Classroom training is still the number one choice for the majority of companies, according to IT Skills Research. At the same time, Internet training took a small jump from 57 per cent in 2002 to 59 per cent in 2003. These figures show that classroom training is still the most popular method in the IT training market but John Durbin, director of IT Skills Research, believes blended learning will continue to eat into the market share.
