From the very beginning, TargetSolutions has strived to provide exceptional online safety training courses that educate employees, provide valuable continuing education units, and reduce organizational liability. Based on the number of course completions, that goal is being met.
Every year, the number of total completions jumps higher than the year before and 2014 was no different. More than 1.4 million online safety courses were completed last year, which was a 20 percent increase from 2013.
