I’ll start by diffusing a little myth: It is not a legal requirement to hold a particular accredited training certificate to work on site or operate a specific piece of equipment. In fact it’s not a legal requirement to have accredited training at all.
What is required by law is that employers must provide adequate training to ensure the competence of their employees. This responsibility continues that employees should receive on-going support, advice and guidance such that they are able to complete their job and its associated work tasks without risk of injury or harm to themselves or others.
E-commerce design is very different from regular website design. An e-commerce web site has to serve two main purposes, the first one is to meet the needs of customers and the second one is to sell more products. Web consumers generally become easily distracted and quickly lose their patience. The key is to focus more on usability and less on cool but complicated features. As soon as they arrive at your online store they should already have a good idea of what to look for, your job is to let them find it in as little steps as possible. Last but not least the words and images on your product pages should convey a clear message of how wonderful the product is, its features and benefits.
The homepage is by far one of the most prominent pages on an ecommerce website. There might be many pages on the web site that serves as the landing page, however none of them can be used as effectively for announcements and promotions as the homepage. E-commerce design for a homepage has to be both clean and simple. Fancy flash animation and other animated graphics will only frustrate visitors. The main content area should contain either one large image, separate areas for images or text or a slideshow to display multiple images. This section is best used for featured products, top sellers, new arrivals, promotions, discounts or special offers. Eye catching images, striking colors, catchphrases and a sense of urgency are all commonly used in the homepage. Use your creativity to make the most out of this page.
