Specialized Training

Training IT talent is different than training your general employee. The complex language and themes used require a “translation factor” in order to achieve broader understanding. Technical professionals must not only understand their proposed solutions but also be able to explain them to audiences with varying degrees of scientific background. Our training programs help these scientists effectively speak to the masses. Each course is delivered from the vantage point of the SME with an underlying focus on the who they will be presenting to, or collaborating with.
