YOU CAN TAKE OUR COURSES FOUR WAYS:
And soon there'll be a fifth option: by sitting one of our self-guided online courses. They're authored by the same experts who facilitate our live courses but are designed to be taken at your own pace and in your own time with the same access to our brilliant client-only training resources. Think flight simulator.
BOOKING - AS EASY AS 1, 2, 3, 4, (5)...
All you have to do is navigate to the course of your choice and opt for your preferred delivery method. Or weigh up the pros and cons and prices of each option first.
ZOOM, TEAMS, WEBEX...
We use a range of platforms to deliver our interactive, facilitator-led training - live from our brand new, purpose-built, online training studio. Our first choice is Zoom because we reckon it's the easiest for non-techy trainees to get to grips with. But we know some organisations are concerned about its security so, within reason, we're happy to use whatever system you choose.
NOT INTO THE BOOM ZOOM?
We absolutely get that not everybody wants the live, interactive experience of our virtual training studio; that some of you would much rather learn at your own pace, in your own time, in private. So we’re also authoring a series of self-guided courses - the fifth option mentioned above. Think of them as a series of videos – each one in the box set short enough not to induce screen blindness or deep vein thrombosis. If at any point you’d like a bit of supplementary one-to-one help from our trainers then you only have to ask.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE PANDEMIC IS ALL OVER?
One thing’s for sure – we'll continue to offer online training. We think that for a whole heap of reasons virtual is not just the unavoidable present but the future too. Which is why we've invested in a brand new virtual training studio. That said we know that some of you may be hoping for our face-to-face workshops to restart. All we can say for now is they may! But not in a hurry. And not until it's entirely safe. So why wait to fulfil those urgent training needs? Book an online course today.
Here's a list of all the courses we're currently offering online. Some are scheduled to book as open courses in the coming weeks and months. Others operate a waitlist system or are available only to order. Click on the magnifying glass to see a short overview of each course or on the name to read the full description.
Some courses are fiendishly difficult to categorise so if you canít find what youíre looking for under this heading maybe itís listed elsewhere. You can check on the complete range on our A-Z course finder page.
We've launched an "Ask the Owls" service to complement our training. It's an opportunity to - you've guessed - ask our trainers all those things you forgot to ask during our live, interactive online sessions. Here I am answering a professor (gulp) of civil engineering who wants to know if it's possible to prepare for a media interview in just five minutes...
The one with the matches - how a live experiment on social distancing didn't go entirely to plan!
The importance of rehearsals - how to practice for media interviews with your smartphone.
"An excellent training session, very well run and very engaging. I would go as far as to say probably the best training session I have ever been on."
