NEENAH, Wis. — J.J. Keller & Associates’ library of more than 100 training videos — which includes several for school bus driver instruction — is now available through the company’s new online Video on Demand offerings.
Two options are available: a pay per view option that lets users pay as they go and gives them 72-hour access to the video via the Internet, and a video subscription service that provides unlimited online access to the company’s entire video library for a year. Both options include a free online record-keeping tool to help users track which employees have been trained and when.
Additional premium training content is included with the video subscription service and can be purchased separately with any pay per view video.
"J. J. Keller's new Video On Demand service will open up new opportunities for companies of all sizes to access great training content as often as they need it. With new content being added all the time, this will be a great way to keep a complete library of fresh training material constantly available at customers' fingertips," said Joel Landsverk, senior product development specialist.
The videos cover a wide range of transportation, workplace safety, construction and human resources topics. Officials said that all Video On Demand videos are developed by J. J. Keller's team of training experts, with experience in cutting-edge training techniques and safety and compliance content.
