About Video Courses

You will be able to take the v-course or assign it to someone else from your CCOHS e-commerce account immediately after you complete your purchase. Please note that if you are purchasing 100 or more v-course sessions, you will instead be provided with a Learning Management System (LMS) to assign and manage all your v-courses.

Upon successful completion of this v-course, learners will be able to print a certificate of completion. Those with an LMS will be able to issue certificates to their trainees upon verification of successful course completion. Learn more about v-courses.


What are the benefits of visual based learning?

The human brain processes video faster than it does text. The video course mode of learning effectively enhances self-learning and engages learners’ attention throughout courses. Learners can convert information to knowledge at their own pace, in manageable units, and re-watch and review material that is new to them.

What is a session?

A session is a full viewing or run-through of a v-course. If a trainee is not able to complete their course in one sitting, they may log-out and log back-in as many times as they like. However, once the trainee clicks Submit at the end of the course to register the training session as completed, the session expires.
