Facilitated Online Workshops
These workshops are entirely online and usually have a start and end date and are led by experts in the field. Training anytime, anywhere you have access to a computer with a web browser. This is referred to as asynchronous.
Self-Paced Online Workshops
These online workshops allow you to learn at your own pace while achieving training credit.
All workshops can be customized and offered for intact groups sponsored by an employer. These workshops may include online components as well as face-to-face facilitation (hybrid workshop).
These sessions last anywhere from 1-2 hours and are usually synchronous (requires you be online at a certain time).

You will have the actual time requirements for each workshop in advance. You can anticipate that you will have time requirements but not every day as these workshops have been developed by working professionals for working professionals.

Online courses use technology (you will need access to a computer and know basic computer skills) for learning and communication. If you are comfortable with up and down loading your assignments, reading online, and are motivated to learn – online learning is perfect for you.
- How much time should I plan for each workshop?
Workshops are content driven and we make every effort to advise you in advance what the time commitment will be, however, this is different for each person.

Webinar’s will typically be 1 to 2 hours and the self-paced workshops are dependent on your ability to complete the program and the learning outcomes.

Online workshops, seminars and trainings have learning outcomes as do the traditional face to face workshops, seminars and trainings. We have been in the training business for twenty years.
