Online learning is a popular alternative to other forms of learning, especially in the current pandemic. With no costs for travel and accommodation, its advantages are obvious encouraging many educational providers and learning and development managers to look to the internet for solutions to on-going training needs.
While Cambridge Academy of Transport has offered remote training in the form of distance learning programmes for many years, these are no substitute for the extended benefits derived from contact or face-to-face learning — especially the hidden advantages of mixing and sharing social time with one's peers in the industry.
COVID-19 has placed a temporary halt to our traditional contact courses worldwide including our UK-based residential programmes. To counter the absence of many of the long-running programmes, Cambridge Academy of Transport has developed an online training course series based on our extensive knowledge base and tutored by our team of industry-savvy lecturers. The courses will still be fully interactive, with lecturers answering questions and students working together on examples and case studies.
