Several custom made courses will take you through their method of working – ensuring you understand the commercial aspects of their business and how not to compromise it or bring it into disrepute. There will sually be an employee handbook that governs the day to day beahvioural aspect of working for them. Adhering to these two alone will constitute part of the contract of employment. But beyond these there will be benefits for home study in the career area you find yourself in, Take finance for non-financial managers – this would involve a no nonsense course to outline business finance issues, enabling you to get the knowledge needed for perhaps owning our own business too. Understianding all the things like capital gains tax, data protection, dealing with HM government and all thoses related subsidiaries. It woudl also be very helpful to many sole traders who generally start off in a hobby capacity and then business takes off but their knowledge base remains at low level. This often causes them to fail in latter stages for failure to comply with one of the myriad of financial rules. So an online finance course would be ideal.
