In-Company or Public Training Courses: A Comparison

Simon Wallace | 23rd September 2014

Selecting an in-company training course over a public training course for your talent development can be a little confusing without an understanding the pros and cons of either options.

Here are my top 3 pros for each option:

In-Company Training Course

  • Tailored
  • Confidential
  • Cost-effective

Public Training Course

  • Open
  • Generic
  • Affordable

In summary, an in-company training course will provide you with a tailored and confidential development solution that is cost effective if you have 4 delegates or more. Whereas a public training course will provide you with a generic, open development solution that is more cost effective for an organisation or professional individual interested to nominate only one delegate or more.

The fact is that the pros of either training option can be seen as cons by some given their circumstances and therefore this decision is situational!

The key to a great development experience regardless of the option to train in-company or in a public course is to select a training solution that is designed by a professional training organisation, delivered by a credible authority with a proven track record of success in the subject and is affordable to you given your budget.

Does your company prefer in-company or public training courses?

Time to remove obstacles to training and development!
