What are the benefits of online learning?
There are many advantages of undertaking a course online.
Support network – you won’t miss out on having the traditional classroom support with Edna. Our students have a dedicated forum set up specially for them to interact with other students to leverage support and knowledge off!
Flexibility – study anytime, anywhere and you dictate the time it takes for you to finish the course
Faster support – instead of waiting for your next class to ask a question, you can simply e-mail your Trainer and get a response within 24-hours (excluding weekends)
Distance is no longer a factor – with modern technology, those who lived in rural areas or those who would have originally have found it very challenging to undertake further study in person can now learn in the comforts of their own home with the support and help of a dedicated team of Trainers
More affordable options – you can save a lot of time and money by eliminating travel time and costs, babysitting costs, and other miscellaneous costs involved with face-to-face training
