How To Choose a Software Trainer They'll Thank You For

Survey says: "Sitting through software training is painful".

Knowing how to use MS Office and knowing how to train people to use it are two different things. Download this Special Report and discover how to choose a trainer that leaves your employees feeling useful.

  • Claire Langfield, Executive Assistant

    Chippewas of Rama First Nation

    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.
