Preparing for Annual Reviews

I liked being able to participate live, but online. I thought this was a great opportunity.

Manager, Dispatch

I’ve really enjoyed this training so far. The exercises are very helpful. I wasn’t sure how I’d like virtual training, but it’s been very engaging. Time flies by!

Training Development Program Manager

My favorite part of the virtual workshop was the interactive learning – I definitely learn better when I get the chance to practice using the software and get real-time feedback.

It’s nice to have this option to save on O&M expenses for training costs.
