Programme Formats

The APT Programme - designed to suit your learning style and work circumstances

Learning Styles: We understand that individuals learn differently and have developed different learning styles Work demands: We know that every candidate will experience work pressures and will have to work overtime during busy periods

We accommodate individual learning styles and work demands by offering a fully online Case Study based programme, supported by fully integrated classes.

Face to face classes:

These create the opportunity for discussion and debate and also provide the opportunity to learn from personal interaction where individuals meet up with each other and with our facilitators.

Videos of classes:

Videos of all classes are available. Whilst videos cannot provide opportunities for interaction, they are invaluable when you cannot make a class. Candidates have also found our videos to be an excellent back-up to the face to face classes where issues require clarity.



The online nature of our programme, together with the classes, provides the flexibility that is so essential to accommodate individual learning styles and the demands of employers.

We are convinced that face to face classes provide by far the best opportunity to come to grips with the new ideas and competencies which you will encounter in our programme and we strongly encourage you to attend classes wherever possible.


Blended Learning Programme

Run on a national basis with contact session support in all major centres, the Blended Learning Programme makes use of specifically selected contact session based teaching methods, integrating them into online education.

Blended Learning Contact Sessions are available in the following centres:

  • Bloemfontein
  • Cape Town
  • Durban
  • East London
  • George (5 Workshops)
  • Johannesburg
  • Midrand
  • Pietermaritzburg
  • Polokwane (5 Workshops)
  • Port Elizabeth
  • Pretoria
  • Zimbabwe - Harare and Bulawayo
  • Namibia - Windhoek

Online Learning Programme

Our Online Programme allows candidates greater flexibility to studying in their own time, completing work and submitting assignments within a scheduled time frame.

Online Learning Programme students can access our online facilities from any place at any time and will have the opportunity to work in groups

  • We offer five workshops in smaller centres where candidate numbers do not justify the full series of eleven contact sessions. These are presently scheduled for George and Polokwane., but we would expand this to any area that has sufficient candidates.
  • Both course options incorporate a tracking system that enables students to monitor their own programme progress and competency development.
  • Students can partake in the course in their own time from just about anywhere.




Programme Material Available in English or Afrikaans

  • Vir Afrikaans sprekende studente is die kursusmateriaal ook in Afrikaans beskikbaar.
  • A candidate may request the material in either English or Afrikaans, but is entitled to only one copy.
