Why is Esky different?
Our aim is to make the learning experience as dynamic and interesting as possible using animation and interactive games.
Our online courses are ideal for large or small businesses as well as single users. This is a cost effective method of training - there's no need to travel away from the working premises and it enables you to meet legal obligations for compliance.

Our courses were directed and animated by the 2011 BAFTA winners The Brothers McLeod in 2003, whose work has been seen on BBC, E4 and Channel 4, AtomFilms.com and at several film festivals.
The courses were developed using syllabus from the Royal Society for Public Health and are endorsed and audited by independent Environmental Health Officers.
Our core group of titles is now expanding and our latest course is an adaptation of Food Safety Level 2 to suit the needs of the food manufacturing industry.
About our e-learning courses
Esky e-learning courses are innovative and user-friendly training products. Our Food Safety, Fire Safety, Workstations and VDUs (DSE), Manual Handling and Health & Safety courses are available through this website. We also have induction courses, alcohol licensing and first aid awareness, as well as short refresher courses and sector-specific training such as Moving and Handling for the care sector.
Audited and approved by EHOs
Our course content is audited by independent Environmental Health Officers to ensure that our material is mapped against National Occupational Standards. We are also CPD certified.
Each course is divided into modules. The modules provide information in the form of animation and interactive games. The course doesn't have to be completed in one sitting, it automatically tracks the trainee's progress.
Testimonials about our courses »
Each course has a multiple-choice assessment (except for the VDU course which has a workstation self-assessment). The questions are randomly selected from a bank of questions. The assessment can be taken as many times as needed to pass. Once passed the trainee can print a certificate.
Each course provides a colour certificate once the trainee has passed a multi-choice assessment. The certificate can be printed directly from the course.
We have added an additional feature to our Food Safety, Health & Safety, Fire Safety and Hazard Awareness courses whereby, after successfully completing the assessment at the end, you are able to download a full set of course notes. These can be saved to your computer or printed out. They contain the key points from the course content and are useful as a quick reference guide.
For supervisors with multiple trainees we provide a management control panel. The control panel allows supervisors to add trainees, monitor their progress and print certificates.
