 4. One-to-One and Private Training — Remotely or at Your Location

one to one or face to face training in online accounting study training courses and videos

One-to-one training is an effective form of training for ongoing bookkeeping work or one-off tasks. It’s also a great way to drill down into specifics about your situation or business when combined with an online training course.

If training a group of people, one-to-one group training, or face-to-face training is particularly beneficial for ensuring that everyone learns at a consistent pace, and that the emphasis is placed on the same information as required.

When learning privately on a one-to-one basis either remotely, or direct face-to-face, there’s also the ability to delve into greater detail about the individual circumstances of your business or organisation.

Our one-to-one trainers, whether working face-to-face or remotely, are committed to actively listening to you and helping you learn. The learning is student-driven and personal; with a high degree of openness in the sharing of information and asking of questions.

 Why Combine One-to-One Training with a Training Course?

Tracey-ONeill-Xero-Certified-BAS-Agent-Bookkeeper-for-bookeeping-training-and-consultingI’ve been a Bookkeeper for more than 20 years and find more and more business owners are asking for training because today’s bookkeeping tasks aren’t quite as easy as the software companies make out. Learning how to use bookkeeping software one-to-one combined with an online course is a great way to learn because, as a trainer, I cover all the topics my clients need in a logical order which follows the flow of the course and which will also help them in their daily operations, but clients can also learn what they need to specific to their own situation.”

What People Say About Our Trainers

Thank you Natbooks! The training was excellent. Tracey was a great teacher and we had a lot of fun. I learned a lot as different scenarios were popping up all the time and Tracey was able to take me through solving them in the time we had together. I’m so glad I chose one-to-one training because I would not have been able to do the setup. Group training would not have taught me how to do this. With one-to-one I found it was relevant to my business only and could straight away apply what I was learning in real time to my business instead of a trial business. Many thanks!”

— Donna Larder, Administrator, BOULDER WALLS & BOBCAT HIRE PTY LTD

After one-to-one training I experienced so much relief! I believe I saved myself hours of guesswork, but more importantly, I know that everything had been set up correctly and that I had the tools and support to keep it running smoothly in the future.”

— Tabitha Chen, Interior Designer, ULTIMO, Sydney
