Our Consultant-Trainer and learners interact in real time via our flexible, online learning platform, resulting in an engaging and real-class environment. This is an ideal alternative to the typical classroom setting for professionals who are unable to travel or who just prefer the convenience of attending a class without having to leave their own personal environment.
  • This class is delivered over five consecutive days, 08:00 to 17:30, Monday to Friday
  • Kelmac Group’s® virtual instructor-led training (VILT) is a live web-based learning experience where the Consultant-Trainer and learners are in separate locations.

This provides for an engaging learning experience in which learners can connect with the content and interact with both the Consultant-Trainer and other learners.
  • The learning objectives and topics covered during the VILT are the same as the corresponding in-person version of the class. That said, to accommodate a virtual setting, the pace at which the VILT is delivered, and the structure of class workshops and exercises, is modified to support engagement in a virtual format. Virtual class participants receive eBooks instead of printed materials.
