This method of instruction allows participants with various levels of cultural experience to equally develop their cultural skills as they learn together. The training is designed to have a lasting impact as it has participants practice their new skills in a variety of situations unique to their lives so that they can gain a knowledge of how they can apply these skills to their daily lives even after the training has been completed.

Online Trainings

Culture Bump has taken its successful face-to-face training design and methodology to build an all new Online-Training platform that allows groups the same benefits of personal training anywhere in the world.

The Online-training fits seamlessly into the training needs and time constraints of your group by breaking each unit unit into videos, reading selections, and printable activities. With the unique combination of both instructor and individual accounts, a trainer has the freedom to choose to host the training entirely face to face with their group (thus requiring only an Instructor account), or the ability to assign portions of the training for individuals to complete on their own time using their Individual accounts.

Instructor accounts provide additional activities and facilitation instructions for group practice. Customization of the units is also available for specific workplace training, community building, and ESL.

Culture Bump offers two online trainings for groups: the Toolkit of Culture and Communication and the Eights Step Tool to Cultural Connection.

The Toolkit for Culture & Communication
(Coming Soon)

The Toolkit is an introductory level course that introduces and deepens your intercultural understanding while introducing four essential skills for cross cultural communication competency.

Eight Steps to Cultural Connection
