October is Express Training Month at City of Boroondara

We have decided to trial a number of our day courses in an express, half day format during the month of October for the City of Boroondara.  The content of express classes will cover the key information and concepts of the relevant program, but given their shorter length are  ideal for staff requiring MS Office product training, but who find it difficult to be released from duties for a full day. Attendees will be provided with the full one day course manual so they can follow up on the topics that cannot be included in the shorter version class.

Staff who prefer their training in a longer format, which allows for more content and the opportunity for more hands-on practice, will still be able to  to attend our traditional one day format classes, as these will not be taken off the schedule.

If we get enough interest in the half day express format classes after trialling them,  they will become a regular offering on the monthly IT training schedule alongside the one day classes.

Course Reviews: Site City of Boroondara

The City of Boroondara are a local council for whom I have been doing the in-house IT training since 2000.  Each time we run a class the attendees have to fill in an online evaluation.  One of the joys of this job is you are always being evaluated on each day’s work (in writing and by strangers); and there would not be too many jobs where that is a daily occurrence.

Here’s a couple of feedback forms from the other month, sent to me by Sangita Parsot, the Training Coordinator at Boroondara.
