Remote training courses (live Instructor-led online) are taught by an instructor on a one-to-one basis or with a small number of participants (typically 4 to 8 trainees).
- The participants and the trainer interact with each other using virtual desktops and video calls (VOIP such as Skype)
- Most courses are exactly the same as their classroom equivalent, including the course duration, curriculum and student materials.
- With these sessions, each participant has their own remote desktop where they can perform labs and exercises with the oversight of the trainer.
- This is often a more efficient way of teaching than a traditional classroom setting.
