Virtual training is a rapidly growing phenomenon, where employees, partners and even clients are being trained via a screen. This is quite a shift from the conventional person to person training methodologies of the past. And hence, there have been a lot of debates on whether it should be an accepted training medium.

It overcomes distance: This is perhaps the biggest advantage of virtual training. With it, there is no need for anyone to be location bound. Today, organizations are becoming location independent – with employees often working from different parts of the world. Keeping pace with such a globalized economy, virtual training bridges the distance and makes the training process simpler by simplifying access. So, you can be sitting in your own country and successfully training someone who’s continents away!
It’s cost effective: Virtual training eliminates a lot of costs for both the participants of training and the trainers, like costs of travelling to the training destination, lodging for the participants, stationeries, refreshments etc. This way, virtual training becomes a highly cost effective solution for one and all.
It’s flexible: When it comes to virtual training, one can be on a train, a coffee shop or even on a holiday and still manage to participate in the training. Being location independent adds a lot of flexibility to the training. All one needs is a laptop and a steady internet connection. This way, such trainings can be easily fit into the busiest of schedules at one’s convenience.
It’s connected: Collaborating is really easy in case of virtual training. With the availability of Cloud sharing, you can get an entire team working seamlessly!
It’s modern & interactive: Virtual training works well because it comes with a lot of experience enhancing online tools. You can share real time feedback with your peers. You can share experiences through social media. All this makes the training a lot more interactive and fun!
Of course, virtual training will require a good technological setup and internet connectivity. But once you invest in these, it can potentially transform the way you do your business! Give virtual training a try and reap the benefits for yourself!
