MICRO-TRAINING
Sand Dollar International has introduced a new concept in training. Micro-training provides training for very small class sizes of 1-3 individuals in their own working environment. With this concept, we can train your students in a way that is customized to your environment. Training can continue for as long as is necessary to get your staff up and running in a new or existing environment. Our professional staff can walk the students through a complete system set-up, or just provide them with a refresher course that updates skills and provides new information.
Micro-training can take place in as little as three days or for as long as six months, depending on the needs of your organization. Because the groups are very small, the instructor can immediately address the needs of each student. Students will learn basic techniques as well as those that are very specific to their own systems. The instructor is able to work through problems with the student so they will have a better understanding of their own system and will be knowledgeable on how to troubleshoot in the future.
This system is excellent for system administrators, companies that are transitioning to UNIX or LINUX from another environment, or companies who have purchased new computers and need to train one or two professionals to set up and maintain their new systems.
Micro-training can combine video training and mentoring to meet specific customer needs and provide a program customized to meet the needs of each student and answers questions specific to their own work environments.
This training is purchased on an hourly basis with a minimum commitment of twenty-four hours of training. All materials are included. Travel is additional.
 
MENTORING
Our mentors provide training that is customized to meet the needs of a specific individual. This training is designed for individuals and provided within their own work environment. This works well for a student that must spend a portion of each day maintaining their work load.
