    Classroom Workshops- Face to Face (Instructor Led) Subject to student demand

    If you prefer a more structure learning environment where you can discuss ideas and concepts with people from a range of backgrounds whilst completing your studies in a accelerated manner then our Intensive Workshops may be best for you.

    Workshops are conducted by our experienced Trainers who have hands-on industry experience. Workshops enhance the learning experience through the creation of an exciting, interactive classroom setting that reinforces and shares the skills, knowledge and attitudes amongst each workshop participants.

    Study periods are flexible with Workshops being run continuously throughout the year in the main capital cities.

    If you are new to the Financial Services Industry Workshops provide an effective way to fast-track your understanding of the core issues facing the industry and how best to deal with real world issues.
    Workshops are restricted to small numbers so our Trainers can provide individual attention when students require it. An important part of the learning experience is hearing the opinions and views of the other participants. Trainers strongly encourage all students to actively participate in class discussions and contribute their thoughts and to value and respect the opinion of others.

    Pre-reading of all learning materials is essential and compulsory prior to attendance to our Workshops.
