  • Hands-On Training: Depending on the subject matter, ILT may include hands-on exercises, practical demonstrations, or simulations to reinforce learning.
  • Career counseling: Career counseling is a process of providing guidance and support to individuals in making informed career decisions. It involves assessing their skills, interests, and goals to help them choose suitable career paths and develop strategies for achieving their professional objectives.
