    Default In-house training versus fee course

    Most big companies have their own in-house training program unlike small companies which have the fee course as the only recourse when it comes to training their employees. However, most of the fee course training would require the employee to sign a contract that would hold him for a year or two in exchange of the fee that was paid for the training. If you are the CEO of a company, which kind of training would you choose?

    In-house training would always be the ideal route if you want to save up on expenses. Besides, that's what HR, managers and supervisors are supposed to do in addition to overseeing workflow. Managers and supervisors are often sent abroad or to local seminars or symposiums so that they will share the knowledge they glean fro these activities with their subordinates. Some even have the leeway to establish their own system to improve production and workers' performance.

    In-house training trumps any courses all the time because the focus will be on arming workers with knowledge that the company believes will be useful to them. With course however the company has no control over what their workers will learn and what if some of the stuff they learn is of little value to the company?

    My business actually does both, and we will send all our new starters on a specialist course organised by an outside contractor but when they have finished that, we also have them take the in-house course as well. For a lot of people that might seem like a waste of time and money but I found that while the new recruit needs the official training to get any qualification they might need, I also want them to learn how to do things my way as well for want of a better expression and on the official courses they don't always do things the way that I want them to be done.

    I don't have experience with this but if it were me I'm guessing I would just depend that decision on which option would be most comfortable and practical. As much as possible though I think having complete control over everything is still best especially in some industries but if it's not that necessary and the position only requires general knowledge then I'd say going outside the company for training would probably be sufficient.

    An in-house training generally would be a cheaper option and something that can benefit more employees of the company. You can hire specialists to provide training to a whole department if you don't have one that has enough experience and talent to train other people. Our sales department goes through regular in-house sales training conducted by the Sales Manager and the HR Head. That is only because the HR Head happens to be a sales training facilitator/provider. However, there are seminars that are best taken outside for a few select people who need the training to update their skills in their current responsibilities.

    In-house training is the simplest and cheapest way. This allows employees to either learn new essential things to do their job or even improve their skills and be more productive. Training helps to diversify into tasks
