The Live Online seminar is not a pre-recorded video. The seminar is designed to closely resemble an on-location seminar. That means that the students will have 3 primary views available on their computer screen.
They are views of:
Additionally, as with on-location seminars, students can raise their physical hand to ask a question. The instructor calls on the student and all in attendance can hear the question and the answer. With larger seminars, the student has the option to raise a virtual hand - a hand icon - all can see the virtual hand raised.
No different. A Live Online seminar is a great medium to use these same tools. Our seminar studio is outfitted with high definition cameras used to display live demonstrations using instruments and props. Screen sharing vibration software puts front and center the vibration plots. Screen zoom capabilities along with screen drawing tools leave no doubt about the main points being discussed.
A courtesy seat is limited access to the seminar for a non-student. Supervisors have expressed interest in a courtesy seat. A courtesy seat can be used for short periods each day.
Yes. As with any on-location seminar, Technical Associates will mail you all the materials needed including a textbook.
Pocket handbooks can be purchased during the seminar sign-up process in the on-line store.
The seminars consist of four 7-hour days with a 10-minute break every hour. Lunch is 1 hour. However, at the start of the seminar, your instructor will give you the option of a 45-minute lunch.
The date and time of the examination are agreed upon by the student or the student rep, the proctor, and Technical Associates. For acceptable proctoring personnel or agencies of public seminars, contact Sarah Barrick at 704-333-9011. For private seminar proctoring contact David Berry at 704-333-9011.
Yes, the obvious benefits are health and safety-related during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Other benefits include:
It is true that a one-to-one answer on a specific analyzer has some advantages when the instructor is sitting next to you. However, even with on-location seminars, this is now a challenge due to social distancing. The short answer is yes. Instructors can answer specific questions about analyzers if he/she knows the answer.
Entry Level seminars were developed with hands-on assignments using instruments. The assignments will cause you to find the menus matching the subject being taught. When the assignments are given, Live Online seminars will play each step on a “loop” for each of four instruments:
Follow the steps to find the needed menu. When special questions are posed, document cameras are used to display the instrument screen for the answer. Larger seminars can limit the time spent on specific instruments.
What can I expect during a Live Online seminar?
At on-location seminars, the instructor sometimes uses tools such as vibration software, vibration instruments, and sometimes animations to teach. How does this work with Live Online Seminars?
What is a courtesy seat?
Do I receive a textbook?
Do I receive a Pocket handbook?
How are breaks/lunches handled during Live Online seminars?
Can I take the certification exam right after completing the seminar?
Are there benefits to the Live Online seminars over the in-person seminar?
I know that some of the seminars include hands-on work with different data collectors, but since it is online, will there be help for me with my particular data collector? Will the instructor help me if I have a specific question on my data collector?
