Program Delivery Methods
CNet is serious about technical education and dedicated to offering the following methods of learning to customers around the world. Below is an overview of each.
There are various forms of remote attendance learning available. Some simply provide details to join an on-line meeting that allows you to see and hear an Instructor or teacher. Others, such as the CNet way, are more sophisticated and allow you to join a place-based classroom with other learners sitting in the actual room.
Here, remote attendees log in to effectively sit in the same classroom and are visible to all others via a large screen. There are several camera angles available to allow the Instructor to choose the best camera angles and change them as needed. Audio devices also allow any of the learners to speak to everyone else, providing clarity by muting the microphones of others when one person is taking, allowing a conversation to take place involving all. Additionally, remote attendees can often take part in group activities via virtual break out rooms, combining those in the classroom with the remote attendees. There are many advantages to remote attendance over and above the saving of travel time and the costs associated with accommodation and subsistence.

Here, one of CNet’s expert Instructors delivers the educational program to multiple people from the same organisation at their place of work, at the same time. This is the ultimate convenience for the learners and ideal if they can escape the distractions of their day-to-day work whilst at their workplace. It also encourages team discussion and team work as colleagues can learn and innovate together.

Attending a classroom of a program delivered by an expert Instructor with many other learners in the same room. Some argue that being away from the workplace allows more creativity and free-flowing thinking, others prefer to learn in their workplace where they can bounce ideas around with colleagues as they learn, which can further help enrich the learning experience. However, with place-based classroom learning there is the added benefit of not knowing who else will attend. This can add a further dimension to the learning as you can share ideas and experiences from others in the sector within similar roles.
CNet has scheduled classroom-based programs across the world, many have remote attendance capability too. See full list of program dates here.
The ultimate flexible learning where material is accessed online allowing the learning to be undertaken asynchronously – when and where it is convenient. This approach does take focus and motivation as it is all too easy to push the flexible element too far and procrastinate. Secrets to success with distance learning include ensuring you dedicate time by creating a routine and adhering to it, having a quiet place to learn without the distractions of family or work life and using dedicated online Tutor support.

An approach to education that combines online pre-class study with place-based classroom learning or remote attendance. This involves the support of a dedicated online Tutor available during pre-class study in readiness for attending classroom sessions. Blended learning is ideal for those who do not fully enjoy distance learning as it provides motivation and a deadline to complete the online study and the ability to discuss new learning with others and the Instructor during the classroom sessions.
