Introducing – our AAT Live Online Classes

People learn in different ways. 

The core Training Link study experience is to work through our study manuals with tutor support, access to pre-recorded videos, and online mock exams – but live online classes are increasingly popular. And for some, they’re invaluable.

We always highlight the flexibility of studying by distance learning. There are plenty of our students who can’t stick to a rigid college timetable so studying when you want, where you want suits them.

However, some fear that flexibility can lead to procrastination. They worry that without scheduled classes they’ll put their studies off. 

If that sounds like you, then you’ll appreciate the live online classes that can be found in our ‘Blended Live’ course package. In fact, we’ve just scheduled the next 12 months’ worth of classes.

Live online classes are in our Blended Live package

On our ‘Blended Live’ course package you’ll still enjoy all of the benefits of our standard ‘Blended’ course package but with the addition of scheduled live online classes which take place every two weeks. And if you miss a live session, you can watch them on-demand shortly afterwards.

Here’s our current live class schedule
