What is this course?
Live Online Training
To overcome the challenges currently associated with attending in-person training, agil8 have adapted the delivery of this course into a live online training format with an added focus on how to work using agile with remote team members.
Utilising live video, alongside online collaboration tools, we’re able to replicate the interactive nature of our face-to-face training within a virtual environment. As such, individuals can undertake this training from their home or any other remote location.
Online Delivery Method
The online Agile Coaching (ICP-ACC) course consists of 4 x 4.5 hour sessions. Please note that the start and finish times listed for each of the respective course dates refer to GMT time zone.
