Learning options

Provek’s classroom, blended and online learning options including modular formats will provide you with a cost effective way of maximizing your training budget and gaining the most coverage from any training expenditure.

You can choose from  up to four different learning options from Provek for many of our courses such as APM IC: Project Fundamentals Qualification, APMP, APM Risk Certificate and PRINCE2.

Classroom (single event)

Traditional 2 to 5 day event in a classroom setting with tutor led sessions.  Often some pre-course study will be required.

Advantages Disadvantages
Focused attention of delegates due to driven agenda Less opportunity for delegates to reflect on learning
Good opportunity to share experiences with other delegates Difficult sometimes to block out so many consecutive days in diaries
Many delegates prefer this option More expensive than blended or online

Modular classroom

Typically two 3 day modules for the APMP for example with 4-6 weeks in between.  Pre-course study will be required.

Advantages Disadvantages
More classroom time in total and driven agenda More time in total than the single event away from workplace
Opportunity to consolidate learning between modules Delegates may not use the time in between modules effectively
Fewer consecutive days away from the workplace Most expensive option

Blended

This option comprises study online on Provek's The PM Channel or through workbooks followed by a classroom element.  Typically 50 : 50 blend between self-study and classroom study. 

Advantages Disadvantages
Can focus the classroom time on application or revision Less opportunity for delegates to share their learning
Delegates can repeat topics at their leisure Not all delegates will have the right workplace culture for self-study
Lower cost than full classroom Self-study requires good discipline by delegates

Online

Using Provek's The PM Channel or workbooks, delegates study completely on their own.  Expert remote tutor support is provided by Provek along with excellent study materials.

Advantages Disadvantages
Total flexibility in both how many delegates, from where and when study No opportunity for delegates to share their experiences
Each delegate can study at their own pace Requires good self motivation and a receptive workplace learning culture
Lowest cost option High risk on not all delegates taking to complete self study option 

One of our key clients, Rebecca Meaney, from NATS comments:

"I’m delighted to say that using Provek blended learning we’ve had 100% success rate in our staff achieving their APM Risk Level 1 exam. It allows them to revise around their busy schedules and gives them the flexibility to learn when they want to. The classroom session is practical and insightful and Mike the trainer makes what could be a dry subject interesting and pertinent to day to day project management".
