to the industry in September offering asbestos awareness, manual handling and working at height courses with more packages being made available over the coming months. All packages have construction relevant content and each delegate receives an NFB certificate upon completion.

For organisations looking to use the academy to train multiple employees, the NFB is able to offer a programme that allows the company to monitor the progress of their staff’s training in order to ensure compliance with regulatory requirements is maintained.
