How can a women's security course be for everyone? Isn't it just for women?
Every person's safety is a priority no matter their gender. But, we know that gender does play a role in violence and crime that has to be considered. Some people may even be more vulnerable than women due to being transgender or LGBTQ+. Our course considers this and the learning applies to people of every gender. Men, or those who identify with a non-traditional gender, will learn how gender plays a role in their own safety and that of their colleagues. No one is safe until we all are safe.
I have a very poor internet connection. Can I still take the course?
Yes! Using our iOS and Android apps, participants can download the course modules when they have access to internet, complete it offline and their progress will automatically sync when they reconnect to the internet.
What do you mean by e-Learning?
E-Learning is a specific type of online learning where participants are able to engage with the course through quizzes, activities, scenarios, and a range of media. E-learning is different from remote training (such as through Skype or Zoom) and online videos or slides.
Our organisation would like to enrol a large number of staff. How do we do that?
If your organisation has 5 or more people you wish to register for this course, we can easily register them in bulk. We offer discounts for all groups over 5. Contact Safer Edge directly at email@example.com to register or learn more.
How long do I have to complete the course?
We realise that different people learn at different speeds and each of us will have different circumstances which influence how quickly we can complete the course. We encourage everyone to the course within a month. However, each course purchased will remain on Safer Edge Learn for a year.
Can different staff in the same organisation take different types of online WS4E courses?
Absolutely! We offer 2 types of online Womens' Security for Everyone (online and blended) to offer organisations more options for training more staff who need it. The type of course chosen will depend on your budget, location and availability but you have assurance that all staff are reaching the same learning objectives.
