Benefits of Virtual Classroom Training

The opportunity for apprentices to interact with trainers in a classroom setting offers a level of collaboration that is critical to effective learning. But traditional "stand-up" classroom training can be as inefficient as it is costly, especially for organisations with distributed teams and extensive training needs.

RPS addresses these challenges and more with virtual classroom training (VCT). VCT enables organisations to deliver the benefits of a highly interactive, fully integrated classroom training programme while overcoming the barriers of geography, travel costs and availability. VCT provides a cost-effective, two-way classroom learning experience delivered via the web for anytime, anywhere training.



Benefits to Learners

  • No travel required — Access to learning is available via the internet.
  • Support — All the support needed to complete the courses is built into the programme.
  • Learning experience — VCT offers a highly interactive, two-way learning experience.
  • Flexibility — Access to course materials is possible anytime, anywhere.
