Installation on AG

Although experienced in most of the Toolbelt products, I'm new to Backup.
SQL Server 2012 AG, do I need to follow the steps in cluster installation https://documentation.red-gate.com/sbu/getting-started/installing/installing-the-server-components-on-a-sql-server-cluster or do I install it as an individual product on each server that is part of the AG?
The live environment does not have Internet access, so how do I install onto that?
Thanks for any assistance,

    Thanks for the reply Robyn.
    In this caase the AG does sit on top of a cluster but I'm happier installing it as if standalone (and we have plenty of licenses). Installing it individually means that I have full control, whereas we need to drag extra departments in for a cluster install.
    Thanks for your time,
