Success stories:Brigus Group's success comes from a combination of educational and technical expertise. We know how to design courses (our consultants have decades of experience in teaching adults), and we are as at-home creating a textbook as creating an online course.
Our success comes from the depth of our knowledge and the extensive relationships we have developed with technical experts. We focus on the learning experience and bring together all the resources needed to ensure student success.
Our favourite feedback comment came from an instructor. Our client had courses in place and wanted to totally redesign the program. They also wanted to take ownership of the redevelopment so they could maintain the course and develop new ones. We facilitated workshops that taught the redevelopment team how to create a course, we guided them through the course design process and work closely with the subject matter expert to write the course content. When the new course was implemented, one instructor said, "In the old course, some students used to cry because they said it was so hard. Now each section just flows from the last."
Testimonial:This letter constitutes an unequivocal endorsement of the professional standards, co-operation, and commitment to task that I have enjoyed in working with the Brigus Group.
They have helped me deliver an above average product to market in an extremely tight time frame, and their attention to detail and what works for students’ has exceeded our expectations here at Pearson.

Brigus provided professional experience, adult learning knowledge and academic rigor to the engagement. Their services were instrumental in turning market research into a syllabus, learning outcomes and course outlines for CPA’s professional certification programs.
