NEBOSH Training - Classrooms Courses and Distance Learning Routes
Studying for a NEBOSH training course in a classroom setting:
This option involves traveling to a venue to a course organised by a recognised trainer. Most of the UK NEBOSH training
options are available via this method and you do get the advantage of being taught by an experienced trainer.
As NEBOSH training
is both intensive and expensive it is best to consider carefully, how you as a delegate learn best. Some people find the classroom environment stimulating and exciting as they are able to ask questions as they go along, bounce ideas off of other delegates, ask for clarification if there is anything they are having problems with and query how the theoretical points apply to their own practical experience by requesting examples.
However some delegates prefer to learn at their own pace, in a quiet environment and in this case the distance leaning option is worth considering. Studying for a NEBOSH training course by distance learning.
This NEBOSH training
option involves studying in your own home, with the pack of learning materials provided.
This type of learning does require the delegate to demonstrate commitment and take a focused approached to their learning, but it also provides a greater amount of flexibility as many trainers let the learner gauge whether they feel they are ready to take the exam at the next scheduled point. If the delegate does not feel confident, they can chose to defer to the next exam, whilst incurring no additional cost, as long as they do this in line with the trainer’s terms and conditions.
Although the view that distance learning is an isolated pursuit can put people off this option, technological developments such as email and on line forums, in addition to telephone support are being used to provide help and guidance on demand for NEBOSH distance learning students.
This distance learning option may also suit those delegates who have an essential onsite role and cannot be spared for the length of time a NEBOSH training
course takes (Depending on the course 2-4 weeks). It is also useful for those delegates who have family commitments which prevent them traveling to and from a training venue, or spending nights away from home for this amount of time.
The distance learning option is also a more cost effective choice, and in these times of recession makes completing the well respected NEBOSH training
more accessible, especially to those delegates who are self financing. How to decide which is the best option?
