Custom Technical Training - How It Works
Once you contact us, an instructional designer will meet with you and your team to analyze your training needs. We will look at the courses required, the audiences, the length of the courses, and the project timeline.
From this, a proposal will be submitted for review and approval. In most situations, the proposal will be in the form of a training plan. In some complex situations, the proposal will outline a more detailed task analysis. A second proposal with a training plan will then be generated.
The training plan will outline the training methodologies, training deliverables (student manual, instructor manual, job aids, training videos, self-paced material, and web courses), and schedule for initial classes. Options for different methodologies will be presented.
Once approved, the instructional designers will create the training deliverables using input from the customer’s subject matter experts.
The materials will be delivered in a timely fashion to allow review and revisions to them before the first iteration of the course is delivered.
The first course will be delivered by our instructor or your instructors depending on your preference. If your instructors are delivering the course, our instructor will sit down with your instructors and “train the trainer”.
The training material will be reviewed and revised for a final time following the first iterations of the training course to ensure the course hits the mark.
Training with YouTube :
Have you considered using YouTube to train employees? Some corporations are doing just that. This can work great for small incremental update training. Youtube handles the bandwidth requirements saving your company's resources. It may even provide some viral advertising. However, if the information is confidential and proprietary, then you will want the video on your server behind your firewall.
