Course Reviews Are Important When Choosing the Right Training

Reviews Help Professional Training Courses

Course reviews are becoming more and more influential to those looking for training - and are helping training buyers find their perfect-fit course.

In a survey of our training buyer audience, 78% of people said that course reviews were a 'very important' factor in their decision-making process when considering training courses - in that those courses that had reviews received more views, interest and more feedback than those that don't have reviews. A further 20% of users stated that they sometimes considered reviews before they decided which training course was most suitable for them, and only 5% claimed that reviews were not important to them.

Review & compare sites are becoming more important to online consumers, who claim that reviews give them a real sense of try before you buy, and a valuable insight into a product before they part with their money. This also true in the professional training world. As users are looking for information to help them choose the most suitable course for their requirements - course reviews are playing a larger role than they were in the past.

Training courses that have the most reviews are distance learning & e-learning courses, which may be a result of users needing security from other users before they invest in this relatively new form of training. We're also seeing trends in our company training buyer personas who are engaging more with reviews and case-studies reviewing in-house training
