All our experienced trainers are CPD accredited. We are also a member of the Association of Healthcare Trainers (AoHCT) and a member of the CPD Group.
CTS stands for Corporate Training Services
(a) The face-to-face training which is classroom based, personally delivered by one or two of our very skilful and experienced trainers. All our trainers are CPD accredited and are dotted around the continent to facilitate quality face-to-face courses at relatively short notice.
(b) Online training. This is self-paced, meaning there is no trainer but the candidate is working through online material on their own in their own time, place and device. All they need is a computer, laptop, tablet or a smartphone, with access to internet or data. This option is especially suitable for those who maybe too busy to attend the face-2-face training because of work commitments, or those too far away from the centre. Some choose this simply for the freedom and convenience that it offers. After the payment has been received, login details are send by email, and then the person can start training straight away.
(C) Virtual Training. This is very much like face-to-face, but the trainer is seen on the screen rather than in front of the actual classroom. But the interaction is the same and you see and hear each other as in the normal class. The only difference is that the trainer is not physically there. The course takes two days exactly like the face to face. This is suitable for those who may be in different places and countries who can’t come to the face-to-face Centre. But it needs good internet or continuous data use for those two full days. We run virtual training sessions once per month or on demand.
Training fees are quoted based of a number of factors, ie:
- Number of participants
- Level of participants
- Client or CTS venue to be used?
- Duration of course
- Urgency of course.
The final quote can still be negotiated.
As above but is more cost effective as there are no logistic issues involved.
This depends on the package chosen. We have choice of two different models:
- Credits model
Our Account Managers will be happy to walk you through the different packages, advising you based on your needs.
This broadly varies depending on each person's circumstances, and how much time they are investing in the training. Some people with a bit more time will take less time to finish than someone with more commitments. The range is therefore from a few hours to weeks for some people
This is entirely down to each to each individual’s choice and circumstances. This is like asking ‘what is better, an orange or an apple?’ They are both delicious and healthy but different in taste and texture and colour. Down to preference.
