How Courses Work
Mike McFadyean is a Durban based independent trainer / instructor; he offers training in the Durban area mainly; however, by special arrangement, training can be done in other parts of the country, region and beyond. This will involve additional costs to the client to cover travel and accommodation.
Course lessons can be facilitated “one-on-one”, i.e. individual tuition, or to groups.
Once you have made contact with Mike, suitable dates and times will be discussed.
Please refer to the costing details for individual courses.
Payment can be made for the full course in advance, or on a per lesson basis. EFT or cash.
No training will take place before payment for that specific lesson is received.
Please refer to the specific course details.
For those courses that are certificated - learners will be provided with a PDF certificate upon meeting the course requirement for certification.
For one-on-one tuition, the learner can either attend lessons at Mikes home studio (Musgrave, Durban), or the Mike can come to your home or office and conduct on-site training.
For groups, lessons must take place at your premises (on-site).
Note that if Mike has to travel beyond the Durban City Limits, an additional nominal per lesson amount will be levied for travel costs (depending on distance). Generally, this means further than the Prospecton, Pinetown and La Lucia radius from the Durban CBD.
Learners will receive lesson-by-lesson notes (in PDF format) that cover all the information and exercises done in lessons.
Supplementary reading, tutorials and other material will be supplied.
During and after the course, learners can continue to communicate with Mike via email regarding ad hoc help, queries and general relevant assistance. Note that this is not an unlimited service.
Ad Hoc Sessions
Sometimes you may not need to sign-up for a full course. You may already know an application, but may require a brush-up or an update or to cover items in more detail and skip the beginner stuff. You may even have a few specific questions that you want answered. In cases like this, Mike offers "Ad Hoc Question & Answer sessions" where you can book for a 2 hour contact session and cover specifically what you want to cover.
It is important to note that Ad Hoc sessions do not come with any prepared course notes, and the minimum booking is a 2 hour session. As much as possible is covered in this time based on the "wish-list" that the learner has provided Mike in advance; however, there is no guarantee that ALL the questions and material will be covered in 2 hours. Normally a learner will book one session, email Mike a list of items to cover and then if necessary further sessions will be booked.
A 2 hour Ad Hoc session costs R1000.00. To be paid in advance of the session.
