The session is run with the use of an online communication platform that helps delivering the ultimate real-time training experience by enabling the trainer and trainee to share files and screens, chat during the session, to use whiteboards and breakout rooms and to measure the engagement level of the trainee thus helping to keep the levels of motivation always high.


In case of face-to-face session the modules above make for a 1 or 2 full training days, depending on the needs.
