Are you unsure about remote training? Read this!

If you’re used to attending classroom-based training, the idea of remote training through a computer screen might seem a little daunting. But there’s really no need to worry, it’s all quite straightforward and there are plenty of reasons why you should embrace the technology:

worried about online training

Firstly, there’s no need to travel anywhere. You can train from the comfort of your own home – or even your garden if the weather’s fine! Anyone, anywhere in the world, can book onto one of our live remote training sessions because distance is no barrier. This will also save you time and money!

Secondly, you don’t require any special equipment to be able to attend. All you need is your laptop, PC, tablet or even your smart phone! They just need to have a camera, microphone and speakers, which are generally built-in.  We send you a link via email to join the training session. Click on it and you’re in!

Remote but together

Thirdly, you can see, hear and interact with the trainer and other delegates on the course, whilst practising the ultimate in social distancing. The training is live, so it will start and finish at designated times, just like a regular course.

A member of staff from Verner Wheelock will also log in to welcome you and assist with any technical issues you might have. We generally use the Zoom platform, so many of you will already be familiar with this through keeping in touch with friends and family. Don’t panic if you’ve never used it before, we’ll take you through it. Or if you like, you can contact us before the course on 01756 700802 and one of the team will give you a demo and show you how easy it is.

Just like our regular training courses

Every remote session is delivered by an experienced and professional trainer from Verner Wheelock. You will be able to interact with them by asking questions directly or by messaging. You’ll also have the opportunity to do group exercises, just as you would on one of our classroom-based courses. This is one of the advantages traditional classroom-based training has over the usual ‘click through’ online courses, but now you can have the best of both worlds.

Essentially, we have done everything we possibly can to replicate our face-to-face training and it is working really well. Just look at some of the feedback we’ve received to some recent remote courses.

Plenty of remote courses on offer
