Total Immersion

By Ashraf Al Shafaki


Total immersion training is a method of training that fully immerses trainees into the environment that is conductive to learning the skills, knowledge and behavior they are desired to learn. Learning takes place in a holistic way rather than in an analytical way.


Participants achieve deep and rapid learning through:

  1. Observing the trainer perform the required skills and behavior while applying the knowledge required
  2. Reflecting on their colleagues while they are performing activities that employ skills, knowledge and behavior required
  3. Performing activities that involved the required skills, behavior and knowledge while getting feedback from the trainer and from their colleagues


  • Participants learn very fast
  • Participants learn an enormous amount of knowledge, skills and behaviors
  • Learning is more permanent
  • The learning process is not stressful
