Live online training
Live online training lets you participate in a course from your place of work or home.
You participate in the same course as in-class delegates, and we do everything possible to make your online training experience as close as possible to actually being in the classroom…
- You can see and hear your trainer and the other course delegates.
- Our trainer and the other delegates can see you (via your webcam) and hear you.
- We’ll post you a printed training guide, and make the course files and resources available for you to download.
- Your training is hands-on – you’ll practice and carry out exercises throughout.
- If you’re learning to use an application and don’t have access to the software, we’ll send you a link to fully-functional trial software that you can download and install.*
- If you need assistance, you can share your screen with our trainer, and pass control to them.
- Your course carries the same accreditations as our in-class courses, e.g. it is an Autodesk-accredited course, or an Adobe-accredited course.
- Should you want to send a private message to your trainer, you can do so using chat.
- You’re entitled to 30 days’ email support from your trainer.
When you attend live online training, you’re participating in a real course, hosted by a real trainer, in real time.

“I'd like to thank Crow again for delivering these sessions. Even though the course was online it was still very engaging and enjoyable, and I learned a lot over the week.”
