On Line Electrical Training Is Dangerous

­We’ve been in the training business since 1990 providing class room, person to person, stand up, in your face training.  We use real equipment and devices, test equipment & tools to present technical (electrical & communication) and safety training primarily to bulk power users and electric supply companies.  And you’re correct we cannot compete with the prices you pay for on-line training.  Our instructors average more than 30 years experience in their specific fields of expertise – experience costs money.

We’ve discussed developing on-line training; convert our immense collection of subject specific PPT programs to On-Line; we decided it would not deliver a product we could be proud of.

We’ve even done live interactive closed circuit training on television – it worked – but we also had the student flown in from around the world to demonstrate proficiency to our instructors.  We’ve even done on line testing for one of the worlds leading chip manufacturers.  It worked but it was after in-your-face training and was to verify continued proficiency.

But in our classroom:

  1. WE answer your questions immediately
  2. WE ask you questions to assure you understood what we said.
  3. WE expand on a topic to increase your understanding
  4. WE use real world experience to demonstrate solutions
  5. WE adapt immediately if material content does not meet you immediate needs or desires
  6. And we stay after class to provide special assistance.
  7. WE let the student actually perform hands on task
  8. WE spend additional time in your facility solving issues
  9. And we understand lives depend on us presenting correct, applicable and timely information.
  10.  And we don’t have a computer geek interfacing between us and the student

Try any of the above “on–line” and let us know how it works for you.

If you want quality; it cost; but it lasts indefinitely and stand up training allows you to have a supervisor attend to see what your employees are actually getting for your dollar!

And finally when you analyze training cost ALWAYS look at dollars per student/instructor contact hour and ask your self did you get value for your dollar or did you just get a slip of paper?

Value training decreases cost, increases profit and improves moral.  Value training is an investment – Think about how you want to spend your dollars

Remember the Fram oil filter commercial?  – “You can pay me now or you can pay me later “ – It applies to training just like it does to your car filter.
