ON-SITE/NEAR-SITE SHORT COURSES
RON BREWER on-site/near-site courses provide the following benefits:
Convenient and Cost Effective
It is convenient and economical to have the class at or near your work location. Eliminating individual student travel time and expenses make On-Site/Near-Site training a cost-effective option - pay one fee for a training course at your location and only the course instructor's travel expenses. Not the entire class. Consequently, on-site/near-site courses provide training savings of 40 to 60% per student, plus no lost travel time, no weekend travel costs, and no associated complaints.
Tailored to Satisfy Organizational Needs
Every organization has its own unique requirements and the course instructor will listen to, discuss your training requirements, and work with you to deliver a program that is tailored to meet your goals. Our modularized approach to course design allows us to cost effectively mix and match materials from several courses to provide expert customized training at minimal cost.
Continuing Education Units (CEU)
Course design and development is in accordance with the standards established by the US Bureau/Department of Education for continuing education and the course instruction/evaluation adhere to the guidelines developed by the IACET. Course attendees meeting the minimum evaluation requirements can be awarded the traditional Continuing Education Unit (CEU). To receive the CEUís the course attendees must (1) attend all training sessions, (2) with a successful evaluation, (3) turn in a signed/completed course evaluation questionnaire, and (4) retain the signed certificate for verification of CEU's. Each CEU represents 10 hours of instruction so four 6-hour class days would be 2.4 CEUís.
Restricted attendance for confidentiality of DOD, ITAR, or company proprietary issues. With the appropriate authorizations, presentations can be provided to cover ITAR or Classified information, equipment, operational parameters, and materials. Students gain by being able to ask questions about and get answers/solutions to problems that they are currently facing -- and restricting attendance to the same organization helps build stronger teams.
Control Over Presentation Schedule
Time is money! Your schedule takes priority. Dedicated On-Site/Near-Site courses let you decide the best time to conduct the training course. Coordinate with budget constraints or schedule for quick delivery! There is no need to plan around the next scheduled published course. This approach provides the fastest delivery of training, no matter where the location.
Flexible Class Location
Class can be presented at client facility or at a near-by hotel meeting-room. This is generally a better approach because it eliminates the client requirement of providing a classroom and reduces students being temporarily "pulled" away from class. Plus it provides students with a change in their work environment. We will even make all of the arrangements for you at cost -- even arranging lunch, coffee, and snacks (at cost) for the students. Just let us know and we will include the cost in our proposal. If your organization has a preferred hotel, let us know. Keep in mind, however, some presentations must be held at the client's facility. These will require a classroom setup with tables for the students, a table for the instructor, an overhead projector, and a screen. Possibly, even secure storage.
Low Cost and Fast Startup
The cost for on-site/near-site training is based on instructor time, travel and lodging expenses, materials preparation and shipping costs, and costs for meeting rooms and refreshments, etc. On-site training results in a 35 to 40% savings. Comparing the cost for 10 students, the "break-even" point for an on-site short course is usually 4 to 6 students. Course reservations require a 35% initial payment (or a P.O.) including estimated expenses. Balance is due and payable at the end of the training. Discount terms are 1% discount 10 days net 20 days on the entire amount. To get started just email or call with the number of students, location, contact information, and approximate start date. Logistics will generally require about 3 to 4 weeks. If there are specific topics that you would like to have addressed let us know.
