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.

Remote Attendance

Live and Interactive Classroom Learning Remotely

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 classroom environment remotely.

For the last three years we have been delivering programs via ‘Remote Attendance’.

The CNet Remote Attendance learning experience is different from many others, it is live and fully interactive with both the Instructor and fellow attendees wherever they are in the world. For those who haven't experienced Remote Attendance we have created demonstration sessions and urge our customers to attend a session to be reassured of the high quality learning experience.

We have a full schedule of program dates in time zones across the world and we are able to deliver fifteen live classes simultaneously.

Distance Learning

Ultimate flexible learning where material is accessed online allowing for complete self-paced learning and therefore allowing you to study from wherever you are and at a time that is most convenient to you.

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.

Some distance learning programs such as the Data Center Fundamentals, are narrated to further enrich the learning experience and for learners to watch at their own pace.

Blended Learning

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.

Online Tutor Support

Pat Drew and Kevin Matless are CNet’s dedicated online Tutors. They are a real asset for our learners.

With over 24 years of experience in the industry, Pat has worked in various roles from Network Engineer to Data Center Manager, covering Europe, North America and Asia and for a highly recognizable organization.

Kevin enjoyed a 22-year career in the Royal Air Force; towards the end of that career he became the Chief Instructor at the Aerial Erector School based at RAF Digby.

They both provide on-going support as needed as part of the pre-class study and during CNet's distance learning programs. They are available via the following methods during the programs:

  • Live Support
    • Online Meetings
    • Tutorials
    • One-to-one support using video conferencing
  • Learner and Tutor question and answer forum
  • Webinars

Place-based Classroom

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.

Private Classes

Here, one of CNet’s expert Instructors delivers the educational program to multiple people from the same organization 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.
