Great-training activities are in store for 2017! In response to your need for training, we are continuing to offer our popular classroom workshops in 2017.

As we plan our 2017 training calendar, we are looking for utilities interested in hosting one of our training courses. Having utilities host training events has proven to be a rewarding experience for both the host and training participants. In addition to the benefit of not having to travel to a class, the hosts also have the opportunity to showcase their facilities to their colleagues, sometimes even offering a tour of the control room!

What is expected of a host?

In return for 2 free seats in the training class, we ask that the utility provides a room (large enough to hold 15 participants), A-V, and catering (lunch and morning/afternoon snacks).  Should the class have more than 15 registered paying participants, we offer one additional free seat to the hosting utility.

How to become a host

If you are interested in hosting one of our 2017 training classes as listed below, e-mail Daniela atdaniela@qualitytrainingsystems.com with the following information:

  1. Class you would like to host (see the list of classes below)

  2. Potential dates

  3. Location/City where you would host the workshop

Please note that we will do our best to accommodate all potential hosts; however, there are a couple of things we have to consider when accepting an offer to host a class:

a)    How easy is it to travel to your location? (We always try to keep travel costs and time as low as possible for our participants.)

b)    Do we have an even distribution of the classes throughout the year and the country?  For example, we would not teach all Intro QTD™ classes in the first quarter on the West coast.

As always, we are happy to answer any questions you may have regarding one of our workshops or hosting a workshop.

We ask that you let us know no later than December 9th, 2016 if you would be interested in hosting a workshop

We are looking forward to a year full of training excitement and great learning opportunities!
