How do I prepare for the on-site, private training?

The ideal training environment

In our experience, courses work best with a quiet training room, preferably with Internet-connected PCs or Macs for each attendee and a data projector for the instructor’s laptop (PC or Mac) which will also need to be connected easily and quickly to the Internet (wired or wireless) and to an accessible, working power supply!

If you don't have an on-site training room, a board room type office works well with attendees bringing Internet connected laptops with them or previously set-up desktop PCs or Macs. We would recommend a minimum of one PC or Mac between two attendees.

A whiteboard or flip chart is always a good idea too.

Connecting the Instructor's Laptop

  1. It is preferable for the Instructor's Mac or PC Laptop to be able to connect quickly and easily to a wireless or wired network with unrestricted Internet access, a bright hi-resolution (1024x768) projector (projecting a large, well focused image onto a clean back-drop) and a working power supply!
  2. If network security restrictions prohibit the instructor's laptop from connecting to the Internet, then a PC connected to the Internet must be supplied. The instructor will be required to display PowerPoint slides on the PC so a way of transferring the slides onto the computer must be provided and a PowerPoint slide viewer application or PowerPoint itself must also be loaded. The PC must be loaded with the latest versions of Internet Explorer, Chrome and Firefox and each browser must have JavaScript enabled. The PC or Mac should be tested for display and security issues by logging into Google Analytics before the training. To do this log-in to google.com/analytics using username:gatesting@ivantage.co.uk and password:gatest123. Click on one of the accounts and, if you see the graphs displaying, no more action is required. If there is still a display problem, then please contact support@ivantage.co.uk.

For video conferencing attendees

In our experience, professional video conferencing facilities work best where the instructor's slides and browser, along with their visual and an audio presentation can be displayed to all locations. In addition, attendees should be able to openly interact with other attendees and the instructor.

Suggested timings

Timings are very flexible to fit around your people and the organisation, but as a guideline 9:30 is a good time to start and 17:00 to finish with two 15min breaks and an hour for lunch - this keeps all minds fresh! Your instructor will to arrive for 9:00 to set-up your projector, Internet connection and laptop power. We leave lunch arrangements to you and we are happy to fit-in with whatever you decide. Don’t feel you have to entertain the trainers, as they are more than happy to be left to their own devices. We would advise, though, against a working lunch, as a break is important, more for the attendees than the instructor!

Confidentially

A mutual NDA can be provided for your and our protection.

Prerequisites for Google Analytics Training

  1. For Google Analytics training, attendees will require on-line administration access to an active (recording some data) Google Analytics account and, if you are using Google Adwords, administrative access to a Google Adwords account for the duration of the training.
  2. If attendees would like actual Google Analytics data to be used in some of the training sessions then access will need to be granted to the trainer. To do this add matt.trimmer@ivantage.co.uk (found top right of the Google Analytics User Manager) as an account Administrator to all relevant Google Analytics Accounts your organisation will use for training.
  3. All attendees’ PCs and Macs should have the latest version of a Industry leading browser and must have JavaScript enabled. All PCs and Macs should be tested for display and security issues by logging into Google Analytics before the day of the training. To do this log-in to google.com/analytics using username:gatesting@ivantage.co.uk and password:gatest123. Click on one of the accounts and, if you see the graphs displaying, no more action is required. If there is still a display problem, then please contact support@ivantage.co.uk.
  4. For Google Analytics 301 - Day 3, in addition to the latest version of Microsoft Internet Explorer, the latest versions of Firefox and Chrome should be installed on all PCs and Macs (or at least, be installable when downloaded) with JavaScript enabled.
