Am I able to step away during a live-online training?
We ask that you participate like you would if you were in an in-person class with a punctual arrival, full attention and participation (video required) during class time.
Our trainers are mindful of giving breaks throughout the sessions to give everyone a chance to step away to stretch their legs, make a phone call, etc. If you foresee needing more time, please notify your trainer. No more than 30 minutes can be missed in order to qualify for certification.
Do I need to download special programs before the start of a virtual training?
In order to keep our courses interactive and fun, our coaches have incorporated easy-to-use websites and online collaboration tools to support their lessons, including video breakout rooms to engage and collaborate with your classmates and dive deeper into discussions.
