Training FAQs

The following FAQs will help you answer your questions about Roman’s training courses:

Training

Roman’s online training is live, interactive, friendly, and engaging. Think of it as an instructor-led remote workshop with the appropriate mixture of lectures, group and individual exercises, and Q&As. The training contents are developed and exclusively used by Roman, and he teaches all classes himself. Roman is available before and after each session to answer any specific questions you might have.

Here is what the attendees say:

“The online delivery of the course was excellent. I was concerned that it may not quite give the same interaction with the trainer, but it absolutely did. Roman used the online tools extremely well.” Tom Brian, Product Owner at Petrofac

“Kudos to Roman for delivering a fantastic, engaging, and interactive online training course.” Nhung Nguyen, Product Manager at Eurail & Interrail

“We got the same out of the online training as if we had we been all in the same room. I really like Roman’s on-the-fly PowerPoint presentation.” Kristina Underwood, Product Owner at HiHi

We limit the number of employees from the same company to four per course in order to ensure a balanced class.

You will need a computer with a webcam and a microphone, preferably a device with a large enough screen, like a laptop or tablet, as well as a stable Internet connection.

Additionally, you will have to be able to use Zoom, Trello, and Google Docs. This includes the following:

  • Join a Zoom meeting, use the chat, mute and unmute yourself, and use reactions.
  • Add cards to a Trello board, edit them, and move them between columns.
  • Access a shared Google doc, save a new version for your own use, edit it, and share it with Roman.

Carrying out the recommended prep work will help you reflect on your understanding of the subjects covered and familiarise yourself with Roman’s teachings. This will make it easier for you to participate in the class, and it will lead to a better learning experience. You can find the prep work on the individual training course pages.

You will receive a pdf document that contains the slides Roman shows in class, screen shots of all the artefacts created in the group exercises, as well as references and links to books and articles. We share the document after the course has taken place, usually on the next day.

We aim to limit the size of our online classes to 20 attendees. This ensures that they are small enough to discuss specific questions and big enough to have a sufficiently diverse group.

When you have joined the waitlist of one of our courses, we will email you as soon as we receive a cancellation, along with everyone else on the list. We then offer the place on a first come, first served basis.

It is unfortunately hard to know if and when someone will cancel. But if you sign up for the next available course, we will rebook you free of charge if we can offer you a place on the fully booked one.

If you would like to join a waitlist, please get in touch and tell us which course you are interested in.
