Dates (Melbourne)

We currently don’t have any dates scheduled. Have you considered our online class?

Here are some of the benefits of our online class;

  • No carbon footprint from travelling
  • You still get a live facilitated session with John (our Captivate trainer) teaching the class.
  • You can participate from the comfort of anywhere you like, except the beach, we wouldn’t want you to get sand in your laptop.
  • We space the normal 2 days across a number of sessions to maintain engagement in an online webinar environment
  • We record very virtual session so you have life-time access to the specific course sessions you attended.
  • We still provide the same post course support as you would get with the face-to-face offering
  • We can quickly tailor the training to suit your experience and objectives
  • Follow up webinars are a piece of cake.
  • So far in 2019, we’ve trained a dozen students via virtual classroom from a wide range of industries and locations, from Melbourne to Brisbane, and in between.
  • There is one disadvantage;
    • We won’t be supplying refreshments or mints (sorry) but we could send some in the post if you really wanted us to!

We are happy to consider interstate travel (from Sydney) for special requests, and will factor in carbon offsetting costs into the quotes.
