We understand that every business and organization is different and pre-packaged training programs don’t work for everyone. Our client-focused approach allows us to design training programs that are customized to deliver the results you need.
We approach each engagement with our long-term goal in mind; a lasting, beneficial relationship with our clients. We know that in order to achieve that goal, we need to meet and exceed your expectations. We do that by spending time up front to understand the challenges your business faces and the uniqueness of your organization so we can help you get the best return on your investment.
One size rarely fits all, which is why we deliver the training you need in the style that suits your business. In the classroom, the boardroom, the lab, on the site or online, our professional staff will analyze your needs and develop training in the format that works best for you.
Customized e-Learning The reality of today’s working environment is that people are stretched more than ever before. The need to improve job skills coupled with less time has resulted in the need for training options that go beyond a traditional classroom. We develop customized e-learning courses to suit your goals, participant computing environments and budget.
Classroom (workshop) Our classroom workshops are taught by experts in the field using advanced adult learning techniques that encourage understanding and promotes communication and the practical application of skills. Interactive hands-on training is a key component of our driver and technical training programs allowing students to obtain practical experience on state-of-the-art equipment.
Success is measured by participant satisfaction, verification of acquired skills, skill implementation and the achievement of stated objectives.
The Job Grant will provide direct financial support to individual employers who wish to purchase training for their employees. It will be available to small, medium and large businesses with a plan to deliver short-term training to existing and new employees, and will:
- Provide up to $10,000 in government support per person for training costs.
- Require employers to contribute one-third of the total costs. There will be additional flexibility for small businesses to provide an in-kind contribution towards their share of the costs.
