This study found no significant difference between short term learning of safety topics in veterinary clinic regardless of whether face-to-face (FTF) instruction or computer based training (CBT) were used. The significant differences in the data were the time required and the satisfaction of the participants. The CBT was significantly faster but was not well liked by most participants. The FTF was preferred but required more time to complete. CBT appears desirable from a long term financial standpoint due to its ease of presentation and lower time consumption, however it takes longer to produce and is more difficult to change. FTF appeared preferable for employee satisfaction or if frequent changes to the training are required, however a qualified instructor is required and the training takes longer to complete which will raise training costs over time.
