Coggins International is renowned for providing world-class training solutions and services in classroom, virtual and eLearning environments on a global basis. All of our instructors have been certified as a CompTIA Certified Technical Trainer (CTT+), demonstrating a measured standard of excellence in the training field. CTT+ validates the knowledge and use of tools and techniques necessary to teach in today’s highly technical learning environments. With a corporate commitment to the utmost performance standards and qualifications, our IT professionals and engineers are also trained and certified in their respective management and technical categories by CompTIA, Microsoft, Project Management Institute, SAP and/or other leading industry certification organizations.
Classroom Training remains one of the most popular and effective training techniques. It is a personal, face-to-face type of training where everyone receives the same information at the same time. This allows for ‘storytelling’ to grab people’s attention, which is more fun and enjoyable. All of our classroom training is taught by accomplished Certified Instructors and Subject Matter Experts — unmatched within their areas of specialty.
Instructor-Led Training (ILT) provides the opportunity to collaborate, problem-solve and network with other students from a diverse range of backgrounds while learning valuable, results-producing skills that you can apply at work or toward professional certification. Instructors are able adapt their presentations to the skill level and personality of the class they are teaching. Group interaction enhances learning, as students learn from one another as well as from the Instructor. The group setting also teaches students how to interact with one another in a professional, productive and cooperative way, which is something that other forms of training often do not provide. Our Training Center is located in the quaint, richly historic Old Town Alexandria, Virginia – overlooks the Potomac River and Washington, DC. This world-class, state-of-the-art and professional training environment is ideally situated for our Defense, Government and International customers.
Virtual Instructor-Led Training (VILT) is the fastest growing method of internet-based learning delivery, and is transforming the way people learn. Coggins International is setting the pace in on-line, VILT courses with our ability to deliver any course, anywhere, anytime via our interactive, and easy to use platform. This synchronous training allows students and instructors full face to face interaction via the crystal-clear video and audio provided by our virtual platform; it’s just like being in a classroom, only you never have to leave your home or office. The students receive all of the same content directly from the same accomplished Certified Instructors and Subject Matter Experts teaching the in-house courses, and even experience all of the same hands on exercises conducted in a formal classroom setting. The virtual platform also eliminates the cost of travel and lodging, saving the customer money.
Scheduling classroom sessions for large numbers of students can be difficult—especially when trainees are at multiple, global locations. When time and logistics are an issue, eLearning is definitely the answer! eLearning is becoming increasingly prevalent as technology becomes more widespread and easy to use. Such technology-based training can be used to provide needed instruction without taking a trainee away from their daily responsibilities.
eLearning (sometimes called distance learning) is a formalized teaching and learning process specifically designed to be carried out remotely by electronic means of communication, education and training. Our eLearning solutions include computer-based training (CBT), web-based training (WBT), instructional videos, virtual classrooms, and digital collaboration; with content delivered via the Internet, intranet/extranet, audio or video media, CD-ROM/DVD, and interactive videoconferencing. Because eLearning is less expensive to support and is not constrained by geographic considerations, it offers opportunities in situations where traditional training has difficulty operating. Students with scheduling or distance problems can benefit, because eLearning can be more flexible in terms of time and can be delivered virtually anywhere. Each of these implies a “just-in-time” instructional and learning approach.
With our FuelsTraining™ Learning Management System (LMS), you will be able to log onto any computer and learn in an interactive and fun manner via the internet. You will be able to easily track and access your learning progress at any time. FuelsTraining™ facilitates reporting, training planning, and student development from one, centralized web-based source. Though traditional forms of training are not likely to be replaced completely by technological solutions, they will continue to be enhanced by them. Human interaction will always remain a key component of training. With Coggins International, you have a choice of the best of both methods of training.
