Starting this Corporate training will cost nothing
The company will only pay for the employee that has completed the company training program of study effectively. The risk (and cost) of this study company training program is null if the employee is not capable of concluding the distance learning company training. The Bircham International University distance learning company training formula divides the cost of this program in three equal parts: Scholarship - Employee - Company
Third 1: Scholarship of a 33% of the cost of the company training program
The first third is "paid" by the company but actually it is a scholarship granted by Bircham International University if the company is accepted in this special distance learning company training formula. The employee does not know about this discount. From all purposes, the employee considers that it is the company the one that "paid" or advanced the starting costs of his/her distance learning company training program. Neither the company nor the employee have paid anything. The employee perceives that the company has paid one third of the company training program of study.
Third 2: Employee pays 33% of the cost of the company training program
According to our experience, a distance learning company training program is effective when the student is financially involved in it. The student will then make an effort to amortize what he/she is paying and will appreciate even more the initial effort and support of the company. Bircham International University offers payment plans up to 24 monthly installments, so the payment of this third should not be a financial burden at all.
Third 3: Company pays the last 33% of the cost of the company training program
Once the student has completed the distance learning company training program of study, the company will take care of the payment of the last third of the tuition. This payment is conducted with the absolute guarantee that the employee has completed the required training. The cost for the company is one third of the actual cost of the program while the employee's perceived value of this program is much much higher. Bircham International University will not issue the corresponding degree until this third has been paid.
A final optional gift
The company may pay back to the employee all or part of the second third. Bircham International University advices this option to reward those students that got a high grade, or when the employee gets really involved in preparing a final project, out of working hours, that serves to the purposes of the company.
