5 reasons to choose an online course instead of classroom course

It’s cheaper

Classroom-based classes in South Shields are usually much more expensive than their online counterparts because classroom courses involve extra overheads, such as a tutor and a classroom. These additional features increase the cost of the courses, and the extra cost is passed down to you, the consumer. Furthermore, if you fail a class-based course exam, you might be required to pay more to be retested. With our online food hygiene courses, you may re-sit exams as many times as needed, at no extra charge.

It’s more convenient and flexible

What could possibly be better than doing a course at a time that suits you, whether that be day or night? With an online course you can do the learning and the exam entirely in your free time. Courses can be done in bite sizechunks or in one go. The choice is yours. Classroom courses however must be attended at a set time, in a particular location in South Shields, which may not be super suitable.

It’s safer

As we come out of a pandemic, with Covid still looming, the nation has become accustomed to online services more than ever before. Online food hygiene safety courses can be completed entirely from the comfort and safety of your own home, while physical courses in South Shields inevitably require venturing out and mixing with other students.

It’s more environmentally friendly

Going to a classroom-based food hygiene course in South Shields usually involves travelling via car or using public transport. The most environmentally friendly course of all is the one that doesn’t involve any transport whatsoever – doing your course online.

You get all the benefits

With online training, some people assume that they might get stuck and won’t have someone to consult if they have a question. Our expert support team is always on-hand to help students. You can always phone us up, or send an email. Our team will happily answer getting you through the course. Furthermore, our courses are fully accredited, so candidates also get awarded the same CPD points and a certificate as if it were a physical course in South Shields.
