Help shape the future of RYA training and your learning
The RYA want your views
The RYA would like to hear your views on what you want from RYA courses. From what you think about current RYA courses to what you would like to see offered in the future and what type of course format you prefer. Shape your learning by helping to shape RYA training courses at http://www.ryainteractive.org. The survey is anonymous and is open until the end of April 2012.
Richard Falk RYA Training Manager explains “We’re always looking at ways to improve the courses that we offer, and to ensure that we are delivering courses which suit people’s needs and which are delivered in a format that works for them. The best way for us to ensure that we are doing this is to listen, which is what the survey is all about.
“The survey has been running since the beginning of January and it has been really interesting reading the responses that we have received to date.
“For instance, over 50% of the people who have completed the survey so far have said that they would prefer to take a practical course over a short, intense period of 3-5 days rather than a modular course taught over a longer period of time. Whilst we may think something like this is what people want, the only way we can be sure is to hear it directly from the customer.
So let us know what you want from RYA courses. Do you prefer to learn online or in the classroom? Do you feel that the syllabus needs changing on some courses, or that the format of instruction is outdated? Or are you happy with the range and delivery of RYA courses in their current form? Fill in the survey at www.ryainteractive.org. If you complete the survey you can also enter the prize draw to win a selection of RYA publications.
