Business Analyst training can be of various types:
Instructor lead hands on Classroom-based training: Could be a smaller group or one to one participant ratio. A technical support person available all throughout the course. Issues, questions can be resolved more quickly. The Instructor can focus on individual and answer questions. No interruption in the training. If the individual is going slow, then attention can be given, and it would not affect others as it is a small group or one on one.
Instructor lead hands-on, LIVE, online training: This could be for a small group of people. This is very convenient for people who are from remote places or distant place. It is a very practical way of approach to breaking the barrier of distance. This will be economical and as there is no need for classroom, no need to rent the room.
Online recorded courses: This training can be for an individual, who is working and can spend some time after his work for some time. Easy for people who would like to upgrade their skills. Preferable to those who are working and would like to learn more on the subject to move further in their career. These courses can be cheaper and more flexible.
Remote LIVE training: This training is for a bigger group, online. Because there will be more people, more knowledge and experience sharing among the group. But the disadvantage is the class may go very slow as lot of questions are being asked, individual learning speed also matters.
