Methods of Delivery
Physical Delivery & Online-tutored courses
For some learners, nothing beats speaking directly to the instructor, as a healthy percentage of communication includes body language and other nonverbal cues. This can be accomplished in physical classrooms as well as live, online events, such as e-classes and webinars.
We are able to provide a tailor-made course either to our state-of-the-art facilities in Athens and Lavrion (Greece) or at selected locations around the World. We can deliver the course at your premises or even organize a suitable venue in your region.
A step forward within today’s interconnected World is the development of online courses delivered by Experts around the World; indeed, a privilege that cannot be underestimated. Plus, it is cost-effective, with the minimum environmental footprint while at the same time safety personnel remain in their position.
For both options, either physical or online, you can select your preferred course and ask for our availability.
Pay As You Go (PAYG) Learning Management System (LMS)
With recorded videos and other asynchronous delivery methods, learners can access content anytime, anywhere they have an Internet connection. When you have a training resource all to yourself, as with a video, you can focus on the features that are most relevant to your work. Most virtual training also allows you to start at the level that makes the most sense for the individual, skipping the stuff that you have already mastered and spending your valuable training time on new material.
Through our PAYG Learning Management System you can select out of a variety of courses that you can attend at your own pace or register for an OPRC OSR / HNS prework Course in order to build a point system that will lead to Certification.

In NGP we believe that training is a core value for learning and awareness, both of which contribute to maintaining a friendly environmental attitude.
However, our planet’s ecosystem is on a turning point and we believe that more need to be done; for this reason we have adopted the UPCYCLING practice in order to re-use materials with multiple benefits for the environment.
