Logistics

Live Events

You will be asked to provide a projector with a VGA or HDMI connection and appropriate cables and power supplies, a suitable training facility, meeting room or conference space, internet connectivity, and the appropriate software (if required) installed on each attendees computer. If this is impractical, you will communicate to attendees the version of software from which the training will be delivered. It is possible to support multiple versions of software during a hands-on training. However, less material may be able to be covered.

Online Events

To avoid any firewall issues, you will be asked to provide an online webinar portal service for the event. A “tech test” will be needed at least one week prior to the event to validate usability.

Capacity

Hands-on classes for software topics are limited to 20 attendees. Additional students may be added if the client provides at least 1 classroom assistant (skilled computer user) per every additional 10 students. Seminar (interactive, but hands-off) engagements are limited to the capacity of your meeting space.
