Hear from others...

I attended the Certificate in Virtual Training to find out and practice the skills required to plan and deliver virtual training using platforms such as Zoom or Microsoft Teams before having to face a ‘live audience’ for the first time. Using virtual platforms is not easy as it is not particularly intuitive. 

The programme really helped me understand the importance of planning how to approach a virtual session and it was so beneficial to have an expert to demonstrate and explain the different techniques and tools available. It has certainly given me confidence to deliver virtually and made my role much less challenging and stressful!"
