Our Courses are delivered to your browser from our Learning Management System (www.degrandsonLMS.com). You can choose any browser on any device (though a Smartphone screen is likely too small to be practical) at any time or place of your choosing. And with our Full Resume feature, you can end a session in mid Lesson (say on your work PC) and later (say, at home on your Notebook) you can resume the Lesson from the exact point where you stopped. Nice one, yes?
Our e-Training Courses deliver real-time interactive content in a secure web-based environment, and suited to the needs of the individual learner and of organisations of any size.
Learner-centred Content: Courses structured to engage and maintain learner interest. e-Training focussed on modern methods of adult education.
Full Audio Narration: every screen is narrated to reinforce, and add detail to, the information presented.
Closed Captions (optional): on-screen display of the full audio narration.
Many Visual Aids: flowcharts and diagrams to enhance and inform the visual experience.
Easy-to-follow Course Structure: Each Course is delivered in three modules – Module 1: Auditing Skills, Module 2: Knowledge of the Standard & Module 3: Scenarios. The modules are divided into a number of Lessons each of 15 – 20 minute average duration.
Course Materials (including terms and definitions): Each Course has its own series of support documents, flowcharts, diagrams etc. which can be printed or saved to your own device for referencing later or for easy searching.
FAQs: at the end of each lesson are the answers to frequently asked questions so that learners may benefit from the experience of other learners.
Quizzes: to complete each lesson there is a quiz to enable the learner to check the extent and depth of their learning. If incorrect or inadequate answers are given, automatic remediation takes the learner back to the areas of difficulty. The option to repeat the lesson is also available.
Online Examinations at no extra cost: at the conclusion of each of the three modules (sets of lessons) an on-line examination of 40 to 60 min is given.
Certificates Available Online: on successful completion of all three module examinations there is immediate online availability of the auditor’s Course Certificate.
Full Book-marking (i.e Resume Feature): learners can leave a lesson at any time and subsequently resume where they left off whether on a different day, a different location or a different device. The learner is provided with a true 24/7 learning experience – any place, any time, any device.
Yes, there are some. Three in particular…
- Self-discipline is required of the Learner. Self-paced study has the seeds of failure buried in it. It is too east for the Learner to put off until tomorrow what needs to be studied today. The learner must set time aside – 6 hours a week is a good choice – to do the Lessons. Working as a member of a group doing the Course and/or using an in-company training room for the purpose are also good strategies.
- No one-on-one interaction with the trainer. This is the reality of e-training. In anticipation of your likely questions, our Courses include many Quizzes and, in particular, FAQs from previous learners to address matters here.
- No group participation. Being able to benefit from the experiences of fellow learners on a conventional course is a real advantage. To compensate we include many scenarios in our Courses which provide a ‘real feel’ for the auditor in action.
