The online version of this course will be delivered in 10 half day sessions and will cover exactly the same content as the classroom version. The training will be delivered using the online training platform called ReadyTech, where you'll be able to see, hear and interact with the trainer and other trainees throughout the sessions.
Through ReadyTech, you will connect to, and control, a virtual machine, allowing you to access our software, so you do not need to have it installed on your local machine. This also enables our trainers to see your screens to assist you with any queries during the course on a 1-on-1 basis. This means that you don't need to worry about hardware specifications and software requirements, as everything you need will already be installed. You will need:
- A PC / Laptop (strongly recommended that you have two screens)
- Mouse and Keyboard
- Headset with mic
- Webcam (useful but optional)
- Access to the internet, with a strong, reliable connection (Advisable that you are NOT connected to a VPN or Proxy Server during the course)
- You MUST use a fully updated version of Google Chrome or Firefox to access ReadyTech
You can check that your IT setup is suitable for use with ReadyTech by running their System Pre-Check, available here.
Finally, you will use our online training licenses for the duration of the course, so you don’t need to use your own. To do this, you will need a Trimble ID online account. You may already have one, but we will check this before your course and send you the appropriate instructions if you need to create one.
