The virtual classroom experience

How virtual classroom works

Our virtual classroom courses allow you to access award-winning classroom training, without leaving your home or office. We use the WebEx video conferencing platform by Cisco. Before you book, check that you meet the WebEx system requirements and run a test meeting to ensure the software is compatible with your firewall settings. If it doesn’t work, try adjusting your settings or contact your IT department about permitting the website.

We also offer a virtual classroom plus option for certain courses. This allows learners to come to the classroom for the first part of their course before attending remotely for the rest of the week. You can get all the benefits of award-winning classroom training from our great training locations, including meeting the learning professional in person at the beginning of the event, and then attend the rest of the course from the comfort of your home or office.

How does QA Virtual Classroom work?

Up to three weeks before the start of the course we will send you Joining Instructions by email.

Enter the "My Virtual Account" portal to update the provided fields, complete self-connection test or if the course has remote learning labs, book a pre-test.

15-30 minutes before the course begins you should launch the software (the launch button is located within the My Virtual Account portal), connect your audio, introduce yourself to the learning professional and familiarise yourself with the interface.

The course will be split into multiple sessions, with short breaks in between so you can stay focused and refreshed.

Throughout the course, the learning professional will use the WebEx platform to share presentations and whiteboard notes to your screen.

You can ask the learning professional a question at any time, either by simply speaking through your microphone or by using the interactive features.

Following the course, you can complete a course evaluation form to give detailed feedback on your experience and help us to make future improvements.
