What if I have learners that have different skills sets, some beginners and some more advanced?

Your training specialist will assist you with developing a curriculum that will ensure that no one is left behind. Depending on group size, your consultant may suggest delivering multi sessions so that beginning students don’t feel pressured and more advanced learners don’t feel like the pace is too slow.

Because every situation is different, it is best to discuss this with your Tech Touch Training Specialist, who will help you to come up with a plan that is both economical and efficient.

Where does the training take place?

Your customized training can be delivered either online via Zoom or Webex, or we can bring the training to your location. If you don’t have a space at your site and would prefer not to attend the training online, we can find a location near you, for example at a hotel conference room or similar location.

Talk to your Tech Touch Training Specialist about your options, and we will find a suitable option that best fits your needs and that of your team.

What version do you teach?

Our team of expert instructors can deliver training in any version, so you will be able to learn on the exact version you are using for your projects.

Most businesses have access to the Microsoft 365 Business plans, which allows staff to download the latest version. The most recent version is what we recommend, as you will have the latest features and capabilities.

Tech Touch instructors keep up-to-date on the latest tools for each program in the Microsoft suite. Because our instructors are Microsoft Certified, they often get access to the latest version of these programs in advance of them being made available to the public, so they have familiarized themselves with the latest tools before you have access to them. Therefore, we are able to deliver your best training experience when you are.

Is the training with a live instructor?

Absolutely! Whether you attend the training online or at your location, there is a live instructor delivering your class. No video recordings here.

Having a live instructor available so your team can ask questions and get real-time assistance, is the best training model for learning programs in the Microsoft Office Suite. At Tech Touch, we want you to have the best learning experience possible, so live instruction is a must.

What are the training times?

Most of our clients prefer to have class times starting at 9 am and ending at 4 pm, with a 1-hour lunch period.  This is something your Training Specialist will discuss with you based on your needs and availability.

Do we have to attend an all-day session, or can they be broken up into smaller sessions?

This is one of the biggest reasons Tech Touch offers customized training solutions. Your time is valuable and your team may not be available to leave their work for an entire day. We can offer half-day options and/or break your training sessions up over multiple consecutive or non-consecutive days.

Be sure to discuss your options with your Training Specialist.
