5 reasons to choose an online course instead of classroom course

It’s cheaper

Classroom-based courses in Reading are normally much more costly than their online counterparts because classroom courses incur additional overheads, like an instructor and a classroom. These overheads inflate the cost of the courses, and the extra cost is passed down to you, the customer. Moreover, if you fail a class-based course exam, you might be required to pay more to be retested. But with our online food hygiene courses, you can re-do an exam as many times as you like, for no extra charge.

It’s more convenient and flexible

What could possibly be better than doing a course around your own schedule, whether that be day or night? With our online courses you can do the training and the exam at a time that’s convenient to you. Courses can be completed in chunks or in one go. The choice is entirely yours. Classroom courses on the other hand must be done at a set time, in a particular venue in Reading, which may not be super easy to attend.

It’s safer

As we emerge from a pandemic, with Covid still looming in the air, the nation has become accustomed to online education more than ever before. Online food hygiene safety courses can be completed entirely from the safety of your home, while classroom courses in Reading naturally require going out and mixing with new social circles.

It’s more environmentally friendly

Going to a classroom-based food hygiene course in Reading no doubt means travelling in a car or using public transport. The most environmentally friendly course of all is one that doesn’t require any transport whatsoever i.e. an online course.

You get all the benefits

With online training, some people think that they will get stuck without someone to consult if they have a question. Our expert support team is on-hand to help students. Students can call us up, or send us an email. Our team will gladly answer any questions you have. also, our courses are fully accredited, so candidates still amass the same CPD points and a certificate as if it was a classroom-based course in Reading.
