Although MCIT has suspended in-person training and meetings with members for the health and safety of its and members’ employees during the COVID-19 pandemic, MCIT loss control consultants are providing tailored virtual safety and loss prevention training to members.
Using MCIT’s GoToTraining subscription or the member’s Web-based online meeting platform, MCIT loss control consultants can deliver training to a targeted audience, consisting of six to 100 employees. To participate, attendees simply need an Internet-connected device with speakers or headphones (e.g., computer, tablet or smart phone).
