Demand for Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT) continues
The increased clamor on virtual training represents the yearning to discover, learn and upskill, whether for professional or personal development.
This is a testament on how the education landscape has adapted to a strongly digital approach in the Philippines and worldwide.
Last May, SGS Academy conducted 8 virtual training courses to the Food, AUTO/EE and Service sectors.
- ISO 9001:2015 Lead Auditor Course
- ISO 9001:2015 QMS Internal Audit Course
- FSSC v5 Implementation Course
- ISO 22000:2018 Documentation Course
- HACCP Training
- ISO 17025:2017 Foundation Course
- ISO 17025:2017 Internal Audit Course
- ISO 31000 Risk Management Course
We are very much happy with the turnout of the virtual classes. As we organize to execute more virtual training courses and work on continual improvement, we would like to share the experiences of some of our clients on this training methodology.
“At first I was apprehensive as I was used to face-to-face trainings with active interaction between facilitator and participants. With the SGS VILT programs that I’ve attended however, the facilitators were still able to actively engage participants and even have small group works through chat rooms. It was actually more convenient for me as I didn’t have to brave the Makati traffic and I was able to undergo the training in the comfort of our home. Materials were sent ahead of time and logistical arrangements (including the Zoom platform) were great. “
“I hope SGS will continue offering VILT programs even after the COVID situation has been resolved. “

“It went well. Concerns like audio & video quality but most likely attributable to personal internet connection; Online training limitations include fast response between trainer & learners, limitations on the use of Whiteboard & other educational tools.”
“Trainer was excellent; Waiting concern for other trainees / learners.”

“It was the first virtual training I’ve ever attended and I am foreign to Zoom at the time. It kinda worried me a bit that dealing with technicalities might affect the time allotted for training, but that wasn’t the actual case. Overall I say it went easily than expected, like not a single birth pain. Sure new normal is technologically challenging but new learnings also pushes us to leverage our ways of working.”
“Good to have a tech-knowledgeable training facilitator (props to Clang) who’s always ready to assist both trainees and the trainer with the program flow, modules, and break-out sessions. Her role is very crucial in making life easier for everyone.”
