We are living in an increasingly digitalised and globalised world. Why not use this for the best?

In 2014, MDF started our first blended course in which traditional face-to-face training is combined with online sessions. Over years, our ONLINE TRAINING SERVICE, which allows remote learning with the same quality and more flexible time, has been successfully developed and recognized.

Online learning is so much more than sharing resources online! It requires a diversified set of tools, skills and pedagogic insight to design interactive and facilitated online courses in the form of either virtual classrooms or individual coaching session.

So, there is no need for any interruption in your career and self development, despite Covid-19 pandemic! Join MDF Asia online training “Writing Winning Proposals” this August and enjoy your virtual learning experience. Here is the course information:
