Web cameras and Microphones
In order to recreate our live training experience, attendees are required to show their webcam and keep their microphone un-muted throughout the duration of the course. The instructor may request webcams to be disabled if they are negatively impacting the internet bandwidth and causing course disruptions.
Noise & Interruptions
Please ensure you are attending the online course in a quiet location without background noise, as it will interrupt the course for the other attendees. Please place your phones on vibrate, close other applications on your computer that may make noise. To avoid course interruption, the instructor may elect to mute an individual attendee or mute-all attendees. Continued disruptions may result in the attendee being removed from the online session.
Attendees may be dismissed without refund for causing distraction, interruptions or not following course requirements. For example: if determined competitor, disorderly behavior, webcam not enabled or having disruptive background noise.
Online training will be conducted simultaneously during the public course. You will have 5 minute breaks and lunch breaks, as applicable. Meals are not provided for simulcast training. You will be able to ask the instructor questions via chat or by speaking into your phone or microphone. You will required show your webcam throughout the duration of the course.
