We create custom computer-based training (CBT) courses designed to meet your training needs. In today’s ever changing media environment, we stay on top of the technology that works smarter for you. We work directly with your subject matter expert (SME) to develop the course parameters. From there we schedule the development of the various aspects of your project including script-writing, photography, video, audio and design that will enhance the students learning efficiency.
Computer-based training is the better way to train. And for good reason. If done right, it can produce great results by decreasing costs and improving performance. Also, unlike a one time classroom session, the CBT course is available for others.
CBT Supports the Organization’s Goals
Improved training costs. Producing learning content is time consuming whether it’s online or not. With elearning, each time the course is accessed your return on investment improves because you are dividing the fixed production costs by number of uses. You also have savings through decreased travel, reduced material, and hopefully improved (and more efficient) performance.
Decreased material costs. Let’s say you have to train how to arrange equipment in a sterile environment like an operating room. If you had to use the real environment, it would be costly. Even setting up a fake environment has material costs and labor. By creating the environment online and letting the learner practice, you never have to worry about the costs associated with set up, use, and clean up.
Increased productivity. Because CBT's are not bound by geography or time, you can control training’s impact on production by training people during down times. In addition, with the current economy, you’re asking people to do more with less. So, a CBT is a great way to give them the tools and skills needed to enhance their performance.
Standardization. You may have a great facilitator, but that’s no guarantee that the courses are presented the same across sessions. Computer-based training allows you to create a standardized process and consistency in the delivery of content. It also compresses delivery time. I’ve combined CBT courses with facilitated sessions. Computer-based training delivered consistent content. Live sessions were interactive case studies that applied the information.
