Class FAQ

What is a teleclass?

A TeleClass is a conference call and is similar to a normal telephone conversation. You and 10-500 other registrants call a regular phone number in the United States (commonly in Orlando or  Las Vegas) at your class time and you are welcomed by the TeleClass Leader.
The TeleClass begins promptly at 2 minutes after the listed start time. A TeleClass is similar to a Business school discussion -- some lecture, some questions, some discussion. If this if your first time taking a TeleClass, you may wonder if and how it works. Testimonies from satisfied members prove that it works. It's highly interactive and the 'flow' works well. You can listen and absorb and/or engage in the discussion. There is always an opportunity to ask questions of the TeleClass Leader during or after the class. Most TeleClass sessions last an hour. Some TeleClasses are single units and meet once and other TeleClasses forms part of a series and meet weekly for 4 or more weeks.
You do not need a computer in order to be in the class. All you need is a phone!

Note: The cost to call one of our bridges is a standard long distance charge. There are no conferencing fees, so you would just pay your long distance carrier whatever your rates are. Most carriers charge a minimal R30-60 an hour for long distance. International members are able to use internet based services to save on telephone costs.

"What is an e-course?"

An e-course is a course that is provided through e-mail. Depending on the type of course that you are taking you may receive a lesson or part of a lesson every day, week or month.

A typical e-course of twenty lessons may arrive in your inbox weekly for twenty weeks, giving you the opportunity to learn when you have time and review any of the lessons at any time.

"What is a Micro Module?

How do I access the bridge line from outside the US?

Our bridge line facility works similar to a regular US phone number. From outside the US, simply add (your countries international dialing code) + 1 to the number.

Examples:
  • The international dialing code from the UK is 00, this add 001 to the bridge line number if you are dialing from the UK.
  • The international dialing code from South Africa is 09, this add 091 to the bridge line number if you are dialing from the South Africa.
Please check with your local service provider should this not work.

Why do you use a US bridge line?

US bridge lines are currently the most effective and affordable world wide. In most cases it is cheaper for international callers to pay the call charge to the US than to use a local bridge line service.

Why could I not get access to a class?

Please check that you called in at the correct time and number as people often seem to get confused between UK time (GMT) and the time zone we use for scheduling our calls is the US (EASTERN TIME - EST). We will point this out in the class reminder that we send out, but you need to take account of day light savings time adjustments.

A link to the recorded version of this class will also be available as soon as we upload the class recording. If there were any specific questions that you were hoping to have answered, please forward these by email and we will ask the Class Leader to reply to you.

What are the time zones that you refer to in the class date and time?

Most of our classes are scheduled for United States Eastern Standard Time. This time zone is normally 5 hours behind GREENWICH MEANTIME (GMT). Please check http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/ for the time difference between you time zone and US Eastern Standard Time (EST)

Where can I find our more about time zones?

We refer our members to http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/ for time zone queries.

When will you be holding the classes with no date and times attached?

There is not time or date information because the class has already taken place.
