Choosing a Business Certification Training Provider
Whatever industry you’re in, it can be a challenge to find a good business certification training provider. There are many choices out there, but how do you pick the best? What issues should you consider?
These tips should lead you to the answers:
Seek referrals but be careful whom you ask.
Many people will tell you they had the best course ever without even having something to compare it with. Not having had similar training in the past, how can they claim it’s the best? If they took a lot of courses with the same training provider, how can we ensure that their opinion is objective? People who’ve completed the same or similar courses from different providers are the best sources of referrals.
Explore their website.
Even a one-man-band can make himself look Fortune 500 just by having an exquisite. It’s totally different when you have someone with a bad website. Whoever wants a bad website? A bad website is one where contact information is a mobile phone number and a Yahoo/Gmail email address, a page leads to a 404 Error message, bad quality photos, and spelling and grammar errors abound. Training providers are in the business of education and have no excuse to have questionable literacy skills.
Ask what accreditation they offer.
There are three types of accreditation training courses can have – external accreditation, approval by a trade body, and in-house certification from an independent provider. It may seem like external accreditation is the “highest” of the three, but take note that accreditation type alone does not indicate credibility. You should also consider the training provider’s quality assurance systems. External accreditation is not a guarantee.
Check the price.
When you talk about business training certification courses, the price counts. If you’re drawn to a dramatically cheaper provider, always remember that they will be cutting costs in order to make profit. But good thing it doesn’t work conversely. A provider’s brand name or reputation does not justify spending more than you have to.
Research the trainers.
A very intelligent person isn’t automatically a very good teacher. Besides technical expertise, you also need to look into a trainer’s teaching experience.
Talk to the provider.
By now, you should have come down to your last two or three prospects. You’ve researched their background and all, now what? Give them a ring. You’ll get a better feel from actually talking to them than just reading about them online. Lastly trust your instincts. If they answer any of your questions with some hesitation or if you sense some bluffing going on, you know that’s a bad sign.
