Training Courses

At Concept AV we offer a variety of different courses. We also individualise courses, our goal is to get your staff using the technology effectively and efficiently! As such, all our training is hands-on – we have found that participants remember and will use the tools shown to them if they have a chance to use the tools themselves. The training incorporates making resources that can be used the very next day!

Below are the (standard) courses that we offer, click on the course for more information.

These courses cover the AITSL Professional Standards for Teachers – Module 1.
