Introductory Training Courses

Introductory Training Courses are designed to get the individual to a competent stage of being able to use the specific software. Advanced training can be negotiated after the course.

These courses can be run as a one-on-one course (either at your home or work or at our training room). To run the course at your computer, you will be required to have the relevant computer software installed on your computer and have any additional requirements needed for the course (for example your own Internet connection for the Internet Course).

These courses may also be run as a group training packages (special rates will apply) but you must supply a computer for each student, all with the required software.

Generally, there is no waiting for the course to be run as we fit you in to our schedule as quickly as possible (dependent upon current work load).

Each course is generally run in 2 hour/day blocks until the course is completed. However, this aspect can be negotiated in accordance with your needs. General training days are Tuesday to Thursday between 9am and 5pm. Other days and evenings may be available by negotiation.

Each student is supplied with a course manual as a part of the costs. At the conclusion of the course you are provided with a certificate of completion.
