SEMINAR WORKSHOPS & ACCELERATED COURSES

At Business Information Solutions Inc.(BISInc), we are constantly analyzing trends in the software training industry in order to improve the performance of our Instructor-Led Training (ILT) programs.  ILT will continue to be a preferred method of delivering software instruction to organizations.   Based on information gathered from our clients' needs, as well as user trends, we will explain our new ILT SEMINAR WORKSHOPS and ACCELERATED COURSES options.

Our goals for SEMINAR WORKSHOPS and ACCELERATED COURSES  are simple:

  • Maximize employee productivity and minimize organization costs by improving the performance of ILT.

  • Deliver ILT that provides relevant software skills, not redundant software skills.

FAQ's

What is a SEMINAR WORKSHOP?

A SEMINAR WORKSHOP is a two hour, hands-on workshop that covers a specific software application's feature or features.  For example, a word processing workshop may cover just Mail Merge or just Forms.  These workshops are either, compiled from our licensed course development program, or custom developed using organization-specific examples. 

We include the word "SEMINAR" in the SEMINAR WORKSHOP title, because these workshops are designed to be offered on a seminar-style schedule.  For example, Word 2000 Mail Merge (9:00 a.m.-11:00 a.m.), Word 2000 Forms (11:30 a.m.-1:30p.m.), etc..  Theoretically, three to four SEMINAR WORKSHOPS could be scheduled on one day, and users could choose to attend one SEMINAR WORKSHOP or all of them.  These workshops are designed for experienced users, but can be attended by beginners just wanting to learn how to use a particular feature or accomplish a specific task.

What is an ACCELERATED COURSE?

An ACCELERATED COURSE is a three to six hour course that covers several topics from one level in a short period of time, or many topics from various levels in a longer period of time.  These courses are designed for experienced users and move at a rapid pace.  Using our compiler, we select topics that are most important to an organization's training program and create a custom, accelerated course.

What are the benefits of SEMINAR WORKSHOPS and ACCELERATED COURSES?

  • It is a more productive and cost-effective way for an organization to upgrade experienced users to a new or existing version of software. 
  • User receives software training on specific topics in a short amount of time.
  • Employees are only away from their jobs for a few hours, instead of all day. 
  • It is a good supplement to standard ILT, CBT, and WBT.
