...You can spend as little as one hour with our trainer, during which time you can pick up some great tips and techniques. You can concentrate on one subject or mix and match from any of the Microsoft suite of products in order to build your skills – the choice is yours.

IT Surgeries

IT Surgery days are short, focused, 1:1 training sessions, where a member of staff can receive personal attention with a training consultant, concentrating on solving a problem, or overcoming any difficulties they may have with such standard applications as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Project and Visio.  The day is split into six sessions broken down into one hour slots, with a short break between each, allowing for exit and entry of the delegates.

Surgeries are a popular option by companies and are used to complement standard training programmes, software upgrades and rollouts, etc. or where a more flexible approach to the conventional one-day training on these applications is more appropriate.  Depending on the number of staff within an organisation, Surgeries are normally held once a month and are easy to set up, as all that is required is a small room equipped with a computer connected to the network. 

During the session, delegates are not restricted to requesting help on one product only, but can mix and match the subject matter across the suite.  Whatever they need to know, the trainer is able to assist, whether this is helping to fix a current issue they may have, or highlighting better ways of using a product, enabling them to become more efficient and productive in the future.

This tailored approach to training enables the delegate to access their live data and maximise the time with the trainer by working on specific areas of need.  By having ‘bite size’ 1:1 training, it allows delegates to work at their own pace, without pressure, as they are not away from their desks for too long.  Further added advantages for delegates attending a Surgery are:-

bullet
As a follow up after attending a course, where they are still experiencing problems adapting what they have learned to a specific task
bullet
To address a specific need that does not require a full day’s training and can be resolved in a shorter period – a quick fix option
bullet
If they have a specific need outside the areas covered by a recent training course
bullet
If they simply wish to build on their existing knowledge and become more confident with the IT applications they use
