"The whole service was 100% good, the equipment and the internet connection were very good; the staff were helpful and friendly, the room had everything we needed."

Computer training suites with desktops or laptops with fast internet
Internet / software training rooms are well suited for training bespoke applications, online access courses, business software and PC-based exams.
Owing to very careful pandemic measures, our maximum room capacities for training events are currently either six trainees plus facilitator (we call this 6 + 1) for our medium sized IT training rooms, or in large sized IT training rooms groups of 8 + 1 maximum. (In non-COVID times our large size rooms being over 8m x 8m could have a maximum capacity of c. 24 +1). For exam-style these increase to 8 + 1 candidates for medium size and 10 + 1 candidates for large size rooms.
"Great space. Thanks - awesome service." Todd Madar, Accruent - training NHS staff
Each laptop or desktop we provide is carefully sanitised in advance and has Microsoft Windows and Office. If you are training your own software we can install the programs needed in advance (30 mins pre-event install support time free with every event - if complex, please ask) . All PCs are connected through the room's dedicated direct-to-internet connection with strong Wi-Fi or ethernet connection. Our experienced and proactive hospitality, cleansing and IT support staff are available before, during and after every hire to ensure your session runs as smoothly as possible.
"Great technical support and we were very well looked after. Had a great time and are looking forward to coming back." Alison Goring, BECTU Vision
