Do I need to bring anything else?
Just a positive approach to learning and a curious attitude! Some courses require answering a few questions. Everything else is provided at the course.
How do we get our supervisors/superintendents to do the training?
A question that gets asked at most courses – and a difficult one to answer! Here are some strategies to encourage their participation:
Highlight the benefits: Clearly communicate the benefits of the training to the managers and supervisors. Explain how it will enhance their understanding of the work being done by their team members, improve their ability to provide guidance and support, and ultimately contribute to better overall performance and results.
Emphasize the impact: Illustrate how their involvement in training will positively impact their own career growth and development. Show how a better understanding of their team's work can lead to improved decision-making, more efficient processes, and increased team productivity, which in turn can reflect positively on their own performance.
Provide flexible options: Offer flexible training options that accommodate their schedules and preferences. Show them both the public and onsite options. Flexibility will make it easier for them to fit the training into their busy routines.
Talk about the interactivity: Explain that the training uses case studies, real-life examples, and practical exercises, discussions, and group activities to encourage active participation and create a collaborative learning environment.
Is there a discounted accommodation rate to stay at the hotel?
Yes, there is. We will provide the details to you when we confirm your registration.
Is there any pre-training preparation required?
Depends on the course. Some courses require you to complete a questionnaire.
What are start and finish times of the training?
Very much depends on the course. However, as a general guideline, each day starts at 7.30am or 8.00am and finishes at 4.00pm or 4.30pm.
What is the dress code?
Casual, casual, and casual! You are offsite or out of the office for a few days. It’s important to prioritize comfort, especially for longer training sessions. Choose clothing that allows you to move comfortably and doesn’t restrict your movements.
What is the networking evening?
Glad you asked! At the end of day one of all our public courses, we invite all students to join the instructor and us for drink and a chat. This gives everyone that chance to get to know each other better, and to reflect on the day’s learning, share stories and experiences. For many students this opportunity is one of the highlights of the training course.
