Each Virtual Classroom has a host location in which your trainer will be facilitating from and will co-exist with a face-to-face classroom.

HBA’s Virtual Classroom uses online virtual platforms including, GoToMeeting, Microsoft TEAMS or ZOOM to allow learners to connect to the Trainer and other learners in a virtual setting. Once you enrol you will be sent a confirmation email which has a link for you to download your workbooks and resources, plus a link to the Student forum. A Welcome email will be sent to you by your trainer a few days prior to the course commencing which will have the links that will allow you to login to the Virtual Classroom.

You and the trainer and all the other participants will be able to see and hear each other interact throughout the workshop. You will be shown the features of the virtual classroom and all its benefits and as you progress through the course, you will start using the platform to deliver your own presentations and assessment. Our trainers will provided you with all the help you need to get connected and stay connected.

What will you need to access the Virtual Classroom: To log on to the virtual classroom you don’t need to be a computer Wizz-kid. After enrolment we will provide you step by step instructions which are simple to follow. You will need to have a modern computer that has internet access, it also needs to have a web cam and microphone that the other participants and the trainer can see and hear you on. Whilst laptops a perfect for this purpose, we would recommended that you have at least one other computer monitor/screen connected to your computer, as you will have many documents and web-browser windows open at the same time, it will help you to “virtually” spread out your material.
