Our Training Approach

Self-directed learning

Unique self-directed learning environment

At Computer Power Plus we offer a unique learning environment where students are able to learn at their own pace. All of our qualifications are structured in a manner which enables students to logically and systematically follow the prescribed courseware. This courseware is delivered to them through their desktop PC at their own workstation. In a way this resembles other online training mediums, the key difference being that core learning for Computer Power Plus takes place on site at one of our three centrally located campuses.

No traditional classes

The Computer Power Plus training approach means that students do not learn in a traditional classroom environment, where one teacher takes them through a topic at a time. Instead all students are working at their own workstation, on an open training floor, following their own courseware requirements. To support this style of learning, qualified and experienced Instructors are always on hand to support students through their study. As part of our self-directed style of learning, students commit to a personalised study schedule which is negotiated at the time of enrolment. This schedule includes the due dates for completion of each course of their qualification. Our instructors help to keep students on track with regular follow-up contact and mentoring.

All the resources that students require to complete their training, including module learning guides, text books and access to software, are supplied for them and are covered by the course fees.

Other key benefits:

  • Progress at the pace that best meets your learning and lifestyle requirements.
  • You can quickly progress through those topics you find easy or have previous experience in, and dedicate more learning time to those topics you find more challenging. This will enable you to manage your training time according to your specific requirements. We understand that students have different learning and skill development needs, and our self-directed learning environment helps to accommodate these.
  • There are no conflicting assessments and class times to worry about because you are progressing through your own courseware requirements as set in your personalised study schedule.
  • It allows you to develop valuable time-management, self-management and problems solving skills that IT employers are looking for from graduates.
  • You will gain more flexibility than traditional classroom-style study. If you miss a day of study, you can easily pick up exactly where you were. There is no requirement or time pressure to catch up with the rest of the class.
  • It provides an easy way for you to review lessons. With our training modules you can easily review lessons as often as you like until you are ready to complete the assessment for that subject.
