So, your classroom course has gone virtual, or you’re looking to run a corporate virtual course, but want to know how it will actually work, below is some information on how it will work in practice.

Why has my class gone virtual?

Encase you haven’t seen the news…the government have advised against non-essential travel and to work from home. In addition, with the schools closing on March 20th, many parents will need to stay at home to care for their children. Check out our blog post on the impact of Coronavirus for more information.

What will I need?

All of our virtual courses will run via Adobe Connect, which is free for you to use and is often accepted through firewalls onto computers as Adobe is a widely accepted piece of software. If you work in a company with high security settings, you might need to use your personal PC or mobile phone. Therefore, you will need:

  • A laptop/ PC/ MAC/ iPad/ or Phone, which enables sound
  • Internet – a good internet connection (preferably wired) will ensure you don’t miss anything!
  • Headphones – you may wish to use a headset/ headphones to listen, but you won’t be asked to connect via webcam, so feel free to sit in your pjs!
  • A pen and paper, to write practice questions
  • Your attention!

How will I access Adobe Connect?

Your course tutor will send you a link to the Abode Connect session – you can go into this virtual room any time to check it works. We’ve also created a YouTube video on how to setup Adobe Connect – its worth a watch before your planned session.

Who will teach the session?

You will be told who your tutor is prior to the session, you can find out more about them by e-mailing us. All of our trainers are highly experienced in virtual delivery and will make sure you get online and get engaged as quickly as possible.

How long will the session be?

The PMQ will run as a 4-day course, with 16 x 1-hour webinars spread across the days. The webinars will be highly interactive, using PowerPoint slides, quizzes and discussion boards to engage you throughout. But don’t worry, you won’t be asked to sit at a desk for the whole day – there will be lots of breaks in which you will be asked to go away and complete some activities, like you would in a classroom, including feedback from the tutor in the next session. Adobe Connect allows you to type questions as a group, or email them privately to the tutor, so you will be able to see what thoughts other delegates have throughout the sessions.

The exam is currently not available to sit online however the APM are working on a solution. In the meantime, we will defer your exam until travel restrictions are lifted and you will attend a 1 day examination preparation session followed by the three hour exam. When online exams are released, this will be run on day 5 of your virtual course, with examination preparation via webinar in the morning.

Fear not! Adobe allows us to record sessions which will be sent to you afterwards – these obviously won’t give you the opportunity to ask questions but do mean you won’t miss anything if your food box arrives/ work phone call comes in.
