The trio of self-study modules cover the topics of manual handling, first aid and GDPR. They are suitable for employees in every kind of retail environment, from convenience stores to forecourts and supermarkets.

Nick Healy, CEO, said: "All Suresite Group online training is designed to engage and stimulate retail employees. The interactive activities, coupled with real-world examples, ensure that all learners are able to engage fully with the material.

"By making the learning memorable, fun and interactive we can increase knowledge retention rates."

All courses have been developed in partnership with Bolt Learning and each course costs £25+VAT per trainee. Certificates can be downloaded upon successful completion.
