Remote Learning with Keys Training® – How Does it Work?

We use 2 main screen sharing software solutions Zoom and Microsoft Teams, which allows us to deliver training and speak to attendees in real time. All you need to join is an Internet connection and sound capabilities, which are common on most PC’s, MAC’s and Laptops, allowing you to hear, see and ask questions to our trainer.

How do I ask questions? At the start of the session our trainer will show you how to mute and unmute to speak to the trainer. We will also show you how to use Chat – so that you can send instant messages if you would like or if you require extra assistance.

How do I join? On the day of the course just open our web link which will be sent to you and you can join without the software installed. Most packages will ask you if you want to install the app or if you want to join online without. It is best to try this out at least 15 minutes before the session.

If you are new to remote training we can offer a practice run before the event to give you some reassurance or allow you to join early.

How many people might there be on a session? We are keeping all the sessions to a maximum of 8 people to allow our trainer to answer questions and give assistance when needed.

Will there be practice time for me to understand the topics covered? Yes, you will be sent the training files to practice the features covered during the session. We will also send you PDF reference material and/or quick reference guides with each session prior to the start of the session.

Will I receive a certificate? Yes, you will receive a Keys Training® certificate of completion.

When and how do I pay? At the time of booking you will receive an invoice to pay. This needs to be paid prior to the start of the session either by card or by bank transfer.

What if I feel ill and cannot attend? No issue, all we ask if you are feeling unwell is that you try to get someone to let us know with as much time as possible so that the trainer is made aware. We will then offer you an alternative session.

Is Remote Training suitable for Consultancy and advice? Yes, this is a perfect way to have training/consultancy with some of the top trainers in the UK.

Can I use this form of Remote Learning for tailored courses just for my team? Yes, this is a perfect way of training and collaborating with your team and works well with roll out training.
