BLENDED LEARNING “Making professional, world-class


safety training available to as many candidates in our industry as possible is a mission we are determined to expand,” said Brewer. “Each year we host the world’s largest safety education conference, AIMS International Safety School. It is an amazing programme filled with classroom and hands-on learning. But that’s not enough for everyone. By creating a safety focused blended learning programme we are able to offer organisations the opportunity to expand safety training to more employees and reduce the time, travel and expense required to send team members to out of town training. Blended learning is not a replacement for hands-on or classroom learning but it does save employers time and expense, and makes professional development available to a greater pool of professionals.” According to Megan Hartman, director

Aquatics industry training and consulting firm Ellis & Associates offers Pectora, a learning management platform for lifeguards as well as health and safety training. The platform, utilised by Splish Splash and hundreds of aquatic facilities worldwide, was designed to streamline training and reinforce key principles that reduce drowning. “We have utilised E&A’s blended learning programme to prepare our lifeguards for on-site training - positioning them for success when we are clear to begin on-site training,” said Hartman. “Leveraging the learning platform, especially important this year, will allow


us to get guards on stand more quickly and shorten classroom time.” The programme utilised by AIMS International, as well as the one Splish Splash uses, steps up the blended learning concept by offering recognised continuing education units (CEUs) and certification management. Programmes can be purchased “off the shelf” for general training topics, customised to incorporate your current training materials or designed from the ground up to meet your organisation’s training needs. The amusement industry has always worked to make training part of the show. Now more than ever, our creativity and ingenuity will help us meet the unique challenges of our ever-changing world.
