Our training methodology

As people don’t remember much of what they read or hear, our methodology relies more on the use of audio-visual impact which is more effective than the lecture style. Presentations, videos, and simulations methods have proven to be very effective for people to remember.

Moreover, doing and teaching are the best vehicles for learning and remembering. This means involving the trainee in the teaching process by interacting, through completing worksheets and inciting to explain and present what is acquired.

Training sessions are held either as public courses for 3 to 5 consecutive days in hotels venues in a conference setup or at the client’s premises as in-house courses.

We also handle Individual Training Programs (ITPs) for individuals requesting courses to be tailored to their scope of work or to their needs. These are one to one coaching style training available for most
