Our approach to live online SketchUp training

We do everything possible to make your experience as close as possible to actually being in the classroom…

  • You can see and hear our trainer and the other delegates.
  • Our trainer and the other delegates can see you (via your webcam) and hear you.
  • We’ll provide your training guide, and make the course files and resources available for you to download.
  • Your training is hands-on: you’ll practice and carry out exercises throughout.
  • If you're learning to use an application and don’t have access to the software, we’ll send you a link to fully-functional trial software that you can download and install.
  • If you need assistance, you can share your screen with our trainer, and pass control to them.
  • You’ll receive an e-certificate confirming successful course completion. 
  • You’re entitled to 30 days’ email support from your trainer.
