FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

General Questions About Onsite Training

1.I found a course I like, but I only have one person I need to train. Do you offer public

We are not a public seminar company with a side business focused on onsite training. Rather, onsite training is the core of our business. We do not offer public programs.

Our half-day programs run three hours (e.g. 9 am – 12 pm) and our full-day courses seven (e.g. 9 am – 4 pm). We will work with your scheduling requirements to determine the exact timing for your program.

3.What is the maximum number of participants I can put in each class?

Over the years, we have learned what size group works best for each of the courses we offer. If you have a large group, please call us so we can learn more about your needs. On a case-by-case basis, we will work with groups larger than those for which we have listed prices.

4.I want to train one group in the morning and another in the afternoon on the same

topic. Do Ipay for two half-day sessions?

No. We charge you the full-day rate for the total number of people in attendance.

5.What do you provide, and what are our responsibilities?

Depending on the program, we will either ship training manuals or a short PDF for you to duplicate for your group. To run interactive sessions, we prefer seating configurations that allow for team problem solving. We also ask that you provide us with flipchart paper, easels, and markers. Your facilitator will work with you to confirm the specifics for your session.

We are happy to recommend a resource if asked, but we never sell products during classroom time.

7.May I speak with the facilitator before the session?

A big part of this business is fit. We strongly encourage you to speak with your facilitator before your session.

1.I’ve reviewed your outlines, and I want certain elements from a few of them. Can you

create something for me?

Usually. Your facilitator will work with you to determine your course agenda.

2.I want something you don’t offer. Can you create a program for me?

Please contact us about custom course crafting.

1.Where do you get your training materials?

Although we design the bulk of our courses from scratch, from time to time, we will use external resources to supplement our offerings.

2.I am a consultant, and I would like to purchase your materials to use with my own

programs. Do you sell your content?

We do not sell our content to other training providers.

3.Do you offer a train-the-trainer model to corporate clients?

On a case-by-case basis, we offer a train-the-trainer model. For example, a hospital wants to improve its customer service and hires us to develop a solution. As part of that process, we deliver the initial sessions and then turn the delivery over to the organization’s internal trainers.

1.How long are your virtual training sessions?

Virtual session segments are between 90 minutes and two hours. Whereas most programs are single-segment offerings, a few of our programs are multi-segment courses.

2.What are the technology requirements?

Each participant needs a computer with a high-speed internet connection and speakers. Ideally, those computers will also have a microphone and webcam.

3.I do not have a group. May I join a private webinar session?

Because of client confidentiality, we do not allow individuals to join private sessions.

We believe our fees are fair and reasonable. We do not offer one-time discounts or put our services on sale. For less expensive options, consider our online training or virtual-classroom option.

2.Another company offered to do the same kind of work for half of what you charge.

We can’t comment on why others charge less or charge more, but we can tell you our facilitators are highly experienced and command fees beyond those paid to beginners.

3.Do you offer a discount if we purchase several courses from you?

Yes. If you schedule and pay for multiple courses in advance, we offer a 5% discount.

4.We are a federal or state government organization. Do you have a GSA schedule?

Training Courses and Webinars – Business Training Works #business #degree #online

Business Training Works, ® Inc.

Welcome to Business Training Works, the onsite training provider.

Whether you need customer service, train-the-trainer training, a multi-session program for emerging leaders, or something else related to soft skills, we can help.

For more than a decade we’ve worked with Fortune 500, government, education, religious, and medium and small business clients to achieve their employee development goals.

The core of our work is instructor-led training delivered at our clients’ locations. For many topics, we also offer interactive webinar training available anywhere with a high-speed internet connection.

If you’re seeking a blended learning approach or self-paced instruction, we’ve created a handful of online courses and partnered with a respected publisher to provide a library of online titles.

ONSITE TRAINING

Our tailored workshops cover traditional topics such as business etiquette, communication skills, cross-cultural communication, customer service, diversity, human resources, management, supervision, leadership, negotiation, presentation skills, time management, sales, training-the-trainer, and writing.

We also offer more narrowly focused courses in areas such as chat etiquette, military writing, GPO Style Manual usage, and customer service for healthcare.

We are not a commodity course provider, and we recognize that no two clients are alike. We will address your learning and development goals on a schedule that works for you.

We can provide you with full-year training programs, individual sessions, conference breakouts, lunch programs, or keynote sessions.

The workshop overviews found on this site suggest course length, learning objectives, and program flow. For most of our clients, these descriptions are a starting point. However, upon request, we can teach the programs exactly as described.

If you don’t see what you are looking for, please call us. We frequently develop new offerings at the request of our clients.

INTERACTIVE WEBINARS

Some webinars are good, and some are not. If the idea of distance learning causes you to yawn, it’s unlikely you’ve participated in one of our webinar programs. Our distance-learning instructors know how to maximize their allotted time, engage participants, and meet training objectives.

ONLINE TRAINING

If you require training for an individual or need to train people working in different locations, our online training programs could be the answer. Some of these programs are proprietary classes, while others are available through our corporate training partners. The course overviews for these online programs are listed alongside our onsite training descriptions and labeled as online offerings.

1.How long are your virtual training sessions?

Virtual session segments are between 90 minutes and two hours. Whereas most programs are single-segment offerings, a few of our programs are multi-segment courses.

2.What are the technology requirements?

Each participant needs a computer with a high-speed internet connection and speakers. Ideally, those computers will also have a microphone and webcam.

3.I do not have a group. May I join a private webinar session?

Because of client confidentiality, we do not allow individuals to join private sessions.

We believe our fees are fair and reasonable. We do not offer one-time discounts or put our services on sale. For less expensive options, consider our online training or virtual-classroom option.

2.Another company offered to do the same kind of work for half of what you charge.

We can’t comment on why others charge less or charge more, but we can tell you our facilitators are highly experienced and command fees beyond those paid to beginners.

3.Do you offer a discount if we purchase several courses from you?

Yes. If you schedule and pay for multiple courses in advance, we offer a 5% discount.

4.We are a federal or state government organization. Do you have a GSA schedule?

Yes, please contact us.

5.We are an existing client, and your prices have gone up. Will your honor the rate

quoted to us last year?

Our goal is to maintain relationships with our clients. Please contact us to discuss your particular situation.
