Just because you train and assess online does not mean you need to be available 24/7!


There are definite benefits to flexible working arrangements being an online trainer and assessor, however, like anything, there is also a downside. It can come with a set of demands extraordinary outside of the ‘usual’ face-to-face training environment.


Unfortunately, events over the past year or so have meant many trainers and assessors haven’t had a choice, as remote working, at least some of the time, has become the norm. This has seen kitchen benches, lounge rooms and other spare corners of the house being substituted for the office environment, and this has seen many trainers and assessors working more hours in front of a screen.


So as we try to settle into this ‘new normal’, trainers and assessors need to consider how to manage themselves and their time when training and assessing online, while taking advantage of the positives that working online provides.

Join this session with experienced online trainer, assessor and facilitator Allison Miller, to hear about ways to:

  • Draw healthy boundaries for working online

  • Set up the right systems for working online

  • Work smarter through effective online training and assessing strategies (and how to encourage your learners to do the same!)

  • Maximise the pros and manage the cons of training and assessing online


Participants will receive the handy resource booklet Tips for training and assessing online.


This session is about making explicit - from an online trainer/assessor with years of experience - the time-saving tips and working efficiencies that might not otherwise be apparent for people thrust into or who are new to online working arrangements.
