Training Format Review
There are various types of training available in the Microsoft Office marketplace. Below is a brief review of the various types:
Instructor led - Typically a small group of on average 6 delegates, with a PC for each provided. The trainer stands up front with a projector and guides the group through the content of the course. It is important for the delegates to have adequate skills for the course, such as basic keyboard, mouse and windows navigation skills. Courses run from 9:30 - 17:00, and include a lunch break. The course runs at a set pace, and covers specific material in a set time period. Reference material is provided for post course consolidation.
E-learning - An online website that allows you to learn at your own pace. Good for those that have the discipline to allocate time to complete the course. Requires internet access and depending on the supplier, the application software (eg. Excel) may or may not be required.
CD or DVD - Similar to e-learning, and does not require internet access.
Book - Available from various suppliers, including most major book retail stores. Self-study, with you working through the material at your own pace. Able to focus on relevant areas, rather than having to complete the whole book sequentially.
The above formats have various pro's and con's, depending on your situation. Many people may find making time in a busy schedule to skill themselves challenging, and may opt for taking a day out of the office to attend a full day of training. Others that are less time constrained, may find that self-study suits their style.
