In recent years, online training has transformed the aviation industry by enabling companies to enhance and streamline employee training across various stages. According to an innovative aviation e-learning platform Aeroclass, one particularly demanding stage that requires extensive training is employee onboarding.
While onboarding is usually costly and time-consuming, it is very important. “Outsourcing a part of this task to online training enables companies to save time for both trainers and newcomers,” explains Anca Gosling, Director of Training Content and Development at Aeroclass, a family member of Avia Solutions Group, the leading aviation business group.
“According to a Brandon Hall study, online learning requires 40% to 60% less employee time than classroom training, as it can be accessed whenever the student requires it and avoids interrupting workflow. Consequently, this approach saves time and enhances the quality of learning,” she says.
In addition, online training enhances the training process and enables trainees to acquire more knowledge. Anca Gosling notes that “a review of 83 studies that incorporated video elements into traditional in-person classes found that 75% of them reported an improvement in student learning. Online training empowers students to control the pace of their learning, allowing them to master the content without feeling overwhelmed.”
Moreover, in addition to accessing high-quality course content, companies can opt for training packages that provide a personalised selection of courses tailored to specific roles in the aviation industry or certain topics that can enhance knowledge. This customised training facilitates faster results, as it concentrates on the necessary information without wasting time and energy on irrelevant material.
“The past few years have demonstrated that online aviation training is a feasible option for businesses worldwide. It has become apparent that online training streamlines the demanding yet crucial process of onboarding newcomers by offering a more efficient, flexible, and cost-effective training solution,” – said Anca Gosling.
