Before signing up for your instructor-led training program, here are the 7 answers to the most frequently asked questions about instructor-led training that you might need to know.

What is instructor-led training?

Instructor-led training is an instructor-facilitated form of training. In other words, it is a training program in which an instructor is available to offer instructions, guidance, explanations, and support. The instructor takes the role of explaining the course material, leading exercises, and providing feedback to participants. Participants follow instructions, seek clarifications, and receive guidance from the instructor.


Does instructor-led training limit the number of participants?

With Onebridge Center, instructor-led training does not have any limitation on the number of participants. Even if you are an individual looking to sign up for a course to acquire a new skill on your own, our instructor-led training has a place for you. Many small organizations have embraced instructor-led training for their companies of less than 50 people. Similarly, large or enterprise organizations have increasingly adopted instructor-led training for over 1000 learners and participants.

However, it is important to have a reasonable number of participants to increase efficiency and positive outcomes. Small groups of participants could limit networking and network building opportunities. Equally, a very large number of participants could also reduce the outcome quality.


Can I engage in instructor-led training online?

E-learning is a great resource for individuals looking to acquire new knowledge, however the self-sufficiency that it requires can be a challenge for some individuals. Those who engage in e-learning sometimes find themselves feeling lonely or overwhelmed. With instructor-led training, technology is a component, but the level of technological proficiency is not as high. Furthermore, learners who are used to a community environment often prefer instructor-led training as it offers the community aspect.


Can I ask questions during instructor-led training?

Instructor-led training allows participants to ask questions or seek clarification during the training. Your instructor-led training program should have a question-and-answer chat box. You can also ask questions at any stage of the training, especially when it is a topical concern on the issues being discussed at that time.
