PubCom's custom group training, either in its training lab or onsite at your location, is ideal for small and large groups that need training tailored to their specific work requirements.
Work teams who develop websites or produce publications find that this type of training brings everyone to the same skill level, which can improve your team's efficiency.
Custom group training covers not only the latest web authoring, graphics, and desktop publishing software, but also the process of creating websites and print publications: your group learns a complete set of skills helping them work more confidently.
Sessions are designed around your needs.
These custom group classes are designed to meet your needs. We meet with you and your work team before the training sessions and review the type of projects you’ll be creating, current skills, technical requirements, and the capabilities you wish to develop.
Sessions are flexible.
We can train by the hour, half-day, full-day, or multi-day sessions so that we can create a training schedule to meet your organization’s requirements. Evening and weekend schedules are also available.
Sessions generally are six hours long plus one hour for lunch and short breaks (seven hours total time). Our most requested time slots are 9am – 4pm and 8:30am – 3:30pm.
If your organization needs a different time schedule, please contact Bevi Chagnon so she can arrange a schedule that meets your staff’s needs.
