How can Icarus-ORM training help your performance?

Risk management training typically fails to produce results because there can be a lack of relevance. This isn’t because your employees lack the knowledge or skills but because many course providers do not understand how adults learn.

At Icarus-ORM we understand adults learn best when:

  • they understand why something is important to know or do

  • they have different learning styles – Visual (by seeing), Auditory (by listening) or Kinesthetic (by doing)

  • they are engaged in the learning experience

  • they are ready and willing to learn

  • they are in a positive and encouraging environment

Our training aims to enhance better decision making.

At times where the industry is looking to reduce the length of the “on-the-job” training period, effective learning is critical to effective operational risk management.
