Blended Learning – Why we are so Successful

We appreciate that the course that you are undertaking is a huge commitment and  requires many hours of revision.   In recognition of the volume of work required, our approach is different.

We recommend a blended learning approach to your orals prep.  Blended learning is a combination of;

  • Joining our e learning academy,
  • access to our offline app,
  • twice weekly live interactive tutorials
  • Additional  face to face and/or skype tutorials nearer to your exam or as progress sessions to help mentor you throughout  your course.

Course Approach

Our blended learning approach provides a structured, logical and comprehensive course typically taken over a three month period. During COVID-19 period,  we are only charging for one months use and this will allow access from now up to an exam anytime in in 2020.

Early access to the e learning prevents cramming of information and this pre loading of course material ensures a deeper knowledge base. This method then enables your tuition sessions to be a lot more interactive. Barry focus on situational awareness and critical thinking which are key elements of your oral exam.

In addition, another benefit of blended learning, is the reduced number of individiual tuition sessions required which help redice costs.  On average, candidates with this approach, have  between, 10-26 hours. However, every candidate is individual , so the number of hours can increase or decrease as required.

With our blended learning model, or technology reinforces your face to face or Skype tutorials and enables you to remain engaged wherever you are at whatever pace you chose.  The e learning academy houses over 36  modules and maps the MCA syllabus thus, providing you with all the necessary key information to pass your exa 

 

 

How Do I Use Blended Learning

Step 1

Start e learning. Ideally 1-3 months before your exam.  The course can be completed in a month however, this would require a high level of study commitment each day.

Step 2

Use the provided revision plan to structure your way through the course.

Step 3

We recommend an initial progress Skype or face to face session 2-4 weeks after the starting  the e learning and then at least another another two or three two hour progress tutorials.

Step 4

Undertake the final face to face or Skype tutorials before your exam.

What our candidates say

I cannot recommend Barry Sadler’s online oral preparation and one to one course enough! The online prep is perfectly suited towards candidates working in the maritime industry whom are preparing for their exams whilst still busy working at sea. Thank you Barry and Stephanie for continuing to raise the standards of tuition within the yachting industry and also for vastly enhancing my maritime knowledge!

“Barry’s distance learning was very comprehensive and gave me a great foundation of knowledge. By combining this  with Barry’s one to one sessions I was able to obtain the necessary pass mark.  Barry, you’re a legend and worth every penny,  thank you.”
