5 reasons to choose an online course instead of classroom course

It’s cheaper

Classroom-based classes in Darlington are typically more expensive than their online counterparts because classroom courses involve additional overheads, like a tutor and a classroom. These overheads increase the course cost, a cost that is passed onto you, the consumer. Furthermore, if you don’t pass a classroom-based course exam, you might need to pay more to be retested. However, with our online courses, you may re-sit an exam as many times as necessary, for no extra cost.

It’s more convenient and flexible

What could possibly be more convenient than doing a course when you have some free time, whether that be day or night? With an online course you can do the learning syllabus and exam entirely in your own time. It can be completed in chunks or in one fell swoop. The choice is entirely yours. Classroom courses however need to be completed at a set time, in a particular venue in Darlington, which probably won’t be as easy to attend.

It’s safer

As we come out of a pandemic, and with Covid still looming in the air, the nation has become accustomed to online training more than ever before. Online food hygiene safety courses can be undertaken entirely from the safety of your own home, while classroom courses in Darlington naturally entail going out and mixing with people you don’t know.

It’s more environmentally friendly

Travelling to a classroom-based food hygiene course in Darlington usually means travelling via car or using public transport. The greenest method of all is one that doesn’t need any transport whatsoever – doing your course online.

You get all the benefits

With an online course, some people worry that they might get stuck without someone to consult if they have a question. Our expert support team is always on-hand to help candidates. You can just phone us up, or send an email. We’ll happily help with your questions. also, our courses are fully accredited, so you will amass the same CPD points and a certificate as if it was a physical course in Darlington.
