10 Benefits of Instructor-led Classroom Training

Although there are advantages to various delivery methods, instructor-led classroom training offers some key benefits:

  1. Personal interaction between the student and instructor as well with other students.
  2. Instructors can adapt to different learning styles and student requirements.
  3. Students are able to focus on the training by getting away from the distractions of the office.
  4. Live instructors can provide valuable insight and real-world examples.
  5. Students practice their skills in class and the instructor is available to answer questions.
  6. Dialog between the instructor and students can result in other useful information being discussed or a concept being clarified.
  7. Course material can constantly evolve and new examples can be added in a continuous quality improvement process with each iteration of the course.
  8. Classrooms rovide a social environment where students may network with other students with similar requirements.
  9. New and unique courses can be developed quickly which may not initially be available through other delivery methods requiring a more time-consuming development process.
  10. Completion rate of instructor led courses is 10 to 20 percent higher than that of eLearning courses (according to a California State University report).

Virtual Classroom Courses

Virtual classroom (VC) courses are available on request and involve a live instructor in a virtual classroom environment. This delivery method provides a viable alternative for clients in remote locations. Virtual classroom courses are arranged as custom training and are the same duration as ILC courses (unless customized by the client). For virtual classroom courses, Avantix Learning provides:

  1. A live instructor in a virtual classroom environment
  2. Sample and exercise files
  3. A course manual or published book to take away for review
  4. Certificate of completion
  5. Follow-up email support

The client provides a classroom at their location and computers with all required software. Course start and end times are determined by the client.
