Virtual classrooms

Most of our education courses are now available online. Our virtual classroom sessions are hosted on Zoom, with interactive elements such as polling and break-out rooms. Virtual classrooms provide an opportunity for inter-team learning, which benefits organisations with staff across different locations. This mode of learning is easy to implement and saves time and money by removing the need for travel. If you are new to this mode of learning, we can work with you to ensure you have what you need to make this a success.
