What are the differences between ZDHC Academy's online self-paced, online training, in-person training, and or blended learning?
The differences between the training methodologies are mainly related to the presence of a trainer and/or actually attending a training in person or online. We distinguish 4 different methodologies at the moment:
In-person training: classroom training with a teacher in the room.
Online training (guided): training with a teacher, however hosted online remotely.
Self-paced E-Learning: training via online self-paced training modules without the guidance of a trainer.
Blended learning: a combination of the above methodologies. The content covered remains the same, as do certification requirements.
