Frequently Asked Questions
What training workshops are currently offered online?
The list of online training workshops currently offered, as well as those that are coming soon and in development, can be found on the Training Workshops page of this website.
Check back often, as new workshops will be added on an ongoing basis.
What training workshops will be offered in the future?
Training workshops that are coming soon, usually within a time period of a number of weeks, are listed as coming soon. Those workshops listed as in development are in the preliminary stages of production.
If the website indicates that a training workshop is coming soon, how long will it be before the workshop is available for purchase?
The development time for a workshop varies depending on a number of factors. In some cases, you may see a projected release date, but in most cases that date will not be posted until a new workshop is very close to its completion (usually only a few days in advance) because there are simply too many moving parts to make an accurate prediction.
How do you determine which training workshops will be developed?
A number of factors are used to determine which training workshops will be developed, and many are created in response to client requests.
Can the parameters set for the online workshops be adjusted?
Yes. In most cases, an online workshop can be modified to suit your needs. For example, some companies prefer to require their employees to complete the workshop within a certain period of time, and some companies prefer to increase or decrease the average 80% threshold set for the successful completion of the course. Please click here to fill out the contact form if you are interested in discussing course modifications that would best suit your needs.
Can I suggest that you develop a workshop on a specific topic?

Course Content and Materials
Do I need certain technical skills to participate in a workshop?
These workshops are delivered through Digital Chalk, which is a user-friendly online learning platform. The elements of each workshop require minimal technical skills to navigate.
What is the format for each workshop?
The format may vary depending on which workshop you select. Each workshop will include one or more narrated slide presentations, as well as knowledge checks throughout and at the conclusion of the program. Participants who successfully complete the course and the knowledge checks will receive a certificate of completion.
What is the running time for each workshop?
