Total attendance and participation are mandatory. The trainer will formally assess delegates to meet the certification criteria throughout the course. Upon successful completion, you will receive the ICAgile ICP-ACC certification.

Is online training an excellent way to learn?

Yes, online training can be an excellent way to learn, especially when designed thoughtfully and led by experienced facilitators.

Utilising live video and online collaboration tools, we replicate the interactive nature of our face-to-face training within a virtual environment. Individuals can undertake this training from their home or any other remote location. Our facilitators are specifically trained in virtual instruction, ensuring they understand the unique dynamics of online learning and know how to keep participants engaged through a variety of techniques.

Is there an exam?
