  • Brilliant way to learn and get certified! I signed up for Knowledge Academy for a 3-day course on Business Analysis. I already had some years of BA experience, and recently been reading up books on the topic to get industry-wide understanding. This course was to formalize the learning and earn a certificate. What I found most useful was that although there were not too many new things that I learnt about from a theoretical standpoint (since I had already had some experience and been reading up), the case-study approach really helped underpin the learning. Applying the business models/concepts, discussing with others in the group and working through the scenarios really clarified things, and this is something that I found was not all that possible just reading by myself. I would definitely recommend this course for anyone who has some inclination towards a BA role. And I am sure The Knowledge Academy would be a great resource for other courses too. Well done TKA.By Mr Amit Ray (Asset Manager) from Manchester

  • Just finished my course with TKA in Birmingham and passed with flying colours. The course was challenging at times but then I suppose it is meant to be! The trainer Brian was really good and worked very slow so I could catch up easily. The price was also the cheapest I could find - which originally made me doubt the quality but actually, I can't fault TKA. Will be using them again.By Norma Carson (Business Analyst) from Birmingham

Classroom Based Training

Whilst online base training has many advantages there are also several hindrances to taking this approach. The most common being the lack of direct and immediate access to an instructor. Should you find yourself unable to progress or need clarification on an aspect of your course you would have to start an email correspondence and wait for a reply. This can be incredibly interrupting to your learning, especially if you find yourself motivated, enthusiastic and raring to go only to find yourself sitting around hoping for a swift response from your instructor.

Consequently, this is the biggest advantage to classroom training. In a classroom environment there is an element of teamwork and interaction that online teaching cannot replicate. The fact that there are others around you in the same situation can be a fantastic motivator, giving you instant access to the instructor and the opportunity to take part in debates and discussions about your course, reinforcing what you are learning along the way.

Unfortunately these advantages can pass by some students. It can sometimes be difficult for an instructor to recognise and engage some people, especially those that may be shy or introverted. Those who are more vocal can dominate discussions and potentially drown out the quieter members of a classroom, partly negating the advantages of the social aspect of classroom learning.

The biggest difference between the two, and the main reason that online courses have received a boom in popularity is that unlike classroom training, online courses can reach hundreds to even thousands more people at once in a swift and effective manner. This method ensures consistency in the course content, and for the companies training, a steady stream of data that helps them ascertain what is and isn’t working in their courses, helping them to develop, adapt, and provide a better service moving forward.

Ultimately, the decision of which approach to choose is entirely down to the customer. If you think that you have the desire and motivation to milk every last drop of learning possible from an online course, then it may just be the best approach for you.

However, if you prefer a social aspect to your learning and the possibility to bounce ideas off others in the same position as you, as well as instant and constructive advice from a tutor, perhaps a classroom based approach is the optimal route.

Fortunately at The Knowledge Academy we offer expert training in both approaches to learning. We have an efficient customer service department we do our best to ensure that you get the best result possible from whatever course you decide to take. When all is said and done, our priority is that you receive first-rate training that enables you to move forward better prepared and in a far better position than which you first contacted us in.
