Hybrid sessions

Until further notice all training courses will be given in either online or hybrid format. Both hybrid and online training courses consist of live-streaming sessions with continuous interaction between the teachers and all participants. The difference between these formats is that during hybrid sessions a small number of participants can attend physically in our building in Delft, while others attend simultaneously via live-streaming. The content of the lectures and cases during a hybrid session is equal for both physical and online participants. All participants receive a DOB-box beforehand containing all materials required for both online and physical participation.

The maximum number of participants allowed at our training courses will depend on the Dutch COVID-19 regulations and may vary over time. Allotting the available physical seats will be done based on the ‘first come first served’ principle.

If necessary, or if we deem fit, we can and will switch from hybrid to online format to safeguard the health of our clients and colleagues. This implies that also the physical participants will have to attend via the live-streaming session online. We do not advise to wait for a next session to attend physically, as we cannot guarantee safe participation at our building months or even weeks ahead of time. DOB-Academy reserves the right to switch from a hybrid to an online format up to 24 hours before the start of the training course.

Registration closes a week before the training course in order to send all training materials on time.
