Short Courses

Highly interactive and with a focus on practical application of learning and accountability, ECMR delivers a range of short courses in a traditional classroom environment at the client’s own location(s). Courses are typically a half-day in length (unless indicated otherwise) but can be extended or combined with other subjects to meet the training needs of our clients. These courses are designed for employees, supervisors and teamleaders. To help participants get the most from their learning experience, we ensure that our clients are provided with detailed course outlines for reference, as well as joining instructions and workbooks for participants, and manager briefings to ensure that participants direct managers or supervisors understand the objectives of the courses. Every participant also has the opportunity to have a follow-up telephone coaching session to help them implement their action plan and re-fresh key learning points from the course.
