I have completed my engineering in I.T. & currently looking for the, complete physical classroom training course for the role of Business analyst.
Please let me know the institutions that provide such courses for the freshers.
Training courses for Business Analysts come in two forms: the physical classroom and online.
The classroom setting is the traditional format, but just because it has been done this way in the past doesn’t make it the best choice.
Albert Einstein once said that insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
A wise man considers the cost of something before he buys it. When considering the cost of training, the price of the course is only part of the expense of the traditional physical classroom training.
There are other costs involved in getting the attendees to and from the meeting and accommodating them while on site.
Following are some considerations to take into account when deciding whether classroom or online training is best for you:
On-site business meetings is a multi-billion dollar a year industry and that is why classroom training is expensive.
This type of training seems to be designed for managers with a surplus training budget burning a hole in their pocket and needing to be spent.
In America, most of these costs are tax deductible, but if you’re the one shelling out the initial expense, it is quite a drain to hope for a profitable return.
Online courses like the Business Analyst Boot Camp is designed to be affordable to all sizes of budgets.
This makes it possible for the unemployed professional to afford the training alongside the working business person.
An individual can get training without waiting to have the company approve it as part of their budget.
Lodging/Transportation/Clothing and Food Costs
The cost of the course is just the beginning. These courses are also not private sessions between you and the instructor.
They are set up to accommodate groups of attendees. Because the training course will be at one physical location, and all the attendees are most likely scattered throughout different locations, you first have to bring everyone together in one place.
This requires transportation costs. Airfare, train or gasoline costs can add up quickly.
Once you arrive, you will need a place to stay and food to eat. This involves lodging costs.
Even a cheap hotel costs money that is part of the necessary expense when attending a physical classroom session.
Sometimes a light snack or meal is included as part of the actual meeting, but there will still be additional meals needed outside of the classroom throughout your stay.
You will need to pack business attire for the duration of your stay.
Another expense not always considered is the cost for proper professional business attire to wear while you’re attending the training session.
Even though you are not officially on the job, you will want to maintain a professional appearance.
Online training eliminates the need to pay all of these additional expenses.
After you have paid for the course, all you need is access to a computer and time to take part in the training.
Traditional classroom training takes up a lot of time that could be used for productive work.
It also takes time away from your family, as travel is usually part of the deal.
Even though your time is taken up, the actual time spent in the classroom is not enough to offer sufficient hands-on experience and get the information to “stick.”
Online training is very flexible. You can take the training at any time, day or night.
You can wait till the kids are in bed, or take some training during breaks at work or your lunch time.
You don’t have to interrupt your lifestyle or take time away from your current job.
Clock Watching and Attending Training As Often As Needed
The physical classroom training is designed to fit into 2-5 days training time.
If you need more time to understand a concept, you’re out of luck.
In a traditional classroom, if you have a question, there is typically not sufficient time to cover an answer because they have to keep moving along at a rapid pace to finish at a specific day and time.
Online, you can rewind and re-watch anything you need refreshing or extra training on.
This is like attending a physical training course multiple times, as often as needed until you fully understand what is presented.
You are free to skip over parts you know and focus on those where you need more understanding.
