4) The material is always current and is updated as information changes. You’ll always get the latest information, from leaders in education and the training arena.

9) You will be able to document your learning outcomes.
10) You can create a personal development plan that is flexible, doable, and tailored to your needs — and still stay within budget.
In today’s changing economic climate many organizations are looking for ways to deploy training with minimal cost. Having an instructor-led training can be expensive, with costs including instructor fees and travel related expenses.
Additionally, instructor-led training isn’t always as efficient as it needs to be, considering the logistics of planning and delivering on-site courses and the need for targeted participants to be away from their jobs at the same time.
Organizations with satellite offices have the flexibility of providing training without the expense of bringing everyone to one location. The outcome is a cost-effective method of providing training to larger numbers of employees.
