We provide "Train the Trainer" classes and consultation to staff members who are subject matter experts (SMEs) charged with developing employee training sessions.

Needs Assessment

Let us assist you in gathering information and feedback about a specific topic to determine if training is needed.

We can assist you in identifying the purpose and outcomes of your needs assessment or focus group, develop and write questions and facilitate or train others to facilitate and concisely summarize findings.
