What are the benefits of block training?
Block training has been designed to structure your learning around your available time and what times are best for you to learn.
Let me explain? You may normally work on afternoon shift and generally sleep until 10:00am in the morning. In this situation, an afternoon block would be best match your normal working conditions, therefore, you would learn best in the afternoon.
Why is block training important?
Block training is training time broken down into small manageable chunks. The information gained in this time period is only limited to your ability to take in the information. This way each block is structured to your personal training requirements.
At the conclusion of each block, your training is summarised by your trainer. This information can then be used to improve your skill based on the new found knowledge. Your new found skills can then be practised between visits.
Why block training instead of the traditional course structure?
Reason 1 - Fatigue
We learned many years ago that the more you exposed your self to large amounts of information over large periods of time, the more you experience fatigue.
In our experience, by mid way through the afternoon, the fatigue the trainee's experienced were at such levels that they wished to finalise the day. By the trainee's leaving early, they lost valuable training time which limited their opportunity to learn.
Therefore, traditional courses seemed to waste the trainee's time and money. Block training allowed us to provide a compact and concise training product at reasonable costs.
Reason 2 - Time
With busy life styles, people have so much to do in their day. It is not easy to find a couple of days free to attend training. With block training, all you need to half a day every now and then.
If you're in a hurry, we can even couple a few training blocks together (back to back) to help you meet your goals and timeframe.
Reason 3 - Money
Putting money together for a course is not easy. Who can afford $1000.00 in one lump sum. Block training allows you to reduce your lump sum exposure. Consider it as lay buy for training, but you get the benefit from your purchase when you pay out your hard earned money.
Reason 4 - Knowledge previously gained
Why attend a course for 2, 3 or 4 days when you may already have the skills required. Block training allows you to minimise your training time and expenses when you have previously acquired to skills.
Reason 5 - Only pay for the training and assessments you need.
Why pay for a free retest when you may not require it. Did you know that our competitors build in the cost of the retest into your initial course price. So if you pass the assessment on your first attempt, you have lost your money that was allocated to the extra testing.
