Making the Most of ILT
Classroom training isn’t always successful, so as a cert candidate, you must do your homework to pick the best classes, and be aggressive about obtaining the best possible learning experience once you do show up in the classroom. Be careful to select training providers who offer a money-back guarantee if training proves unsatisfactory, and take advantage of that offer if your experience isn’t what you’d like it to be. When selecting a provider, be sure to check references, and to look for reviews from former students who rate the course and the instructor. Finally, be sure to clear your calendar when you leave work to take a class; it’s no fun to be stuck out of town, in the classroom, yet still burdened with crisis management and problem-solving for your employer. Make a clean break from work while you’re in class, so you don’t have to split your focus between one thing (work) and another (class). That’s no fun at all.
