Why E-learning, why

ASTRA 

ASTRA Academy is flexible with regards to course design and implementation. Courses are offered in response to our clients' needs. They can be designed to be either e-learning, webinars, "blended" courses or full face-to-face courses.

E-learning offers individuals the unique opportunity to obtain a whole range of  FSC-related qualifications, regardless of your location and band with of your internet connection.

You do not always have the time or the financial means to attend a face-to-face course,  offered somewhere in the world. The internet platform brings this world to your home or work environment and gives you the flexibility to complete your required qualifications in your own time. The ASTRA e-learning platform is user-friendly and will allow you to take certification courses in all important areas such as forest management, chain of custody, trademark use and ethical biotrade.

ASTRA only selects highly competent and appropriately qualified mentors. Your qualification is as well recognized as any face-to-face course, but you have the advantage of one-on-one interaction with your mentor – something which is sometimes difficult in the classroom environment.

Additionally, ASTRA is flexible with regards to course design and implementation. Courses can be developed according to the needs of our clients, they can be designed to be either face-to face courses, internet based courses (e-learning), or "blended" courses. 

 

"Blended" learning offers trainee auditors the advantages  of both face-to face courses and e-learning, saving resources and still allowing the development of practical skills through the application of participatory learning techniques. This way of teaching the content and the application of standards has been used for 5 years now to teach auditors in several standard systems, such as FSC and RSB.
