What is a live online course like?
Course modules are run over a number of days as detailed in the course profile.
Each module includes a one-hour webinar led by one of our experienced and friendly tutors.
Our webinars are run using either Zoom or Microsoft Teams – if you haven’t used Zoom or Teams before, we have some short and snappy video tutorials to guide you through.
We keep our classes small and personal so there will always be an opportunity to ask questions and discuss topics.
Following each webinar, there will be content available for you to download to consolidate your new skills.
You will also be able to access our “reminder videos” and download a comprehensive course manual covering all the relevant theory – and more!
Following the webinar, there will be an optional 30-minute online follow-up session with your tutor to answer any final queries or questions you may have.
That’s it – you are ready to excel!
You will have access to your course exercises and reminder videos for a full 6 months after your course.
And we are here to offer 6 months of support and advice too!
