4 tips on how to pick the best short training course

It’s important to keep your skills and knowledge up-to-date, no matter what line of work you’re in. With such a huge range of training courses out there, how can you know which one is right for you?

With sound guidance and some due diligence, you can avoid the pitfalls of choosing a second-rate training provider and you will know what strategies to employ so that you will be able to choose your next training provider wisely.

We have put together 4 tips on how to pick short personal training courses in UK:

  1. Identify the Course & Your Selection Criteria

To begin your search, you should start by getting a clear idea on the objective or purpose you have in mind for taking a course.

  • Is it an access course or one that you want to use to enhance already existing skill-set?
  • How much time do you have to devote to the course? Are you willing to travel, if needed, to complete the course? It is not unusual for operators to have to travel some distance for good training in most cases.
  • How much money are you willing to invest in taking the course?

With these things in mind, begin by building your own list of the type of course and the criteria that are important to you.

  1. Consider which teaching format will work best for you

People learn in different ways, and it’s important that you consider what type of teaching format will work best for your learning style. For example, would you prefer to have a more hands-on course in which you learn on the job, or would you work better in a classroom?

There’s no point doing the course if you’re not enjoying it, as you won’t be motivated to continue or do well. So make sure you do your research in regards to teaching styles.

  1. Seek accredited courses

If you are going to invest time in career advancement, you want to double check you sign up for an accredited course. Don’t waste time on courses that receive zero industry recognition. Instead, seek courses provided by industry recognised training providers.

Ideally, you want to graduate with a certificate or other qualification which is widely recognized in your industry.

  1. Find out whether your employer will help

This probably isn’t wise if you’re upskilling so you can move jobs, however if you just want to do your own job better, or are looking for a promotion, you may be able to persuade your employer to help fund your course.
