Virtual Training

The technology that we use to deliver our courses has been specifically designed to ensure that the learning experience is just as effective as if you are in one of our training centres. The same experienced instructors deliver our virtual training courses and we limit the number of attendees to ensure each one receives the right amount of individual support and attention.

At Our Training Centres

Each of our training suites is laid out classroom style for a maximum of 6 delegates. This class size ensures that the pace of the course is not adversely affected, learning is maximised and there is enough individual time for everyone to ask questions. Each person will have their own PC, with the appropriate course software installed and will be provided the relevant course material. Lunch and refreshments are available throughout the course.

At Your Offices

All the training we offer can be provided onsite at your office location with the minimum of travel disruption and with the whole team together. The training will take place in a designated area away from general office activity to ensure that delegates are not disturbed and are free to give their full attention to the training.
