Do you offer private training worldwide? Can your instructor come to us?
Yes. Before the pandemic, we would send one of our expert instructors to you wherever you are in the world. Private course engagements have taken our instructors all over Europe, North America, the Caribbean, and the Middle East. Post-pandemic, customers are choosing to have their private training take place online via Teams.
Can team members attend private training remotely by Teams or Skype?
Yes. Our instructors are highly skilled in running private training courses which include some students in the classroom and others attending live via Teams. And we get excellent feedback from those attending remotely. During the pandemic, all private courses took place live via Teams.
We’re not sure which course or courses will best meet our needs. Can you advise?
Our business development manager Mark Forbes is an expert in organizing private courses catering to the needs of organizations of all sizes. Let him know what you are trying to achieve, and he will be delighted to make recommendations. Email Mark today.
We have people at different skill levels. Can they be trained together?
In principle yes – but it depends on the levels. We wouldn’t recommend mixing beginners and those with IT pros with years of practice, but on a private course our instructor can spend more time with those that are finding things a bit more challenging, while those more familiar with the subject can dig deeply into the lab exercises.
Can we have a custom course?
We are more than happy to structure a course to suit you, and to advise you on which parts of our standard courses need to be emphasised or de-emphasised depending on your specific environment and requirements.
We always do our best to reuse existing materials as far as possible but, if we have to develop new materials to meet your needs, we will give you a quote.
How many students do I need to make up a private course, and what will it cost?
Private courses can be run for IT teams of any size. We have run successful courses for as few as 2 students and as many as 15.
A group of 5 or more will work out cheaper per student than if the individuals attended a public course. But smaller private classes, more narrowly focused on the specific needs of an organization, can sometimes achieve more.
Please see our guide prices.
If we host private training, what do we need to provide?
If you choose to have our instructor come to you, all you need to provide is a comfortable, quiet room with a reliable internet connection and a projector. Ideally it will be set out boardroom style, with a whiteboard available. And each of your team will need to have access to a suitable PC or laptop.
We will provide everything else for a successful course – except lunch and refreshments!
Do you offer “chalk and talk” sessions?
Yes, we often run a “chalk and talk” session as an extra day at the end of a private course. This type of session does not rely on existing (or custom) content. The instructor will draw on their experience to provide an educational session that addresses your specific questions and implementation.
It is an opportunity for you to go into greater detail about topics of particular interest, to discuss any additional strategic or operational matters, and to talk about how what has been learned can be applied in your organization.
What do IT teams who have had private training say about it?
Paul [the trainer] was both very knowledgeable and personable. His ability to relay complex information is a critical reason why we are planning to have him back. Study and lab materials were amazingly detailed, concise and accurate. Great job. Thank you so much.
