Computer Training & Consulting
Below is a comprehensive list of the computer services I offer:
Individual Computer Training
When I say individual computer training is highly customized, I mean there are often multiple ways to accomplish the same task. Sometimes, a standard and "technically correct" method may not be the best way for you. When I recommend customized computing solutions, I always take into account:
Individual Computer Training Rates:
- The specific goal(s) you need to accomplish.
- Your individual aptitude, work processes and preferences.
- Work group expectations and organizational culture.
Have a quick question or need help troubleshooting one specific feature? No problem. I'll prorate my fee.
- One Hour Training Session: $110 for a single individual one hour computer training session to significantly improve your speed and efficiency.
- Schedule two or more consecutive training hours and the hourly rate is discounted to $100.
So call me. email me. The sooner you schedule your training session with me, the sooner you'll be getting your work done faster and more efficiently!
While the goal of New Hire Training is to provide consistent training to all new employees, Executive Training is highly customized and flexible. Executives have unique computing needs than their peers and they vary in their level of hands-on document production and scheduling. My first step in every Executive computer training session is to evaluate what features to cover and how thoroughly. I never waste an Executive's time teaching them to use aspects of the software they will never need. Instead, my goal is to determine exacty what tasks they would like to be able to accomplish, show them the fastest and easiest method to accomplish them, customize their software settings to smooth and speed up their workflow and when possible, create custom forms and shortcuts just for them.

Boost the productivity and efficiency of your executives and staff by providing a training seminar during a meeting, as part of a catered or "brown bag" employee luncheon, or during any other time during the work week. (Computing seminars are most effective when incorporating the use of a firm's projection capabilities.)
I offer three pricing structures to choose from:
$150 - A Single Seminar
$285 - Buy one, get a second one at 10% Off (Save $15)
$390 - Buy one, get two more at 20% off (Save $60)
$800 - For SIX Seminars - (BEST VALUE - Save $100)
Classes are scheduled in blocks of three hours or less to maximize retention & training effectiveness.
The recommended maximum class size is 12 students.
Because classes are interactive and NOT lecture based, it will always take longer to cover the same material with 12 people than it will with 6 people. Class content is never rushed, regardless of class size.
While fees are based on a 6 person minimum, actual class size may be less if preferred.
The most cost effective format incorporates a single computer on overhead projection. Because training is so interactive and customized, this format has proven to be not only cost effective, but extremely successful. The best case scenario is for every student to have access to a computer during class.
Class pricing is based on a per student fee and is calculated using the following formula - $25 dollars per person, per hour, with a 6 person minimum. For example:
- The per person fee for a 2 hour class is $50
(With a 6 person minimum = $300)
- The per person fee for a 2 ½ hour class is $62.50
(With a 6 person minimum = $375)
- Per person fee for a 3 hour class is $75
(With a 6 person minimum = $450)
When applicable, facility rental, equipment rental and material duplication costs will be passed directly to the client with no markup.
I've said that it takes me minutes to customize software according to my checklists, resulting in an increase in efficiency. Keep in mind while the customization of a particular computer takes minutes, it's taken me 20 years to compile the lists. I customize sofware after it is installed, apply updates and service packs, configure printers.
Signature programs are custom training programs and I need to write some descriptive text to go here.
I'm an approved provider of continuing education credits for SHRM. Unfortunately, in accordance with SHRM's ____Body of Knowledge, computer training is not eligible for SHRM continuing education credits.
