We Card Best Practice No. 3: Computer-based Training

07/2020

Training every employee in person can be a challenge. Keeping track of new requirements for selling age restricted products requires constant monitoring and it’s easy to fall behind.

With new technologies, employers can offer regular training, new training and refresher training ON DEMAND. This means that rather than requiring a new employee to sit through a scheduled class or take time away from other pressing tasks, employees can take training at their own pace and sometimes from their home. 

And today’s online learning systems help keep everyone updated and is one of the best ways to make sure everyone knows what’s expected of them.  And, since the records are “in the cloud” they’ll always be on hand if you need them.

And a fun fact, did you know FDA guidance says that employers who train their employees on how to prevent underage tobacco and vapor sales should keep training and testing records for FOUR years?  That’s right.

We Card’s Online Training, for example, keeps employee training and test results for you so if you’re ever in a situation where you need to prove your employee was trained, those records are there.

Best Practice Number 3: 

Offer Computer-based Training to More Efficiently

Train & Track Employee Progress.

An effective employee training program should be available immediately for newly hired employees.  Experienced employees should also have “refresher training” opportunities while remedial training should be available for those who should have retraining after missing any key carding steps.
