MYOB Training – Classroom vs Online

What a decision! How do you choose whether to enter the classroom physically or spiritually?

Some of us have not been to class of any kind since we left school behind those many moons ago. It can be a daunting experience heading back into the classroom for some and for some it’s just a matter of time constraint.

Ok, so down to the pros and cons!

MYOB classroom training is usually accessed by adults wanting further education and therefore there should be none of that old feeling of teacher/student hierarchy.  MYOB Instructors are just that, instructors or trainers, and it is their job to get you through the course without making you feel that you are back in that old style school where you were not an equal.  Trainees, as we call our students, are seen as people looking to further their education and therefore want to be learning.  This always makes everyone’s job easier.

MYOB training in a classroom atmosphere can be extremely rewarding and fun. You have others that you can share the experience with, learn about more than just MYOB, network with others in diverse business situations, and hear different scenarios from the other trainees on their business practices.  All of these things are extremely educational for your own business and all you had to do was attend a MYOB classroom training session.

MYOB classroom training is usually done in day blocks over a short period of time, for example 2 full days or 4 nights. So if time is of the essence, this should be one of your considerations.

Now, to MYOB Online training.

Online training can be a cheaper experience than classroom training, but not always so. There are no rooms, computers or trainers to be paid for and therefore the costs to the Training Company should be minimal.  So do your research before you commit to either scenario.

You can work at your own pace with online MYOB training, (which is fine if you are not like me and leave everything until the final deadline!) and at your own time to complete your course. So if you are a night owl there is no problem with accessing training at 2 o’clock in the morning although there could be problems accessing help at that time.

Work is submitted and assessed usually through an online portal, where you can also chat to others on the forum if help is needed. Getting visual/written help should be one of the keys to look for when you are assessing what type of course would suit yourself.

You do study with some anonymity which for some people is a bonus and others it’s a pitfall.

In summary, I suppose it all comes down to the trainee; give me 2 years to finish a course and no supervision and that’s how long I will take, or put me in a classroom and give me a timeframe and I’ll get the job done.
