Virtual classroom

To meet the needs of our regional and rural clients and make training more accessible to them, we introduced the virtual classroom technology as an added facet to LGP training. 

Zoom, the online platform that we use allows people from any geographic location, the opportunity to remotely attend (fully/partially) the courses which are conducted at our office in Sydney.  This app is very lightweight on Internet and requires only a computing device with audio and video options. The multimedia options facilitate interactions with the trainer, view trainer’s presentations, ask questions, take part in the discussions, and get access to the other training resources. These happen seamlessly in a real-time environment, giving a physical classroom experience.

This online feature is applicable to all our accredited and public courses. For the participants, it helps in reducing the overall training cost and at the same time minimise time spent away from home.

 

Refer to the Training Calendar for all scheduled courses.
