FAQ

Can you customize training for my company?
Each organization and business is different, so pre-packaged training programs don't work for everyone.
Therefore, we offer two types of customizations:
1. industry-specific customization.
2. organization-specific customization. Make sure you ask about it.
How do you deliver your training?
Every organization has its own unique learning environment, and we support all of them:
In-person (at any location designated by you)
vs. Online (via Zoom or Microsoft Teams)
vs. Hybrid Instructor-led vs. self-paced using our learning system vs. hybrid
How many participants can attend the same course at once?
Our professional experience suggests that a cohort of participants should be no more than 20 to ensure an effective learning process. 
When there are more than 20 participants, we offer a teacher assistant (TA).
Do you offer interactive training?
Definitely!
Our approach to learning and evolving is based on experience and hands-on practice.
Who teaches your courses?
Elevation-certified instructors have proven experience and are professionals with proven expertise.
What will the participants leave with?
During each course, we provide takeaways with a summary. Furthermore, Elevation learning system content is available for 6 months after course completion.
