T & C:

  • If you do not reside in India then please select the FOREIGN category for registration.Training session will be conducted every day for 2 hours for the time which you choose.
  • The training sessions will be conducted as chat as well as screen share with LIVE voice. You can save the session for reference and use it later for reference.
  • Only Windows OS are required. If your computer has any other OS then let us know.
  • Once you register we will send you Welcome email 2 days prior to the workshop. This email will have all details of files, software as well as Messenger ID on which you have to send request.
  • Your request will be accepted 5 minutes prior to the start of the training. So do not panic if you have sent the request and it is not accepted. It will be accepted 5 minutes prior to your session.
  • If there is power cut/power loss/any other technical difficulty and you loose time then we will compensate that time in the next session. Example, if you have lost 30 minutes then your next session will be of 2:30 minutes instead of 2:00 hours.
  • If you do not turn up for training session on any day then you will be sent an email about the things which would be covered on that day. Next day the next thing will be covered.
  • If you have any urgent work then you can shift that and make sure to be online at your time.
    The training certificate will be given on successful completion of the tasks.
  • No refund will be made in any case.
