[BL-HL-DR-5] What is a DRP-5000 Blended [BL] and Hybrid [HL] Learning Course?

As we are at the endemic stage of the COVID-19 outbreak, participants at BCM Institute are asking, "Should I return to attend the "brick-and-mortar" Disaster Recovery (DR) onsite course [DRP-5000] or continue with the 100% blended learning [BL-DR-5] online course?"

What are the differences between blended learning and hybrid learning courses? What is the course content? How is the module conducted? What I should know before enrolling on the course?

You are now viewing an advanced level IT disaster recovery course that starts you to be grounded on IT Disaster Recovery fundamentals before understanding the disaster recovery concepts and the IT DR planning processes to develop and implement the IT DR plan.  Finally, you will be expected to have a detailed understanding of what encompasses the continuous maintenance or upgrading of your IT DR Programme.

Overview of DRP-5000 [BL & HL] IT Disaster Recovery Course

IC_BL-DR-5_DRP5000

As we begin our learning journey to return to the "new normal", BCM Institute will start its Hybrid Learning [HL] course beginning the last quarter of 2022. It will continue offering all its certification courses with Blended Learning [BL] approach for modules 1 and 2.

Participants will have the option to continue Modules 3 and 4 as online BL courses. Any option is to attend a two-day onsite face-to-face workshop.

This protracted time frame for Modules 1 and 2 allows one to understand the concepts taught in digestible bite sizes with targeted online interactions.

As for Modules 3 and 4, care and consideration have been implemented to ensure that the content and syllabus are of the same standard and rigour as our onsite classes.

Here is a quick overview of the entire course, divided into modules 1 to 4.  The learning roadmap below depicts the explanation of Modules 1 to 4 and their relationship to the 300-400-5000 level courses offered.  Modules 1 and 2 will be blended even if you attend the hybrid learning [HL].

What are the Differences and Concerns?

New call-to-actionConcerns: The primary concern with blended learning is that it will be another direct conversion to eLearning training over video channels.  The entire process is designed such that the content will provide the same outcome.

Click the icon on the right to learn more about the difference between Blended Learning and Hybrid Learning offered by BCM Institute.

Instructors: Do note that instructors delivering the modules remain the same as the onsite training.  You will learn from more than three instructors who manage IT DR programmes in their organisations. 

International Participation: Another significant change will be the participation of more international delegates compared to the traditional majority of Asian participants.  Be expected to discuss and work as teams from different parts of the world.  The richness in the sharing has always been the strength of our courses.

Readings: Be expected to have more pre-readings as the objective is to ensure that knowledge that could be acquired via reading should be done outside the training session.  More time is allocated to sharing experiences from the participants and facilitators.
