How Does a Live Online Training Day Work?

Prior to a live online training day all delegates will have been sent a link to join the online training session.

Delegates are invited to join the meeting 10 minutes early to ensure everyone is up and running and ready to start the course.

The trainer will have their camera on and will welcome you to the training session. The trainer will ensure that everyone is comfortable with their set up and can see and hear the trainer clearly. All delegates will be reminded that if they have any questions, throughout the day, they are welcome to ask. The trainer wants everyone to enjoy the day and will endeavour to make everyone feel comfortable.

Live online full training days will include a morning and afternoon 10-minute break, as well as an hour lunch.

Timings can be adjusted to suit you requirements.

Monitor Suggestions

Two monitors are ideal for training. However, there a are a lot of creative ways to utilise other devices such as iPad's, TV etc....

You may not have 2 monitors linked; however, you can join the Zoom/Teams training session with your iPad and then follow along on your laptop/PC screen. This will free up your complete screen. The only downside of this, is that you will not be able to share your screen with the trainer. The trainer will be able to share their screen with you, however.

If I Have 1 Monitor - How can I Split my Screen?

To split a screen in Windows 10, drag a window all the way to one side of the screen until it snaps into place. Then select another window to fill the other half of your screen. View the help video below showing you how to split your screen.

Short-cut: Windows & left or right arrow.
