World Leading Technical Education Delivered Sustainably

Live Instructor-led Remote Attendance

Live and Fully Interactive Classroom Learning Remotely

Since 2017, we have been delivering programs via live Instructor-led Remote Attendance classes, driven by the desire to operate in a more sustainable and environmentally sensitive way. As early adopters of this method of delivery, we were tried and tested and completely ready when the world was forced to go fully digital during the global pandemic. The allows learners to feel 100% confident that their learning experience will be professional, effective and of the highest quality.

The CNet Instructor-led remote attendance learning experience is live and fully interactive with both the Instructor and fellow attendees. Learners can join the same virtual classroom from wherever they are in the world. We have built the capacity to deliver from multiple Smart Rooms, allowing us to deliver different programs simultaneously in different time zones across the globe. We are still limiting the class sizes per Smart Room to preserve the high levels of personal interaction and quality of teaching that CNet customers enjoy.

Remodelled Program Content

Delivery of each program has been remodelled to further enrich the remote learning experience, with attention to detail and expert Instructors who ensure they deliver the absolute best learning experience for all:

  • For cable installation programs, practical demonstrations have been enhanced by exploiting on-board capabilities of the equipment being demonstrated. Multiple cameras are also utilised to ensure both the Instructor and activity are clearly visible on learner’s screens, with optimal ‘close up’ capability to provide clear visibility of the smallest items such as the splice bridge on the fusion splicers and even the optical fibre itself
  • For technician level programs, the focus is now on functional online tools that can be used to evidence situational analysis, problem solving and decision making. The use of virtual break-out rooms provides the opportunity for learners to undertake project meetings that would otherwise have to be achieved in a classroom environment
  • For design level programs, where previously design drawings were undertaken manually, they are now completed in digital format using innovative methods on standard software applications. Using these methods enables learners to produce high quality plans and elevations, that are accurately scaled, and provide a true reflection of complex data centre or enterprise network designs
  • Use of virtual break-out rooms feature in all programs where group discussions, simulated meetings and collaboration are required. This provides the opportunity for smaller groups to engage, share ideas and determine collective outcomes

For those who haven't experienced Remote Attendance we have created a Remote Attendance demonstration and urge our customers to request a personal demo or ask to view the demo video we have created, this will highlight the high quality learning experience you will gain when you attend our remote classes.

We have a full schedule of program dates in time zones across the world and we are able to deliver fifteen live classes simultaneously. So, it’s business as usual for CNet, we can deliver our almost our entire schedule by way of Remote Attendance utilising our Smart Rooms.
