When adapting the delivery of our Agile courses into a live online training format – our sole aim was to ensure that attendees could continue to enjoy the same interactive and engaging experience that they would expect from our face-to-face training. Our bespoke online training platform, built by one of our very own trainers, enables us to do just that.
Utilising Training from the Back of the Room techniques, attendees work as part of small teams within virtual breakout rooms, and enjoy live collaboration throughout various training exercises.
Whether it’s creating Sprint Backlogs and Burndown Charts on our Scrum courses, or undertaking PI Planning for SAFe, attendees can undertake all of the same practical exercises online, that they would normally undertake in a face to face class.
This enables us to replicate the team-working aspects of our training, and ensures that delegates can enjoy the same highly engaging and interactive experience – whilst attending from their home, place of work or any other remote location.
“The online delivery of this course was about as close to real life classroom delivery as I’ve experienced. Materials and tools were good quality, clear and concise. The trainer was extremely knowledgeable giving lots of real world examples. It was a dynamic course which I found hugely valuable and enjoyable.”

“Virtual courses are here to stay. Excellent use of technology meant true collaboration and learning were possible facilitated by course leaders who knew their topics from many years of real world experience.”

Live Online Training – FAQs
How are Live Online Training courses delivered?
Each of our online training courses are underpinned by interactive group activities that utilise Training from the Back of the Room techniques. Delivered via Zoom, alongside dedicated online collaboration tools – attendees will work as part of small teams within virtual breakout rooms, and enjoy live collaboration on the very same training exercises that would be undertaken within a face-to-face training environment.
Our highly experienced and knowledgeable Agile trainers will guide attendees through the course content, while the range of interactive and engaging training exercises empower them to learn – by doing.
What will I need to attend Live Online Training?
Attending an online course is simple – all you’ll need is a PC / Laptop with audio, video and microphone functionality, and of course a fast and secure internet connection. We’ve also included some further recommendations below to ensure that you get the best from your online training experience:
- Headphones, a headset or a quiet room from which to attend the course (ideally avoiding a common room in the house)
- Audio with the ability to speak to and hear each other in the class over Zoom
- A front-facing camera so that everyone in the class can see you.
- We recommend your bandwidth should be able to support video conference calls with video enabled and without experiencing audio or video breaking up.
- A PDF reader so you can view course workbook.
- Pen and notepad
Please note that Zoom will be used throughout the delivery of the Live Online Training course – therefore please do check that you have access to Zoom before your course starts since its use is critical to the delivery of the course.
We understand that some companies may not allow the download of the Zoom app, and if not, you may need to connect to Zoom via your browser. Please also be aware that Internet Explorer (which has not been supported by Microsoft since 2016) does not enable Zoom to perform correctly, therefore please ensure to use Google Chrome or Mircrosoft Edge when joining the course.
Will I gain the same course certification via Live Online Training?
Yes, many of the certifying bodies (including the Scrum Alliance, and the Scaled Agile Framework) have now enabled remote training.
Therefore, if you are attending a certified online course (ie Certified ScrumMaster, Certified SAFe Agilist: Leading SAFe 5.0) then you will obtain the same certification as the respective in-person training. Please note that where applicable, delegates will still need to successfully pass the same post-course examination to gain the relevant certification.
Who are Live Online Training courses taught by?
The very same, highly experienced, trainers that deliver our in-person courses. Each trainer has 10-20 years of Agile experience, having spent many years helping others introduce, develop and embed Agile practices, and process improvements, within their organisations.
Our trainers have substantial knowledge about what works in the real world and how to overcome specific challenges.
