Forecourt expert Suresite Group has launched three new online courses for filling station employees.

The trio of self-study modules cover the topics of manual handling, first aid and GDPR. They are suitable for all employees, from new recruits to experienced members of staff.

With study times of between 30 minutes (manual handling) and 2-3 hours (first aid), each interactive course offers the option to stop and start when required. Modules can be completed on an internet-enabled PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone.
