5 Reasons We Prefer Training Online

At Safe Ministry Check we know that your time is precious. As we all know, there are so many things to do in day to day life. There are always things that we need to take care of. Things like work, ministry, shopping, cleaning, washing, picking up milk, driving, caring for loved ones, looking after the kids, cooking, helping with homework. All of these things take time. Dropping an extra thing on top of that either means there’s no time to rest, or the other things don’t get done.

We know that taking time out of your busy week or your day off to do hours upon hours of training is a burden. One of our goals at Safe Ministry Check is to take away that hassle. Our goal is to make Australian churches safe places for vulnerable people, and so we’ve taken everything we can from our research and partnership with Ansvar Risk and put it into the system we have developed. That includes online training, which we know is the best option for Australian churches busy with so many other responsibilities.

Not only does online training have advantages for people being trained, but there are also a myriad of great reasons we use it for the sake of Safe Ministry people in your church.  If you’re interested in finding out about which courses we have available at Safe Ministry Check, then you can find more information on our website, particularly the available courses page.

#1 – Anytime

Safe Ministry Check loves online training because it means that courses are available at any time. It’s flexible to fit around your busy schedule. Mix this with engaging, enjoyable, and interactive content, and you have the perfect combination.

Our goal is to make Australian churches safe places. Having training available at any time means that your trainees can fit things around their busy schedule. They may even meet up with a friend for a coffee to do their training together.

#2 – Anywhere

Have you ever had a training day for work? Or maybe even a staff conference that you need to attend? Travelling any distance for training can be a hassle. What if you were to take the need to travel out of the training? That would make a world of difference.

Not only does it make things better for the petrol budget, but it also means that you can do your training in times when you’re free from other distractions. All you need is an internet connection. On the bus or a train? Waiting for a friend to join you for coffee? Sitting on the toilet? That’s the perfect time to do your training. This is much easier than having one set time when everyone in your church needs to be free, which leads us to the next point.

#3 – Less organisation

If you’re the safe ministry officer at your church, you know how hard it can be to get more than 2 people in a room together for training. Not only does it require organisation, but you have to set up rooms andAV equipment. And if you’re bringing in a trainer from another organisation, then there’s even more to organise. When you do your training online, none of these issues remain. Things happen when you want or need them to happen. The only organisation it takes you is to send out an invitation.

On the Safe Ministry Check System, that is one click.

#4 – Faster

All the training in under two hours. Less if you’re just a leader.

#5 – Accessible for All People

Anyone with access to a device and the internet can join in on training. This means potential barriers like wheelchair accessibility, language, or other circumstances can be put to the side. Everyone is able to join in no matter who they are or where they are.

Isn’t online training fantastic?
