How it works
Our training sessions last approximately 2 hours, providing 2 structured CPD points. They consist of 3 parts:
- A 60 minute powerpoint presentation
- 30 minutes of questions from viewers which are read out and answered by the presenter.
- 30 minutes’ optional audience discussion of presentation topic, challenges and success stories.
You will also be given bonus material to help you evidence your attendance and record learning outcomes.
Where possible, you will receive a recording afterwards which will be active for a limited period of time. If you cannot attend on the evening, you may purchase the recording after the event.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
What is a webinar?
It’s a seminar carried out over the Internet. Think web + seminar = webinar. It’s a simple process to get up and running. We will help you with the set up if you need it. Just don’t leave it to the last minute to try it out! The presenter will share their screen with you and provide both slides and an explanation for you to follow along. You will have the opportunity to pose questions to the presenter and have them answered.
Do I need a webcam?
No. Unless otherwise stated, you will not be seen on the webinar. You will need speakers or a means to listen to the webinars which will be presented in English.
