Competency Development & Training

We believe that people learn best by actively putting knowledge into practice.  In addition to our regular public courses, we also offer Outcome-Based Applied Learning; live Simulation for our clients. With applied learning, an expert consultant from Vellicate will come onsite and tailor our course content to meet your unique needs.   We also arrange for coaching and mentoring, so that an expert can provide your team with onsite guidance on an actual project.

Our Outcome-Based Applied Learning has been at the core of our training approach since our founding in 2009. Outcome-Based Learning focuses on the benefits you can expect. The learning is delivered on an assessment based tailored improvement. Virtually any of our courses can be structured as applied learning platforms to achieve outcomes such as these examples:
