Frequenty Asked Questions
If you are attending class at one of Certstaffix® Training classrooms, please check out the most frequent questions from students:
- What if I have a question?
You simply voice your question. Speaker phones and a phone bridge
connect the class attendees with the instructor. You can interact with the instructor, students attending from other locations and participate in class discussions.
- How many students are in a class?
We limit most classes to 10 students total. This help keep you class small to allow for lots of personal attention from your instructor.
- What happens if I get stuck during a
Just ask for help. The instructor is
able to see your computer screen and can take over control of it to provide you with individualized attention and help.
- Will there be other students in the room with me?
Each Certstaffix® Training location has a set number of classrooms. Rooms typically hold 1-4 students. Students in different classes will not be put in the same classroom. If no one else registers for the exact same course title, date and location as you, then you will be the only student in that classroom.
- Will someone be at the site?
Local staff will greet you and direct you to your classroom. From that point on your instructor takes over.
- What if I can't communicate with the instructor?
Our phone supportline is posted in each classroom. Just like our instructor, our staff can take over control of a student's computer to provide direct assistance.
- Do I need to bring anything with me to class?
Our classrooms are outfitted with computers, hands-free phone and internet access you'll be using for class and the local receptionist will give you your training materials. If you want to take notes during training then you may want to bring pen and paper, or go green by using your own laptop.
- Can I attend class from my home or office?
To do so you will need at minimum a computer with a high-speed internet, speaker/hands-free phone with unlimited long-distance and no firewall. We provide you access to any needed software and lab environments during class. We will ship you any courseware about 1 week prior to your class start.
- Will I need to install software?
No. We provide access to a web hosted lab environment during class that contains all the software you need for class. If you attend from home or your office, you will need a computer with high speed internet, speakers and a microphone for the voice over IP class audio.
- Are there class materials?
Most classes include course manuals. Any manual provided is yours to keep when you complete the class. Training materials are shipped directly to you about 1 week prior to class start. You should receive your materials at the address designated on the registration form a couple of days before class.
- Are there breaks during class?
Yes. There’s typically one short break in the morning and one in the afternoon to allow students to use restrooms, get a drink and so on. There is also a lunch break of 30-60 minutes. The duration for all breaks depends upon how well the class is progressing through the material.
- Is there a dress code?
Business casual dress code.
- Do you provide lunch?
No, but you're welcome to bring food with you or visit nearby dining options.
- What about parking or mass transit?
If you are attending a remote instructor-led class at a Certstaffix® Training classroom, we generally have picked suburban locations that include free parking. You can contact us to find out for a specific location what parking options are available.
- Will I receive a certificate after the class?
Yes. Once your full attendance for the class has been confirmed, a certificate of completion will be sent to you via email (.pdf format).
- Which classes are offered where?
We offer all of our classes remote instructor-led from you home or office. For classroom locations where you can attend our courses, they are indicated on our category schedules pages here by city name - www.certstaff.com/classes/. Any schedule list where a city name is listed next to the class title indicated you can attend this class in person in that city. Just click the city name to see the exact training classroom address.
- When do you hold classes?
Classes are held WEEKDAYS (excluding major holidays). Remote instructor-led classes run from:
10:00 am - 5:00 pm (Eastern Time)

7:00 am - 2:00 pm (Pacific Time)
All of our classes are listed with Eastern Time Zone times, so please adjust to your time zone when planning your attendance.
- How are your classes different
from a web seminar?
In a web seminar, you typically just listen and watch an
instructor presentation. You have no hands-on component. In many web seminars,
you can't ask questions except for typing chat messages.
In our remote instructor-led classes you
have hands-on access to the software you are learning and can ask questions freely and participate in class discussions via hands-free phone. You'll also be able to hear questions posed by other students regardless
of their location.
