AP Courses has been awarded the Institute of IT Training (IITT) accreditation - the only Channel Islands training provider to have achieved it. The locally based company underwent a vigorous assessment process to ensure it met the standard required to impress the UK's official IT training body.
Director of AP Courses Nicky Salmon is delighted that the quality of training offered by the company has been recognised. 'We achieved the accreditation through our commitment to excellence and our clear understanding of the elements necessary to deliver an effective IT training service,' she said.
'I saw the IITT accreditation programme as an opportunity for AP Courses to be seen to be making a public commitment to compliance with the IITT Code of Practice, thereby giving clients confidence that we are the people to come to,' Nicky continued.
The services provided by AP Courses include training manuals and assessments both before and after the courses, which are designed by a courseware supplier in the UK that is itself fully accredited by the IITT. This is to ensure that delegates are registered at the correct level, based on their current knowledge.
One of the things that sets AP Courses apart is its dedication to aftercare. 'Clients and students are welcome to phone or e-mail us as often as they need to after the course has finished if there is anything we can do to help them,' Nicky concluded.
Courses available either in AP Group's fully equipped training rooms or at the client's premises include full training days and two-hour 'bite-size' sessions for those who can't afford to be away from their desk for long periods. There are also 'floor-walking sessions', where AP Group trainers are on hand in the client's offices, answering questions and helping staff along while they implement their newly learned skills. Qualified tutors can also discuss with clients their individual needs in order to tailor-make training programmes at no extra cost.
