Why cimdi Certified Training - Our Philosophy
Certified training by cimdi professionals ensures a positive return on your investment in training. It also allows you or your staff to move ahead of the pack by preparing you for vendor certification exams which can demonstrate your skills.
cimdi believes that the time, money and energy you expend in getting trained has to be matched by increased productivity and business success as a result of the training back in the workplace. This relationship between investment and success is one of the strategic goals of cimdi training. Your success is our success. Our focus on building long term customer relationships with you is critical to our success.
Class size is one of the key factors that influence the success of your training program. At cimdi we keep our class sizes for our public and open enrolment classes at 8 and for some applications as few as 6 class participants. By limiting our class size we believe that we are providing you with the best quality training. Many of our competitors teach 10, 12 or more students which although satisfying a financial imperative, does not provide for quality training in the applications we teach.
This is a key ingredient in your success with your own training program. Instructors have to be not only capable of manipulating software, but they need also to be able to communicate their knowledge to the student. cimdi instructors go through a certification process which prepares them to train adults in an adult learning environment
Equipment and Our Facilities
cimdi's training facilities our spacious and modern. Our equipment is top of the line with MacIntosh and Windows environments. Our comfortable learning environment keeps you focused on your learning activities.
Passion and Committment
cimdi is focused on being the best at what it does - technical software training in a limited number of high-end applications. To this end our full-time instructors have both a passion for the applications they teach, and a committment to service and quality in their training programs. They are attentive to your learning needs.
Clients who select cimdi as their software training provider, get what they pay for. We provide top-notch training delivered with integrity at a fair price. While it may be possible for you to shave a little off the price by going with a lower-end competitor, in the long-run the difference in the return from best-of-breed and second-tier training will more than compensate for any initial difference in price.
Our Training Mission
cimdi's mission is to provide superior hands on training in a professional training environment by:
Certified Technical Trainers
Our trainers must demonstrate a thorough knowledge and ability to train adults in technical and software subjects. Each trainer must pass an intensive written exam on training techniques and concepts based on the Instructor competencies manual of the International Board of Standards for Training, Performance, and Instruction. A panel of judges evaluates each trainers ability to teach while watching them in a classroom setting. If candidates successfully complete both parts of the certification process, they become Certified Technical Trainers (CTT).
We provide 100 percent client satisfaction. Our small class hands-on learning environment ensures quality training. Ongoing support is available through e-mail and telephone access.
