We customise the training to suit you and your employer

ITHEA will endeavour to develop a training plan to suit you. To achieve this, we offer a blended approach to learning. This means we will

customise the training around your workplace commitments.

Our blended approach includes fortnightly or monthly lecture series and workplace assessment with online learning.

You have the freedom to work through the learning/assessments in your own time. You can go at your own pace. Simply log into your account and continue your course where you left off last time.

Online training offers the following advantages: It is especially beneficial for people who are working. The training is self-paced and includes interactive tutorials, questionnaires, case studies, self-assessment, and other features that easily assimilate to individual learning styles. It offers the opportunity to learn in a non-stressful environment because people have more control over their learning experience.
