Virtual Instructor-Led Training (VILT)

VILT Courses 2020

We hope you all are safe during the COVID 19 pandemic outbreak. In the current emergency circumstances, we are considering various means and methods to mitigate risk and ensure Business and Training continuity.

As an initiative to help our students here in Trinidad and The Caribbean, we have decided to activate our Virtual Instructor-Led Training (VILT).

Our Autodesk Certified Lecturers at Central Tech are qualified Architects, Engineers, Surveyors and Designers working and training on the software on a regular basis, technical editing, training, and consulting on projects.

Central Tech is the leaders of AutoCAD and Autodesk Software Training in the region.

Please feel free to contact us if any other information is required.

Thanking You

Stay Safe .....

 

Live, Virtual Instructor-Led Training (VILT).

Thanks to our Virtual Instructor-Led Training (VILT) Remote Classroom Instruction technology, our live, instructor-led classes are fully interactive.

Our instructors can see all the work you're doing on the computer and can take control of a student's computer to provide direct assistance. You'll use the software and do hands-on exercises throughout the class.

Students can speak directly to the instructor at any moment during class, you all also can ask questions and start discussions via Zoom or WhatsApp. You'll also be able to hear the other class attendees even though they're at various locations as we find Q&As are typically helpful for everyone's learning.

Class & Delivery Format FAQS

  • During the class will I be able to see the instructor?

In our VILT classroom, you can see the instructors and view the instructor's presentation.

All instructors use a webcam during introductions and briefly following breaks to “put a face to the voice.” The webcam is not running throughout the course. You will also be able to see the instructor’s computer as they're typically doing the class exercises along with you to help you follow better, plus you'll be able to view any presentation components including work done on the blackboard.

  • What if I have a question?

You simply voice your question via your computer Audio or WhatsApp bridge with the instructor. You can ask questions, ask for help, participate in any class discussions all just by speaking via Zoom.

How many students are in a class?

We are licensed for 12 Seats but most classes have a maximum of 4 to 6 Students. Though the demand for our classes often exceeds that, we keep enrollments small to ensure for personalized attention from our instructor.
