I’ve just come across a press release from a company called The Project Agency who specialise in project management training (a topic I know well after 10 years of blue chip project management!). The Project Agency are seeing their new e-learning offering is quickly becoming as popular as the standard instructor lead training. Here’s an exceprt from the press release:
Project Agency, the project management training and development specialist, has experienced an ‘encouraging’ level of interest in its ‘Perfect Project’ e-learning materials.
Less than six months since the e-learning materials were launched, demand is rivalling that for the company’s well established training course of the same name.
The e-learning materials are based on the contents of Project Agency’s two-day training course. Over 14,000 delegates have successfully completed this course since it began running in 1997 – so, on average, some 1,000 people each year, or over 19 people every week during that period, have completed the course.
Ron Rosenhead, managing director at Project Agency, explained: “We developed the e-learning course for those who want to deliver projects effectively and with a high degree of success – and who prefer to study at a time and in a way that suits them best.
News like this is inspiration for all training companies out there looking to establish an e-learning arm to their business.
