Our trainers all have academic qualifications in training as well as recommendations from the hundreds of clients we have worked with over the past years.

We re looking forward to working on the Udemy Platform as our on-line experience in creating Moocs, has been extremely positive.

We believe in using a wide variety of learning tools and are always committed to updating and refreshing our on-line courses.

We are starting our Udemy adventure with a brand new course dedicated to supporting students to build their own training company.

Our approach to learning is to gather the very best global content, check on the evidence, add in the magic sauce that creates an inspiring learning experience, test it all out with the most sceptical people you can find and VOILA, you have a new Platform One Virtual Services, course.

We believe in working with the very best and our colleagues include some of the best artists, voice over specialists, film editors and authors in their field; our work is always a joint enterprise and we hope you enjoy the result and keep in touch either through our Udemy e mails or in the discussion board included within the course.
