Some degree of discussion is advisable in advance of the course to ensure the syllabus reflects the needs of the target audience.
In many cases, a brief introduction to a subject will fulfil the training requirement of a particular industry. An awareness of the topic will enable staff to ask the right questions when interpreting documents, negotiating with external consultants or purchasing equipment.
For engineers and technicians working in a specific field a more detailed approach may be more appropriate with an expansion of technical points, software set-up procedures, calculation methods, error analysis, application techniques, etc.
The courses may be held either on company premises or in a local hotel as required. Lecture notes are provided for all courses.
