A Word About Synchronous and Asynchronous Educational Modes

RuleSphere is an emerging leader in the world of "asynchronous (self-paced) education". Why? Because this is the best strategy to lower a company’s cost per employee for GRC and other education and training challenges. It's a Critical Success Factor and one of the most important strategies to consider for sustaining your GRC or other courseware portfolio. Then, once your firm has the basics covered (using self-paced courses as a foundation), we can add live, "synchronous courses", where it makes good business sense.


Self-Paced and Live GRC Courses 
for 2014

Notes:

 The course and seminar durations provided below are, in most cases, related to synchronous (live) courses conducted off the web.

 Most of the courses can be adjusted to varying timeframes and web delivery.

 Remember to consider bundling our education with a Professionals’ Networked Community (PNC) platform on the web to host one or more Special Interest Groups (SIG’s) such as a Community-of-Practice (CoP) for Internal Audit and Security Professionals, as well as Communities-of-Interest (CoI) for any roles that are involved with GRC processes and COSO Enterprise Risk Management (ERM).
