Time was when, centuries ago, the idea of getting trained in a profession or trade was by going and staying with the guru for years in his or her abode. This was the forerunner to the concept of a residential school. The teacher used to be present right at the student’s access, and everything that needed to be taught was drilled down very stringently. Education was associated with complete dedication and discipline.
Fast forward to the present era. Not only students, but even those who have graduated long ago and are pursuing professions of their choice need trainings from time to time. This is to familiarize and upgrade them with the developments in the industry in which they work. Professional trainings need not be learnt by going over to the master’s residence and apprenticing oneself for years before being certified arbitrarily by the teacher, something that used to be done at the sole discretion of the guru, which, in many cases, would take a lifetime.
In a complete reversal of roles, today, it is the teacher or the expert, who goes down to the location of the student, or in this case, the professionals. Why do they need to do this? Simple: To save time and money and add tremendous value. This is the gist of the concept of onsite trainings. Let us examine how onsite trainings add value to organizations while helping them save on costs.
Features of onsite trainings
As we just saw, these trainings are situations in which the expert in an aspect of a profession comes to the location of choice of the professionals who seek expert learning. In other words, instead of many learners going to a location to hear the expert, the reverse happens: Onsite trainings bring the classroom to the learner. What are the advantages of doing this?
These are the various benefits and advantages of onsite trainings:
The choice of the course content is left to the participant:
This is by far the biggest advantage of onsite trainings. It is not the expert who decides what is to be taught, but rather, the organization that needs professional trainings. When this is the case, there is no question of even a single wasted paragraph, so to speak.
The participants decide the venue:
Another major advantage of onsite trainings is that the organization is free to decide where it wants the expert to come and deliver trainings. This is not the case with other modes of trainings, such as in-house seminars and webinars.
Imagine the difference between transporting hundreds of employees to a faraway venue and taking care of everything from their stay to food to travel and what have you, and getting a single expert to come down to the venue of the client’s convenience. This is what onsite trainings bring about.
Freedom of choosing the time of trainings:
Onsite trainings mean that the expert goes down to offer trainings to the organization when the latter wants it. The freedom of scheduling the training lies with the learner.
Brings about closer collaboration and teamwork:
This is a byproduct of onsite trainings. When employees come together to learn something of interest and relevance to them at one location, they are bound to interact more freely with one another, something they would not do in the course of their normal work routine.
