Classroom or Virtual Training: Which One Should I Choose?

Training is an investment—not only in your people, but also in your organization. Both our classroom training and our virtual options are highly experiential, to support real-world application of concepts and tools.

The following chart highlights the pros and cons of each facilitation method. If you still need help deciding, get in touch with us. We’ll help you identify the right option for your needs and goals.

Classroom Training

Virtual Training

  • Trains up to 25 people in one program
  • Provides a dedicated forum to start a paradigm shift
  • Strengthens existing relationships and/or forges new relationships, depending on class make-up
  • Covers more content in a shorter period, with guided practice
  • Offers train-the-trainer option to support ongoing progress
  • Requires higher initial investment (including travel costs, if necessary)
  • Requires more time out of the office over 1 to 2 days
  • Doesn’t address implementation*
  • Trains geographically dispersed groups
  • Can be targeted to focus specifically on real-life challenges and implementation of solutions
  • Allows participants to absorb content over time, while practicing application
  • Builds stronger relationships as participants work through challenges together
  • Smaller groups may require more sessions if you have large numbers to train
  • Less real-time guidance during practice and application*

* This can be addressed by adding virtual coaching to support application after classroom training or between virtual sessions.
