Having trouble attending training?
Not everyone has the opportunity to attend face-to-face training - particularly if you live in regional areas not easily accessible to local training providers.
The CMA is pleased to offer you 3 high quality, self paced, self learning programmes which allow participants to work at their own pace and complete the workbook in their own time without supervision. This is an approach that is ideal when small numbers of staff require training or where distance learning is more appropriate. What is the Effective Series?
The Effective Business series is a range of workbooks and associated Facilitator Guides, covering a series of related business topics. They have been developed so that each of the programs can be introduced into a organisation in a variety of ways, including self-paced self-learning, in a tutorial environment, or as a structured training program.
The great advantage of the Effective Series of training programs is that they can adapt in either content or method of implementation to meet your specific requirements.
The range consists of:
Introducing the Programs to Your Organisation
- Effective Business Writing
- Effective Business Negotiation
- Effective Reports & Proposals
The Effective Series of workbooks are designed as self-paced, self-learning programs which allow each participant to work at their own pace without supervision.
The tutorial environment allows for group learning on a modular basis, allowing participants to share their work with others
