Classroom and Live Online Training

***Classroom Courses Postponed for Courses 5th Nov – 2nd Dec 2020***
Please contact us for more details and to re-arrange dates

We are pleased to report that our classroom courses are now once again up and running, subject to any future Government restrictions, with all the recommended safety measures and more in place. Although we brought our live online modules in early during the COVID-19 crisis we are pleased to say that, due to their popularity, we will be keeping them on the schedule for the foreseeable future.


Guidance for Attending Classroom Courses in Cambridge During the Pandemic

In interpreting the current guidance we are seeking to protect our delegates and our staff. We have to reserve the right to change this guidance as the situation develops.

For those living or working in England:

With the implementation of Covid local levels on Wednesday the 14th October 2020, we have introduced the following restrictions:

  • You may only attend courses if, at the time of the course, you live or work in a Medium or High Level area. You cannot attend courses if you live or work in a Very High Level area, as anyone living or working in these areas is required not to leave the area except for essential travel.

For those living or working in Wales, Scotland, or Northern Ireland:

  • The situation is dependent on the local restrictions in place where you live and work. We would ask you not to attend a class if you live or work in an area under a local lockdown that requires only essential travel. Please contact us for more clarification if required.

If you are already booked on a course and these restrictions mean you can no longer attend, or you no longer wish to attend because of the pandemic, we will happily move you to the next available course. If you live in a Very High Level area in England, we will move you to the next available course once your area’s level has moved to High or Medium.

If you are still unsure about attending then please feel free to contact us

All of us here at SPT very much hope that you are staying safe and well


Training Data

To help ensure a secure environment, our courses only ever use training data sets that we have created to look and feel realistic. We will never ask you to use or to provide examples of your real data, or place ourselves in a position from which we might access it. Our courses are run using either stand alone or virtual machines, with everything you need being provided for in a secure and straightforward environment. This is true whether you are joining us on one of our live online modules or in person in the classroom.


Live Online Module information

How do they work?

Each session is led by one of our expert i2 trainers from start to finish. The number of delegates on each course is also limited to allow the trainer to give plenty of individual attention.

What will I need?

We want to make the experience as easy as possible. You will need a computer and an internet connection, but we will provide remote software environments with all the required IBM i2 software and training material, ready to go.
