Tips for Online Training Success

  • Consider the below tips to be successful when using online training.
  • Have a plan/goal in mind.
  • Dedicate/block off time on your calendar. (At work, check with your supervisor if approved as professional development.)
  • Eliminate distractions – Get away from your “office space” if permitted. Use a laptop in a quiet room (get away - just as if you are going to a face-face training session).
  • Use headphones!
  • Hang a “Training in Progress/Do Not Disturb” sign.
