Project Description

Technology Strategies for Working Remotely

When COVID-19 came, it changed how we work with others and how we work in our businesses. It may be that many will never return to a formal office setting. Instead, they will work remotely from their home. Working from home brings many challenges. This Workplace Education program will help bridge some of the learning challenges that come when we work remotely.

If you need to learn strategies on how to work remotely from home, this program will set you off in the right direction.

Customized For Maximum Skills Transfer

The 40-hour Workplace Education program is broken down into 11-week segments. Each class is 3 1/2 hours in length. This provides enough learning time but does not totally exhaust the participant. Each participant is interviewed before the program begins so that the program can be customized to achieve maximum benefit. We believe that one size does not fit all. Each program has a framework, but customization is the key to participant success and skills transfer.

Everyone learns differently. This must be incorporated into the Workplace Education program. A great instructor makes the program not only informative but also enjoyable. When you take a program from Jeff Brown of Alpha Social Media Inc, you get both.
