Suresite Group has launched three new online courses for convenience retailers.

The trio of self-study modules cover the topics of manual handling, first aid and GDPR. They are suitable for all c-store employees, from new recruits to experienced members of staff.

With study times of between 30 minutes (manual handling) and 2-3 hours (first aid), each interactive course offers the option to stop and start when required. Modules can be completed on an internet-enabled PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone.

The manual handling online study course gives employees a good understanding of how to move, lift, push and pull objects safely and efficiently. It is relevant for employees working in retail environments like c-stores, supermarkets and petrol stations.

The basic first aid eLearning module introduces the importance of first aid in the workplace and helps employees to understand the responsibilities of both themselves and their employer.

The GDPR course teaches retail employees what they need to do when handling personal or sensitive information to comply with EU data protection laws.

Nick Healy, Suresite CEO, said: “All Suresite Group online training is designed to engage and stimulate convenience store employees. The interactive activities, coupled with real-world examples, ensure that all learners are able to engage fully with the material.

“By making the learning memorable, fun and interactive we can increase knowledge retention rates.”

All courses have been developed in partnership with Bolt Learning and each course costs £25 + VAT per trainee. Certificates can be downloaded upon successful completion.
