Training is available both regular and distance learning mode. The self-paced online training programme is a convenient way of studying when distance, transport arrangements or work and family commitments make attending classes difficult.
Studying externally has more advantages than disadvantages. You can learn at your own pace, at a time convenient to you. You may take a relatively short time or a longer time to complete a module, but it is unwise (except in unusual circumstances) to take more than one week to complete any module. Your interest and motivation may begin to lag if you adopt a very casual approach.
Many people consider that the main disadvantage for distance education students is that they cannot interact face to face with their teacher while they are learning. However, National Institute for Career Education gives an opportunity to directly interact with Instructors of the course. Students are fully supported by faculty members and are available to clarify doubts or discuss topics and answer any questions via face to face, telephone or online contact.
Our experience (which is supported by research) is that external students are usually highly motivated, and achieve slightly better results (on average) than students attending classroom lectures. Distance education students need to follow a self-imposed schedule of study hours, in order to cover all the reading, revision, and preparation of assessment tasks that is required.
This is a self-paced training comprising of theory + activities + practical. It totally depends on individual student how fast s/he finishes the training. But all students must be prepared to produce required assignment work throughout the programme.
