Courses and Training:

It’s tough to set aside time to develop your skills so we pack our courses with relevant information and are presented in a way to ensure you retain what you’ve learned. Everyone has a different learning style and we factor that in when we create our courses. We use a combination of lectures and in-class exercises to not only make the material fun and interesting but also memorable so that you’re able to put what you’ve learned to use right away.

Most classes come with either an audio CD with a summary of the course material or a CD-ROM that contains the class presentation, tools and additional course material so you can always reference it whenever you need it. All courses are interactive with group and/or independent exercises and most social media courses are taught in a computer lab.

Each course can be offered privately for your club or organization. They can also be presented in a one on one training session to meet your personal needs. If you'd like more information on how we can tailor a course to your particular need, please contact us. If you'd like to see our public course offerings, please visit our course calendar.
