OpenSesame Releases Free Flu Prevention Online Training Course

Portland, OR (November 17, 2015) – For Immediate Release

In response to the anticipated flu season this year, OpenSesame (, a worldwide resource for business training courses and XeniumHR, in partnership with Kantola Productions, is pleased to offer a free online training course for flu prevention for the next 30 days.

According to, nearly 111 million workdays are lost due to the flu each year. The Centers for Disease Control reports that while flu severity varies from season to season in the United States, they recommend being proactive in all prevention efforts. To help assist businesses during the annual flu season, OpenSesame and XeniumHR partnered with Kantola Productions to distribute a short but comprehensive health education training course that companies can use to keep their employees safe and healthy.

The interactive 20-minute course explains the flu and how it spreads; tips for staying healthy when working with colleagues and customers; how to reduce flu exposure; and steps an organization can take to reduce the spread of flu in the workplace.

Kantola Production’s significant industry expertise and award winning course production values made the partnership on this project a natural fit. XeniumHR joined to help widen the reach of the elearning course with additional distribution to their network of small and medium sized businesses.

Employees can visit to preview and take the free course. Organizations can also use OpenSesame’s CourseCloud™ to send email invitations to all of their employees for the course or they can download a SCORM file to use the course in their corporate learning management system.

“As the world’s elearning marketplace, we support organizations as they create teams of effective employees,” said OpenSesame CEO Don Spear. “The first step for any company is keeping their people safe and healthy. This flu prevention course will help companies promote healthy workplaces and maximize productivity.”
