How it Works

After registering, your instructor will send you an email with detailed instructions about getting setup with Zoom Conference and invite you to the WhatsApp or Slack group for your cohort of students.


The same email will contain digital downloads of the course handbook and any worksheets, spreadsheets, planning tools, and other materials.


On Day 1 of your course please be prepared to login to the eLearning session via Zoom 15 minutes prior to the start of the session.


At the specified start time our instructor will host the eLearning session covering topics relevant to that week’s hands-on assignments. These sessions are just like the lectures, discussions, and group assignments you may have experienced at other trainings – just remote.


You will work on the hands-on activities at our own facility. Because we are working remotely, it’s vital that you keep good notes and document your experiences.


Reconvene for the next eLearning session at the appointed time. We will review the hands-on activities, analyze the results as a group, and cover new materials in preparation for the next hands-on assignments.


During the course take advantage of one on one coaching sessions with your instructor.


When you complete the course you will receive a certificate of completion, an invitation to join the Boot Coffee Campus Alumni page on Facebook, and are eligible for discounts on future and Boot Coffee Campus courses.
