Group or Corporate Training

Training is at the core of efficiency, quality, and consistency of service in every field. Further, training ensures that an organization’s investment in tools and software does not get wasted because users did not understand how the tools work.

I provide training in a variety of topics and can customize a curriculum to fit your organization’s needs. Training experience includes the creation, production and presentation of quality training programs for classes as large as 100 people. I deliver training in live classroom/lab settings, remotely via video conference or online collaboration tools (Skype, GoToMeeting, Adobe Connect) and recorded videos to allow customers’ information to be shared across the world without incurring unnecessary travel expense. Topics have included:

  • Specialized software training for Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard and Joint Staff acquisition software (Joint Capabilities Integrated Development System)
  • Office productivity programs including MS Office products
  • Content management systems such as SharePoint and WordPress
  • Ministry teams that implement technical worship production
  • Ministry teams that provide hospitality in a large (2400-person) church
  • Inventory control systems
  • Project Management
  • Team Facilitation
  • Crime Prevention (Maryland Community Crime Prevention Institute, Maryland State Police)
