KPMG now offers live virtual training to fit the new realities of remote work via Microsoft Teams. You do not need a Teams account to join any of the sessions.  

With many employees continuing to work from home at least part of the time, KPMG in Bermuda has developed virtual training experiences as a new way to offer our courses to companies. 

We are providing training opportunities in the form of virtual public open-enrollment courses delivered to employees from different  companies. Like all the courses we’ve offered in the past, our virtual sessions will impart the skills people require for real-work situations.

If you would like to take part in any of our courses please contact: Barbara Dill either via email at training@kpmg.bm or via telephone at +1 441 295 5063.
