Virtual Training FAQs

See below for an overview and answers to our most frequently asked questions.

Why choose Virtual Instructor Led Training?

Virtual classroom training offers an interactive learning experience that shares many benefits of in-person instructor-led courses. But with virtual training you can receive live online classroom training wherever you are. A facilitator delivers the virtual training in real time, which allows participants to engage with the facilitator and each other. All participants require:

  • Laptop or desktop computer with high-speed Internet
  • Webcam (mandatory for select courses)
  • Headset or Earbuds (highly recommended)
  • Adobe Connect Meeting Application (instructions to install below)

How your workplace benefits:

  1. It offers greater accessibility, especially for operations with multiple or remote locations.
  2. It frees you from the restrictions of distance, especially if your learners can’t spare the travel time or are located far from conventional training locations.
  3. It minimizes participants' away time. Learners can be on the job minutes before and immediately after the training.
  4. It could save you money. At a time when travel is not encouraged, put your company's travel budget toward training instead.
