Mentored Learning - How it works

The joy of Mentored Learning is that students can come into our Dublin office to work face to face with their Mentor, or work with their Mentor Virtually online, or do both!

Our Mentored Learning method of training consists of 4 parts;

  1. Expert instructor delivers course content by means of a digital presentation delivered via the first workstation PC and using a head set.  The training is delivered at the best pace suitable for each student.
  2. Official courseware is available to the student to keep and read subsequent to the instruction  and  prior to the associated lab exercise.
  3. There is a second, Lab PC which is where the student will implement and practice what has been learned in order to reinforce the knowledge and to ensure that the training was effective.
  4. There is a team of full time Certified Instructors in the classroom with the students at all times, to answer questions and deliver any of the course content. They each have different areas of expertise and are all certified trainers.

Flexible Scheduling

As you’re working 1:1 with your Mentor, you can choose your schedule. You can do 5 days in a week or split up the course and do 1 day per week! Or take a 5 day course over 4-5 weeks! It's completely up to you. You can choose your starting date. You can start tomorrow, if you like!

About Mentored Learning

We deliver CompTIA technical training in our Mentored Learning classroom. The practical based Mentored Learning Classroom was designed by IT professionals, to suit IT professionals. One of the biggest advantages of the Mentored Learning Classroom concept is the flexibility it offers to those who require technical training but find it difficult to get time out of the office to attend scheduled classes for 5 days straight. You choose your own schedule, you can do one day per week if you like.  

The focus of the training is on Hand’s on Labs. Rather than the students sitting in a “Show and Tell” Learning Environment, all students must execute the Practical elements of the training courses themselves. They work one to one with the Instructors who can guide them through the labs. Working one to one with the Instructors also gives the delegates the opportunity to discuss their own Projects and with the help of the trainers, overcome any real world issues they are having. In this way, the trainer can help to customise elements of the course so that it is specific to each individual requirements.

The instructors are always in the room with you and can answer questions one-on-one and we encourage delegates to ask lots of questions to our instructors.
Certified Instructors are present to provide ongoing coaching, support and guidance throughout your training. Mentors can answer questions and provide additional instruction when needed to help increase your comprehension and retention of the course material.

Student Comments

Comments from mentored learning students

The ability to focus on just the parts I need to work on most is a great advantage

I need flexibility in scheduling

The mentored learning was something I was originally hesitant about, but turned out to be an excellent environment and something I would definitely do again(and hope to) and would have no problem recommending.

I found this to be a very effective method of delivering training. the pace of the videos was perfect and the labs are an excellent resource. It worked very well for me.

My instructor was excellent and even if i did not have questions he made sure that the info in the videos was understood and went through examples

The course was a nice surprise as I had never done mentored learning before and I really enjoyed it.  The support from the trainers was fantastic and the videos made the information flow very personal which suited me

Great working environment, very relaxed. The staff are very knowledgeable and always willing and ready to give advice when needed. The course itself provided me with all the knowledge I need to set-up a windows server, all the labs were very beneficial. 

Complementary tea, coffee, biscuits and fruit is great, the staff are very friendly and helpful
