ILT…Is It Still the Gold Standard?

Your Training Edge

In the training world, we often refer to instructor-led-training (ILT) as the gold standard.

Research shows that today’s workers retain knowledge better and they are more engaged at companies that have adopted the 70:20:10 learning model. Classroom-based, instructor-led training (ILT), required readings and virtual ILT are all good examples of formal learning.
