Whether you are
investing in your own training or it is being organised by your
company, it is important that the learning method and style fits the
need. At Pitman Training Centres we have a good choice of
methods and styles to fit around your lifestyle or working life, so
you are spoilt for choice. Important things to consider are:
Full-time or part-time?
Beginner, intermediate or expert level?
At the training centre, your office or at home?
Self-paced flexible, tutor-led class, online, one-2-one coaching
or a mix?
training means the course can start at any time - so tomorrow if there
is a place free! You set your own hours and work at your own pace in
our relaxed, quietly focused atmosphere, supported by experienced
Training Advisers. There is a guideline number of hours for each
course which can be programmed over a few days, weeks or months.
You progress at your chosen pace dependent on your aims - you can do
it full-time and fast or pace yourself part-time around work or
personal commitments. You progress through your workbook, one module
at a time, at your own pace. You are in control - you can go
back and recap or skip through a feature you already know - the choice
is yours. Our centres are open all day Monday to Friday as well
as some evenings and Saturday.
