Method of Training

Technological advancements have influenced the system of learning initiated at the institution. Whether undertaken remotely or at the training centre, the delivery of the course will be using a virtual tutor on a live server. As such, there will be increased efficacy in the learning process. The state of the art learning system allows the virtual tutor to effectively instruct and correct learner exercises, thereby promoting effective learning. This system of learning seeks to promote uniformity amongst the students who are learning remotely and those in the training centre. The virtual tutor will allow for flexibility in the quest for knowledge, and this will promote understanding. For those students who believe in the traditional live tutor system of learning, there is a tutor available at our centre in London to answer to all emerging queries. The live tutor is available at all times to respond to questions not effectively grasped in the virtual system.
