Are you interested in taking an IOSH Managing Safely course and earning a NEBOSH Certificate or Diploma? What is the best route to take in doing this: traditional classroom-based training or online training?
In matters of learning, you best achieve it following the style that is most suitable to the type of learner you are. There are people who learn best in the traditional classroom setting. There is always a tutor to turn to for support and to make the process more dynamic. Anecdotes and lively discussions go a long way in making lessons easier to process and digest. If you like having the course pretty much spoon-fed to you, broken up for you in more manageable chunks as the experts deem fit for you, and delivered in the most engaging manner, then classroom learning is a great option. All these benefits rely on the teachers actually being good at their job.
However, having said that, it should also be pointed out that classroom learning isn’t the most convenient option, especially for those who already have full-time day jobs. Also, there are learners who don’t thrive in the classroom setting. This is where the benefits of online learning really shine.
Studying IOSH Managing Safely online is clearly the most convenient route to take. You may be a traditional learner, but if it’s too much work to get to the training venue and then commit a set time sitting through the course, you don’t really have a choice; you’ll probably go for the more practical option.
Convenience isn’t the only perk in learning IOSH Managing Safely online. eLearning courses are often cheaper as well. They are also more flexible, allowing you to learn at your own pace. You can follow your own schedule and rearrange it to accommodate other important matters in your life. You can do your studying in the dead of night, in the wee hours of the morning, during your lunch break — literally whenever you choose to. You can do it at home, during your commute, in a café — pretty much anywhere you can get Internet access.
Of course, online learning requires so much more conscious dedication and commitment. You need to have a high level of self-discipline to get all your work done in the time frame you allotted for the course. You have to be incredibly organised as you essentially added another ball to your juggling act. You probably already had work, family, social life, and other possible commitments to begin with, so make sure that you can work out a way to keep all those balls in the air and not drop anything.
Ultimately, traditional learner or not, your circumstances will dictate which option is most suitable for you. Either way you decide, we are able to help.
