10 Benefits of Instructor-led Training

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

  1. Personal interaction between the student and instructor as well with other students fosters an engaging learning environment.
  2. Course material is constantly evolving and new examples are added in a continuous quality improvement process.
  3. Students practice their skills in class and the instructor is available to answer questions.
  4. Instructors can adapt to different learning styles and student requirements.
  5. Live instructors can provide valuable insight and real-world examples.
  6. Dialog between the instructor and students can result in other useful information being discussed or a concept being clarified.
  7. Classrooms provide a social environment where students may network with other students with similar requirements.
  8. New and unique courses can be developed quickly which may be difficult with other delivery methods requiring a more time-consuming development process.
  9. Because students are engaged in the learning process, completion rate of instructor-led courses is 10 to 20 percent higher than that of eLearning courses (according to a California State University report).
  10. Students are able to focus on the training by getting away from the distractions of the office (for live classroom courses).
