Classroom Courses

Classroom training is still considered the most effective form of learning as it removes distractions of everyday work and frees participants to focus on improving their skills and learning new content.

At DG Coach we recognise that taking time out to attend a course requires more investment from you and your staff, so we believe it’s important that the experience is enjoyable and set in a welcoming environment. We have designed our training spaces to be light filled and offer break out areas so that employees can check in on emails and return calls, as well as keeping them refreshed catering for lunch and refreshments on training days.

Other advantages to investing in our classroom training include:

  1. Expert trainers who make the learning experience engaging, interesting and enjoyable
  2. On the spot practical help and immediate support with correcting mistakes and explaining new content
  3. Practical and hands on learning of the tools and techniques covered in the content
  4. Ability to adapt examples of how to apply regulations to suit delegates
  5. Opportunities to ask related questions outside the set structure of the course content
  6. Valuable feedback on grey areas or specific concerns and application of the Regulations.
