ICD offers customised inhouse short courses to organanisations on a request basis. The courses are customised in terms of content, venue, timing and duration.

In-house training is a cost-effective approach for organisations that want to train six or more people offering the flexibility of choosing your own venue and timings and Tailoring the course to the needs of your organisation.

How Does in-house training Work
If multiple people within your organisation have the same learning needs, in-house training is likely to be the most effective training option as it will enable the maximum number of employees to engage in training at the lowest possible cost. Your organisation will supply the venue, equipment and trainees – ICD will then send its qualified trainers to your organisation to facilitate the course on your premises and on your terms. All of which means you can enjoy lower costs and increased flexibility.

Where Does ICD conduct in-house Courses

We can run in-house training almost anywhere in the world. The only limiting factors are language and the safety and security of our trainers. All ICD courses are available in English. Due to the training approach we use, we are not able to work with interpreters so we therefore require learners to have a good standard of written and spoken English. If a client needs us to travel to an area considered a high security risk, we require that the trainer is included in the organisation’s security policy and insurance.

Benefits of in-house Training
Having ICD deliver a training course in-house has a number of benefits to your organisation; benefits that are both financial and practical…

  • Lower cost: It is often more cost effective to have courses delivered at venues of your choice rather than you and your staff having to travel to another site.
  • Trainers talk your language: In order to make training relevant to your staff, we use examples and illustrations from your business sector and cut out the jargon to encourage easier learning.
  • Team building: The cost savings associated with in-house training usually mean that more of your staff can participate on a course, which in turn means that in-house courses can enjoy a positive atmosphere. In fact, engaging in training as a group and undertaking activities and discussions together can also serve as a team-building exercise, strengthening the bonds between your employees and improving morale.

The combination of all of the above means that your organisation can enjoy the maximum return on your training and development investment with ICD’s in-house training courses
