Technical requirements for online training

To make sure your online training goes smoothly, you will need the following:

  • Computer & internet: you will need regular access to a computer (desktop or laptop) with an internet connection. High-speed wired connection is highly recommended for the optimal learning experience. Many wireless internet connections are also sufficient, though connectivity may fluctuate during the live event. While tablets, smartphones and other mobile devices may allow for some completion of coursework, they are not guaranteed to work in all areas. Please ensure you have a computer available to complete coursework. Before participating, you are required to make necessary preparations like checking your devices, restarting or rebooting, shutting down all other applications like email, etc. to optimize the available internet speed.
  • Mic, webcam & audio: built-in or standalone microphone and webcam (to contribute audio and video) and computer speakers, headphones, or earbuds that are compatible with your computer
