Workshops and Tutorials

Workshops are shorter sessions aimed at teaching one thing. Tutorials are scaled up trainings for conference purposes. While a training is usually limited to 12-16 people, a tutorial of same topic can run on 50+ people. It leaves it more broadcast of information than a skills transfer.

Training Courses

Training course aim at solidifying knowledge and skills transfer to students, moving each student from where they are to better. Really great courses would run with same group over longer time, but in business training, we often start by budgeting 1/2 day to 2 days for a particular topic.
