FAQs

Questions? Check out the frequently asked questions below.

Do I have to prepare anything before attending the course?

For in-person training, do bring along a laptop. You also have the option to loan a laptop from us for the duration of the course. You may also want to bring along a jacket in case the room gets cold.

For online classes, do ensure you have a functional laptop and have Zoom installed prior to class. For more details, you may read the Online-based Classroom Learner Guide.

What is Google Tag Manager and why is it important?

Google Tag Manager is a user-friendly tagging system made for businesses of all sizes to manage analytics and marketing tags (for tracking and measuring the performance of marketing campaigns) more efficiently.

Google Tag Manager is a useful tool to streamline the process of deploying tracking codes. All your tags are managed in one place and best of all, it’s free.

Do I have to be a developer to use Google Tag Manager?

To maximise the benefits of Google Tag Manager, some knowledge of Javascript, CSS and basic HTML will be useful. However, for this course, no pre-requisites other than basic computer knowledge is required to understand the fundamental concepts and implement Google Tag Manager tracking.

Does Google Tag Manager work only with Google Products?

No, Google Tag Manager can be used to deploy a variety of analytics or advertising tags. During this course, we will use Google Tag Manager to deploy Facebook pixels in addition to Google Analytics.

Are there any funding or government subsidies for this course?

You may be eligible for up to 70% SkillsFuture subsidies. If you wish to check your funding eligibility, you may complete step 1 of the course registration form to check your nett course fees payable after all available subsidies. For more information on all available course funding/grants/subsidies, you may check out this FAQ page.

If I have any questions after the course, can I consult the trainer?

Yes, you may contact your trainer after the course. There are other post-training support channels such as the Equinet Academy Insider Community where you may network with like-minded individuals and industry experts and live Ask Me Anything sessions where you may seek advice from a subject matter expert.

What is the difference between online classroom and in-person classroom learning modes?

Typically, in a traditional classroom, classes are conducted with 1 trainer to 20 – 24 learners in a cluster or classroom seating format. Group discussions, group presentations, lectures, peer-to-peer coaching are all conducted face-to-face (in-person).

In an online-based classroom, lessons will be delivered via a video conferencing software, Zoom. Lectures will be conducted via screensharing, while group discussions and group brainstorming will be conducted via “breakout” rooms (individual virtual rooms) to split up discussions into smaller groups. Both learning modes essentially offer the same course content and learning outcomes.

Read the Online-based Classroom Learner Guide for a more detailed comparison on both formats.

Can't I learn everything over the internet?

Our courses offer a very hands on approach so that you will be able to apply what you learn immediately. Moreover, our trainers are industry practitioners who will be able to answer your questions and offer expert advice in real time.

We also offer post-training support which includes 2-hour Ask Me Anything sessions with an industry expert for up to 3 years, an online refresher seat within 3 years post-training, access to an insider community, and 3-year access to up-to-date courseware via the learning management system.

Will there be video recordings of the session made available for reference after class?

Unfortunately, we are unable to provide video recordings of the class due to PDPA regulations (Personal Data Protection Act). However, all courseware and e-learning videos are accessible online via the learning management system for 3 years. You may also sign up for a complimentary online refresher course for up to 3 years post-training.

Are these short courses sufficient to achieve desirable learning outcomes?

Equinet Academy’s courses are meticulously designed to provide bite-sized yet comprehensive information that are highly relevant to the industry’s needs. Through a combination of individual project work, peer-to-peer interaction, and practice and feedback, trainees can immediately apply the concepts learnt in class to their real world projects.

If you feel that you have not met the learning objectives at the end of the course, you are always welcomed to re-sit the course online without any additional cost. You will also have full access to the courseware online which you may review during and after the course, and post-training support to address any challenges you may face along your learning journey through consultation with subject matter experts.

I'm still unsure whether this course can help me meet my objectives.

If you are still unsure whether this course is suitable for you, please leave your contact details here.
