Expert trainer

ChatGPT – Essential skills for business courses are hosted by Simon Dry, a highly-experienced design professional and AI expert, who embraces ways that the emerging AI technology can be utilised by business to improve productivity and maximise potential.

How will I learn?

Training combines lecture, demonstration and hands-on practice.

Practical exercises provide activity-based experience using ChatGPT on both desktop and mobile devices. These exercises can be tailored to deal with issues specific to your business. You have ample opportunity to discuss specific requirements with the trainer.

If you’re attending a course in-class, we’ll provide you with a desktop computer running licensed ChatGPT software. We ask that you bring your own mobile device to use throughout the course.

If you’re participating in a course online, you’ll require access to licensed ChatGPT running on both a desktop computer and mobile device. Many of the techniques taught can’t be carried out on the free version of ChatGPT.
