ProTrainings after service adds clarity to teaching, promotes continuous learning and encourages learners to revisit and revise subjects they have been taught.

Online Training – This is a simple and easier way to complete your training. Training shouldn’t be a hassle, for some courses online, video-based training means flexibility. You can do it on your schedule. Unlike classroom courses, online training videos can be paused, resumed, and re-watched as often as it takes for you to master the material.

Blended Training – The efficiency of online training makes it an ideal way for employees to train. But it’s not permitted for every course. With the blended version you will complete the first day online, the 2nd part of training which will be in the classroom completing the practical side to first aid. This is a popular choice with employers as it saves having staff members out of the office for 3 days and it is also cheaper than the classroom version.
