in the virtual world
The increase in digital and remote training and professional development did not start with the coronavirus pandemic. However, the trend was certainly accelerated by the pandemic. DEKRA was quick to respond and transfer many of its courses to the virtual world. One example of this development is the safety training that is mandated by law.
DEKRA Safety Web is an online training portal for occupational safety, health, and compliance. It has been expanding continuously since its launch in 2015, with growth of significantly more than 60 percent in 2021. Over 220,000 online training sessions were conducted for more than 150,000 employees at some 3,000 companies in 2021 alone. Customers are found in various sectors such as the automotive industry, banking, transport and logistics, services, and the public sector.
