We have carefully adapted our courses to a virtual environment, to ensure you can keep developing your AI skills remotely through a seamless online training experience.

For the time being, all of our open courses will be available online, with options for both companies and individuals. If you wish to do a training for a group of people, please get in touch with us by email or by submitting the form below, and we will gladly provide you with a virtual training set up that matches the needs of your company.

technology

We deliver our Virtual Training Method in the best software that is accessible in your organization, to facilitate high quality interactive virtual trainings and a flexible work environment. Participants can access their online course through a link provided by us.

2 interaction
2. Interacting with trainers
and participants

We ensure to deliver a virtual training experience which matches one you would receive in a physical classroom. This means each participant receives the same level of attention and coaching as always before. In the virtual classroom discussions are held both with the whole group as well as in breakout sessions with smaller groups. One-to-one sessions between participant and trainer are also provided.

3 online assessments
3. Completing online
assessments

An important part of our training courses is practicing with real life data cases, which provide you with a practical understanding of the topic and how to apply the learnings in your own work. We always work with the data sets  through AWS WorkSpaces, and this does not change in the virtual set up. Only difference is that you meet with your subgroup in the Zoom breakout rooms. And just like in an onsite training, you can ask the trainer for advice at any time. Assignments can also be easily uploaded in our online training portal and evaluations are given throughout the course.

4 certification
4. Getting your
certification

Last but certainly not least, at the end of each training course you can take an exam to obtain an official certification. As these exams always are done online, also during onsite training courses, the process stays exactly the same. And after passing your exam, your GAIn® certification will be sent to you per email. Through our partner Acclaim, you can also access digital badges for each course that you complete, to include in your CV or share on social media.
