speaker presentation

We have been delivering online training for many years and know how to ensure the interaction is the same as if you were in a classroom.

The trainer will share his screen to allow you to follow the training session, which will be very practical. Our trainer will include polls, group work, exercises, discussions and breaks.

The course will be 50% pre-recorded, on-demand material that can be accessed at the delegates preferred time. 50% will be delivered ‘live’ with the trainer – timings of this will be flexible in order to best meet the requirements of the demographics of the delegates.

You will be able to ask questions, give feedback and participate in the practical sessions. Class sizes will be capped to ensure every delegate will be guaranteed quality time with the trainer.
