Live virtual courses

Our live virtual courses are delivered in a remote learning format and are led by the very same tutors who teach face-to-face. Our accelerated live virtual courses (which are 2.5 hours in length) are especially good for those seeking practical learning. All live virtual courses offer equivalent CPE points, content and learning materials.

Why take our live virtual courses?

  • Study undistracted: From work or home.
  • Learn and interact: With fellow delegates in a dynamic online training environment combining video, voice and chat messaging.
  • Share and exchange: Ideas using sophisticated virtual dashboards that allow for easy conversation and discussion.  

What you need

  • A digital device with video and audio functionality: A laptop or tablet device with a camera and microphone will do just fine.
  • A reliable internet connection: That supports video conferencing.
