Online Courses

Online Courses

Now that we are fully immersed into the digital era, online courses can be beneficial for so many reasons and with the learning outcomes and certifications being exactly the same as face to face there is no better time to try it.

Why have TAP chosen to offer wholly online courses? The methodology behind online course delivery is that it helps to reduce costs associated with lost trainer time and physical travel - but with no loss of learning quality. This approach also minimises the Carbon Footprint whilst providing your delegates with the flexibility to manage their learning at a time and place that suits them.

We have had enrollments from all over the World, including:

Australia, Belgium, Canada, China, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Dubai, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, India, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Portugal, Saudi Arabia, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, UAE and the USA.

The courses that we are currently able to offer wholly online are:

How do the blended courses work?

A course is considered blended when various elements of the course are delivered using different tools or in environments. Your blended course will be divided into parts, weeks or modules. We refer to these as Part 1, 2, 3 etc. All of these parts make up the whole course. If you have any more questions on how they work, please check your joining instructions or get in touch.

Is there preparation work/evening work involved?

What if I can’t complete all my preparation before the course?

It's really important that you complete any preparation before the start of the course as it's designed to help you get the best result from the course. However, we understand that life and logistics can get in the way sometimes. Our venues open at 8.30 am and have quiet areas where you can work to put the finishing touches to what you have started.
