BrainStorm's training also takes place in the following venues:
- eLive: Online Training with a live instructor meets with a small group of students via a conference call and a special virtual lab. Absent only the face-to-face interaction, the hands-on course is instructor-led and students can ask questions and have them answered in real time. Classes are available in custom private and public formats.
- Train-The-Trainer Seminars: Available as a public tour or custom private course. These seminars help those who will be teaching end users, such as IT professionals, help desk staff or power users. They learn how to use every aspect of the software and about the methods of master trainers. The trainers can then conduct classes in their organizations professionally and efficiently. Public classes are scheduled according to availability.
