“That is new to me… I didn’t know that… You can do what?… Neat!…” These are all the phrases that make us smile when we have new trainees in our classroom, and we hope to hear some of that this week!
At noon today we kick off our newly revised free training format and are welcoming 12 people to frigid Minneapolis! (c’mon, only 7 miles away from Mall of America!) So you may ask yourself, would this benefit me? Of course it would, unless you are better than our very own tech guru, Steve Davis. We have many trainees that attend our program because they are new at their place of employment and need to learn the basics; but we also have a large audience who come to expand their knowledge so they can provide more for their customers and co-workers.
Many of you may have already attended a training session here at Four51′s headquarters, but this week marks the first week with our new format in place. In the past, we offered a one week course lasting M-F. This allowed a lot of classroom time for Mike Moebeck to crack his famously old stale jokes, but meant people had to give up their weekends catching flights in and out of town. We’ve changed that.
Here is a breakdown of our new training:
Monday Noon to 5 pm: CommerceTools Administration
Tuesday 9am to 5pm: Variable Text Products, Pageflex lesson 1 &2
Wednesday 9am to 5pm: Pageflex lessons 3-6 and Lesson Challenges
Thursday 9am to Noon: Pageflex lessons 7 & 8, Summary, and Goodbye!
Stay tuned for an announcement on our next training session so you can start planning your visit.
And please tell us! Have you attended training at Four51? What are your thoughts on the shorter program we’ve put in place?
