Online Virtual Classroom – how it works

The course will be delivered through blended training consisting of 5 virtual classroom sessions with assessments and examinations taking place on the 5th Saturday. During the Online Virtual Classroom sessions, trainees will have a live video feed with their instructor talking to them, doing practical live demonstrations on equipment shipped to you and involved you actively in the learning.

In preparation for this, we plan to have a quick informal online meeting a few days before course commencement for about an hour just to make sure that people get connected in properly, let you know what the online virtual classroom will be like and go through any questions you may have. To join the virtual sessions, you will need a PC/Laptop or Tablet with an internet connection. Joining instructions (logon IDs, etc) will be sent before the Informal Induction session.
