The Smart Method has been delivering IT
courses to many of the world's leading companies
since 2001. Smart Method courses are
addictive. Once you have taken a Smart
Method course you'll find all other forms
of learning sadly lacking.
There are many ways in which IT skills can
be acquired. The Smart Method was
born from the realisation that most contemporary
training methods produce inconsistent and
often ineffective results.
Our revolutionary training method is so
effective that we have had 100% success
to date in transferring the relevant skills
covered to each and every delegate who has
attended our courses.
Here's some examples of how our courses
differ from those you may be used to:-
- You won't, in the main, do much
work with some tired old example files
(such as spreadsheets and databases).
We tend to teach skills by creating
examples that are relevant to your own
business... or sometimes by using your
own sample files that you have brought
Our method recognises that you'll learn
most effectively when you instantly
see the relevance of the skills learned
to making your job easier and more efficient.
- Tuition is completely "hands on"
for the delegate. The instructor
guides the students through each software
feature by reference to the logic of
the process being taught rather than
being given specific "by rote" instructions.
- Our instructors don't stand in front
of you lecturing. We don't teach
by "imitation" (the least effective
way of learning). We keep lecture-style
instruction to an absolute minimum.
- We don't move on to the next topic
until each and every delegate has thoroughly
understood the topics already covered.
Assessment is thus a continuing and
integral part of the teaching process.
We don't give you a "test" at the end
of the course to prove skills transfer
- by which time it is too late to do
anything if it is found that you didn't
understand the course material!
It simply isn't possible to take a Smart
Method course and return thinking "I
switched off after the first ten minutes
and learned nothing" as is so often
the case with contemporary lecture-style
teaching. Each and every student
will always learn the materials presented,
with our teaching method there can be
no other outcome!
- Our courses are meticulously prepared.
When appropriate we use intuitive animated
slides to explain complex processes
in a simple audio-visual way.
- We don't "stack it high and sell
it cheap". You won't get much
individual attention in a class of twelve
(though it is very profitable for a
training provider to offer this type
of course while representing poor value
for the delegates).
We have an absolute maximum of six delegates
per class and the average is far less
than that (individual tuition is actually
our most popular option). This
enables the instructor to be positively
sure that each delegate has achieved
the maximum value possible from the
There is a lot more
to our method than the above and we're constantly
refining our system based upon feedback
from our courses.
Whatever size your
business is, and to whatever extent you
currently use IT, we are here to help you
to maximise your return on both your human
resources and your investment in technology.
Our only goal is
to provide the very best training experience
possible. We'll never compromise!
