What is a Virtual Training Course you may ask? Rather than have our trainer travel to you to deliver a course, our trainer will join you via our conference system to deliver the course.

It means you can get your team together where ever they are based. You can get the team together in the same room. Or, have individuals join from where they are based.

Our Virtual Training Courses are normally one day in length and we deliver them in all subjects that are available on our site.

Because there is no travel involved, they are very cost-effective and good for the environment too.

We’ve made sure that you don’t lose any of the benefits of having a trainer with you in the room. Our Virtual Training Courses are still interactive, come with training materials and also include exercises, case studies and discussions.
