CCL Academy’s Virtual Training (VT) courses are designed to be every bit as engaging as our face-to-face courses. To achieve this our trainers utilise market-leading technology, and a range of training techniques, to ensure high levels of interaction with participants. Each live video tutorial includes the use of:

  • Virtual ‘break-out’ rooms: participants are divided into virtual rooms, to facilitate small group discussion.
  • Polling: multiple-choice questions, answered anonymously, allow the trainer to assess knowledge and understanding across the group.
  • Case studies: true to life case studies and scenarios are used to explore practical application of theoretical knowledge.
  • Messaging: participants are able to submit questions, either to the whole group or privately to the trainer.

Additional Benefits:

  • Accompanying recording of the video tutorial - In addition to the live event, all video tutorials will be available ‘on demand’.
  • Two free eLearning modules for all participants.
  • On-going Q&A – Participants will have access to an ongoing Q&A facility allowing them to ask questions relating to the course.
