Training Logistics & FAQ

General

You can get instruction in a way that is best suited to your individual or group learning needs. We offer a range of learning formats: private group training, instructor-led online, mentoring and self-paced training. For more information email or call us at 888-601-6010 ext. 1.

For our instructor-led online courses, we offer a variety of times to suit different U.S. time zones. The course description lists the time of the class. Private group training is scheduled at the client’s convenience. This includes off-hours such as evenings or weekends to accommodate global attendees and those who cannot take time away from the office.

If you have five or more students who need training on the same topic, private group training can be more cost effective than public training, regardless of the software tool, student role or experience level. Private group training can be delivered onsite, online or both, depending on your situation. If desired, we can also work with your company’s data to make examples more relevant. For more information about private training, email or call us at 888-601-6010 ext. 1.
