Online Training VS In-Person Training

The advantages of online training vs in-person training may best be understood by envisioning how each delivery model would be applied to a given business’s employee training requirements.

Let’s say that a fictional company, “Sell Co.,” needs to hire two additional salespeople because it is rolling out an additional product.

Each model will be discussed across a few dimensions: the trainer; the learner’s learning style; convenience, and cost.


1. The trainer. 

With in person training, the trainer must deliver the training separately each and every time an employee takes the training.

In our example – let’s suppose that the product being rolled-out takes off and more salespeople are hired. This means that the training must entirely be delivered over again, at roughly the same cost incurred to deliver the training the first time. This will be the case ad infinitum. However, with online training, the trainer only needs to design and create the training program once, and it can be delivered repeatedly.
