Content Training

People of all ages learn in different ways. They are interested in different things, and they have succeeded in life by developing strengths that are unique to their presence on earth. Training in any content area must respond to the identities of those acquiring the new skill. We excel in being able to identify your need and tailor a response.

We provide on-site, online, video conferencing, webconferencing and other forms of interactive training to bring people together to find their way of approaching challenges. Popular topics for which we have developed curricula include the following:

bullet Academic Skills in STEM-Related Occupational Environments (beginning to intermediate readers)
bullet Basic Life Skills ( beginning to intermediate readers)
bullet Pre-GED and GED Prep
bullet Portuguese and Spanish
bullet Computer Training
bullet English as a Second Language
bullet Grant Writing
bullet Beginning Readers Series for Native American Students, in Budgeting, Handling Money, and Cultural Job Issues
