The ‘20 Minute Rule’ and Our Philosophy
Our curriculum is painstakingly created and expertly edited to provide our students with the most important components of each core topic. Since we edit out the extraneous information and anecdotes, getting to know your activities and restroom and meal breaks, our students are able to receive the same content in our 20 minute, online, training modules that they would receive in a full-day, in-person lecture.”
What is the ‘20 Minute Rule’…..The 20 minute rule states that no presentation portion will be longer than ~20 minutes before breaking for an activity of some type as it is recognized that 20 minutes is the max attention span for a student without a break.
This methods guides our curriculum and this philosophy ensures our students are at maximum learning potential throughout the entire training module.
