CeMAP distance learning courses are a great alternative to a full time training course. With distance learning growing in popularity, there are a number of providers. There are several ways to spot a quality distance learning course, but often potential delegates will start by asking a provider what the pass rate or success rate of a course is. When asking this question, there are a few things to bear in mind when you consider their answer.
Success Rates: CeMAP Distance Learning vs Full Time Courses
First of all, consider how high the full time course pass rate is. A reputable training company should have a high pass rate for this sort of course. Looking at the statistics, there are a number of reasons why this would be. Delegates are showing a high level of commitment on a full time course. They may be on the course because their employer needs them to pass it or they have taken time off from work and are paying for the course from their own pocket. Therefore, their investment in the course is higher. A course provider will usually follow up with every delegate and confirm how they have done in their exam.
CeMAP distance learning courses are a whole different kettle of fish. The cost investment is lower and they are naturally easier to fail. This usually has little to do with the course. The first pre-requisites of a distance learning course are commitment and self-discipline. Distance learning means the course will be done over a period of time and must be fitted around other things in a person’s life. Therefore, not everyone finishes the course. A course provider will find it more difficult and costly to follow up every person too, because one person may take six months to do the course and others may take two years.
Assuming a person does put in the effort and time required, there is no reason for CeMAP distance learning courses to be any less successful than a full time course. Make sure the course is a quality one and reap the benefits of CeMAP distance learning courses.
