Physical Classroom

Safeguard physical classroom study allows you to get away from the distractions from workplaces and homes to enable concentrate on your training until completion. It provides learners a great opportunity to condense their study within the training the days compared to our Distance Learning Program which can be studied over a relatively longer period. Learners also have the option to take the examination within the study period or any other convenient available examination date. The classroom setting allows learners to learn in our safe, quiet, clean multi-media training laboratory, away from the noise and pressures of their work or their homes. Again, learners could be large which allows the classroom environment to provide the important “human touch” that teaches learners how to interact physically with one another in a professional, productive and cooperative way which is often missing in distance learning program.

We can also arrange an executive package for organizations that desire a top-class welfare package for their employees. We can visit your workplace and deliver the course at a time and place to suit you in the form of in-company training. This is an effective way of training several delegates at the same time, saving on time and travel costs. The biggest benefit of in-company training is the location. Organizing training off-site can be difficult for some employers, especially if you have a large team to get through a course. On-site training means less travel time and are much more convenient for your employees. Hosting a course, yourself also means last minute changes can be made to attendees. For example, if someone suddenly becomes free to complete some training, at least they will be in the right place already. You may want to do this so that lessons tie in with your own policies and procedures, or even just change the learning pace to suit your employee's schedules. There are benefits to your business too by hosting training in-house; employees do not have to spend unnecessary time away from their jobs and can instead clock back to work as soon as the training is complete.
