Yawn-proof software training

Why hire a trainer?

Invest in your staff.

Computer TrainingWhen looking to hire new staff, businesses typically outline a list of required skills and experience a candidate must possess prior to being considered for the role. We often see "computer experience" or "knowledge of Microsoft Office a must" in the proposed job descriptions. But just how many candidates, or staff on hand, actually have the exact experience that employers are looking for?

The truth is, while many candidates or staff members may have the same volume of experience with a given software or program (e.g. 2 years working with MS Excel), they may not utilize or even be aware of all the same functions and capabilities as others with the same amount of experience.  Different industries and organizations (even different departments within an organization) use the same software in different ways – experience and abilities can vary greatly. Instead of "hoping staff learn on-the-go", consider hiring a trainer to improve your business operations.  Here's how a trainer can help your staff:

  • Level the playing field. Deliver more consistent end-products and services when your staff has a consistent knowledge of the software and tools they use.
  • Share the load. Meet tight deadlines and balance demands on staff by transferring or sharing projects among them.
  • Flesh out existing skills. Encourage employees to explore the full capabilities of a program and how to apply them to their projects.
  • Be prepared for the next step. Train your employees to use the latest version of software to ensure a smooth transition and less downtime when you upgrade.
  • Increase productivity. You don't know what you don't know. A trainer can explain ALL the ins and outs of your software to ensure your staff is using it to its fullest potential.

    The majority of my computer training focused on Publisher. I have received positive comments and feedback from several of my colleagues on the changes between my first attempt and current expertise creating the monthly internal newsletter for my department. They enjoy the updated format and the way in which the information is presented. 

    Deborah assisted me through a learning curve, as I had not previously had any exposure to this program prior to joining Rama. She also provided me with a refresher course on PowerPoint and Excel.  Deborah is a patient teacher and tailored the training to suit my job requirements.
