Welcome to a New Way of Learning!
As businesses seek more practical and time-efficient learning opportunities for their employees, there has been a marked uptake in individual Virtual Instructor Led Training (sometimes called VILT). VILT is a revolutionary way to provide online training for individuals.
Why TRAINERS DIRECT LIVE?
In today’s busy world it is not always feasible to attend a full day of face-to-face training away from the workplace. VILT allows individuals to complete training without leaving their desks in easy to digest modules or tailored sessions.
In a traditional classroom course, there will undoubtedly be some topics which are not relevant to all the participants, by focusing on topics that the individual needs to learn reduces the amount of time needed to master a topic and results in improved retention and higher productivity.
All short sessions are delivered remotely and can be focused purely on individual or group needs, bringing the support of the traditional classroom into the workplace or home helping users to learn work related skills that can be applied right away using step by step instructions and labs.
Save Time and Money
Each 1.5 hr session can be tailored to the specific training needs of the participant and as a result, learning occurs faster than in a traditional classroom setting, saving businesses both time and money. Unlike self-paced online courses, a VILT one on one session enables the participant to ask questions and address any challenges in real time.
Need More Reasons?
Unlike self paced learning, our live online classes go beyond a lecture style environment and include many options to facilitate an interactive community of involved and engaged learners. All sessions can be recorded and sent to the participants after the course.
