Facilities and equipment needs

You will need to provide:

  • A training room big enough to comfortably hold all attendees
  • A projection screen (a blank wall is fine in most cases)
  • A projector can be provided on the day by us if needed
  • A whiteboard
  • Laptops or workstations for each attendee. Ideally, computers should be equipped with the software attendees are likely to be using. However, most training courses have very simple software needs such as: some sort of text editor (up to the individual but Notepad is fine) and a modern browser (such as Firefox, IE6, IE7, Opera)

If needed, we can provide full training facilities including room and equipment, charged as additional items.
