How it works?
The model of pedagogical trainees preparation, in B-learning format, is based on a modular logic that enhances the interventions of each trainee. Throughout 4 face-to-face sessions (4 Saturdays) and 20 pre-recorded sessions in an E-learning format of 3 hours each, the trainee can participate at his own pace by accessing the recordings.
The sessions will be held on 18 March, 15 and 29 of April and 6 of May 2017. The first will aim to present and clarify all the principles that will be adopted during the operation, including those related to the platform as well as to address the main concepts of initiation and project planning. In the second face-to-face session, the nine areas of knowledge discussed in the sessions that have been recorded and in the E-learning format will be reviewed and all doubts clarified. In the last face-to-face sessions, the knowledge area related to Integration will be reviewed, with a large space dedicated to discussing and closing the remaining issues.
The 20 pre-recorded sessions that will be held between March 21 and April 4 will be held on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, the processes of each area of knowledge of the PMBOK® Guide will be addressed, carried out two exam simulations and the best way to achieve the right answers.
The video conference sessions every Friday from the 17th of March to the 5th of May have the objective of reviewing the pre-recorded material, with the presence of one of the 1stOnly Talent® trainers to coordinate the discussion about the week and indicate points of improvement and work. Although it is possible to follow these sessions also through the recordings, we recommend that the trainees have the objective of attending this weekly meeting.
