1. Introduction

This cost savings calculator aims to estimate the total cost of your current training that could be replaced with Blended Learning (VR/AR/Touch Tech/E-Learning) and provide an example price to develop a blended learning solution. This will provide an illustration of cost savings/return on investment over time.
Follow the instructions below and enter relevant information into the orange cells.

2. Estimated Training Time

Enter the typical roles or training courses that require to be trained with the number of people in each role/course and hours of training per role/course per annum. The table below will then calculate the total number of training hours that you currently deliver.

Role or Training Course Number to be trained Hours of Training Total training hours
Estimated number of trainee's, hours of training and total training hours

3. Estimated Training Time

Enter the percent of total training time that you require to be replaced with blended learning (the higher the percentage the greater the savings).

Estimated Total Time Spent Training Percent Hours Days (8 hours)
Training Time
Estimated percent of total training time replaced by Blended Learning

4. Estimated Training Cost

Enter the average costs per day that you currently incur when delivering your existing training programme, these costs include (but are not limited to) staff; trainers; overheads; hire and maintenance of a venue and travel costs etc.
Note: Training Time (based on previous projects) x Total cost per day

Estimated Costs for one days Training for Trainer and Trainee Estimated Costs
Staff/Trainer cost per day (including day rate and loss of operating revenue)
Overhead cost per day (including training materials and hardware, etc)
Venue overheads costs per day (including venue hire or cost of operating training facilities)
Average travel costs per day (travel and subsistence of trainers and trainees)
Total cost per day (including staff/trainer costs, travel, accommodation, venue overheads, subsistence etc)
Total cost of training (not including equipment or materials)(total number of days of training required x the cost per day of training)
Estimated percent of total training time replaced by Blended Learning

5. Estimated Fixed Cost

Enter the total fixed costs to deliver your annual training, these are costs related to capitalised assets or indirect cost. Typical examples have been provided to help you estimate this.
Note: % Saved based on information provided by clients on previous projects

Estimated Fixed Costs per year Estimated Costs Estimated % Saved Estimated Saving
Refresher training costs e.g. Face-to-face training, distance learning, e-learning or self-learning
Production of course material costs e.g. Printing of handouts, workbooks or course content
Training assets costs e.g. Anything from a whole vehicle to an engine or sub components
Administration of data costs e.g. learner data, course data, assessment data
Health & Safety costs e.g. Less claims & accidents through training in a safe environment
Operations costs e.g. Avoidance of interruption to live operations
Time spent maintaining training equipment and replacing parts that are damaged through mistakes made e.g. Anything from a whole vehicle to an engine or sub components
Driving maintenance efficiencies through enhanced digital processes. e.g. cost of carrying out maintenance including time of engineers, tools used and parts replaced.
