Zoom Co-Pilot Flight School

 

Have you ever wondered how one mere mortal can be expected to present, answer chat, and solve the dreaded “my headset is not working” question all at the same time? We have an answer: DON’T, and don’t make your colleagues try. Instead sign-up for Zoom Co-Pilot Flight School. Here you will learn and practice all the skills to become the very best Zoom Co-Pilot you can be.

Each Flight Track will be 3 one-hour sessions done over the course of three weeks. We ask that you commit to attending every session before you sign-up for a track. If you are not available for a session, please sign-up for a different track and check back often as we anticipate adding tracks on a regular basis. If you click on the registration link and the link does not work registration for this track is full.

Over the course of your track you will learn:
