Frequently Asked Questions

How is the ONLINE LIVE training structured?
We’ve opted to mirror our in-person format as much as possible, so your training will take place over one day. This means you only need to book one day away from other commitments, and can really get into the subject matter.
How is the ONLINE LIVE training delivered?
The online training will be delivered over our webinar platform so you’ll be able to see and hear the trainer (much like a Zoom call) along with their training materials, slides and screen shares. You’ll be able to participate and ask questions etc via your mic or the on screen chat, and depending on the course, your trainer may also make use of web-based online collaboration tools.
When does the course start and finish?
The standard times for our online training are 10am - 4pm (UK time). This may vary slightly from course to course, and if so your trainer will be in touch with specific timings.
What will I need?
To participate in the live online workshops you will need a video conferencing set-up on your computer - ie a computer with speakers / headset and mic. Our webinar platform recommends an ideal connection speed of >10mps, and ideally on a hardline/ cabled connection (rather than over wifi), which offers increased reliability. We’re aware that you will probably be in your day-to-day workspace. We recommend that you put your Out of Office on, and resist the temptation to check emails throughout the day so you can get the most out of the course.
What are the 1-2-1s all about?
Your training page may include mention of 1-2-1s with your trainer as part of the course.This is a (optional) 20 minute consultation with your trainer, which will be bookable directly with them after your training. It is intended to offer the means to ask any specific questions you may have, and may not get the opportunity to ask in the online training format.
What if I am unhappy with the course?
Just like our face to face training courses we want you to be completely satisfied with the course. If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact us within 15 days of your course and we will give you a full refund.
