Working virtually has been a huge part of our lives over the last year or so, and for most, it still is.

The SAP market has changed dramatically, and one of the things that Speller has noticed is the way we’re Trained in our roles. Pre-Covid, Speller would send SAP Trainers all over the country and often overseas to remote mine and manufacturing sites to provide training. But recently the SAP Community has had to adapt.

And like every adaption in the work force, Training has become online.

No longer are Training rooms required, and no longer are Attendee’s required to make their way to training rooms before, after or during their shift. Trainers are now delivering their content by Skype for Business, Zoom or Teams.

Over the last 18 months Speller has had the privilege in assisting multiple organisations in rolling out SAP and providing SAP Trainers across all modules and all Training from the comfort of their own homes.

So, what are the key advantages of virtual training?

After speaking with multiple SAP Trainers who have adapted to this new delivery mode, Speller has noticed the following 4 common advantages of virtual training.

Work Life Balance for the Trainer

SAP Trainers are seasoned travelled. They are used to a lot of flights, Ubers, multiple worksites and classrooms to complete training sessions. Now without the requirement to travel and need for early mornings starts, Trainers are more prepared for their sessions without the horrid jetlag.

The new method of online training has afforded them more time to prepare detailed training plans and schedules which benefits the attendees too. In addition, the trainers now have a more balanced work life balance, making their day to day lives more enjoyable.

Trainers Can Track & Measure Attendees Performance

Another advantage is how much easier Trainers and organisations can track and measure valuable data points. As everything is online, the percentage of attendees ‘disengaged’ in a session can be easily tracked and allows the Trainer time to address this. They can review the data and course content and focus on how and why participants were disengaged.

This reporting will help adjust future learning programs for more effective training. The best part? It will make sure that employer’s will get the most from their employees and gain important information that can be implemented to help their business.

Access to the Best Courses Worldwide

Having SAP courses and training sessions delivered online means that attendees can access SAP Training by a wider range of organisations. How? Well, online learning can be worldwide giving attendees not only a broader range of course material and information but access to the best courses across the globe.

This benefit to online learning will continue to enhance the outcomes for businesses and personal growth throughout the industry.

Reduction in Cost to Attendees

No travel, no more time away from the company or your job - simply log on when it’s time and away you go! This saves attendees travelling to and from classrooms before, after or during the workday. This means that there is less time lost in the office, the ability to attend the course after hours, and no loss in pay.

In fact, learning virtually can ensure that there are more attendees, and they are better prepared to take part in the training providing a better outcome.

Of course, these are only a few key advantages, and with everything there is always the negatives which we will delve into in our next Training blog.
