IT TRAINING NOW AVAILABLE FROM CANON Thursday 30 November 2000 PDF Print As part of its development as a complete IT supplier Canon, the leading business solutions provider, is now offering IT training programme for companies to ensure maximum productivity gains are realised from the implementation of their IT systems. Courses offered include standard events for common systems such as e-mail, web and the MS Office suite of programmes and bespoke courses tailored to the unique needs of any business and its IT systems. In a time when skills shortages and staff retention are key issues within the IT industry, Canon sees the development of people skills as a key success factor alongside successful integration of hardware and software for an organisation to meet its business goals. Beginners to advanced level courses are available in a wide range of topics using either classroom or Web-based training methods, to suit the needs of each business. From Microsoft Word to Macromedia Flash, Canon's certified technical training is broad enough to troubleshoot the newest hardware and software technologies. "Canon Training Solutions are available for everyone whether they are designing networks or sitting in front of a PC for the first time," explains Duncan Souster, Business Development Manager, Canon. "Many companies have installed expensive ERP systems and are not seeing the savings they expected at the start of the project. Our research shows the lack of adequate staff training on such systems is one of the factors for this." "It is important in today's competitive marketplace to identify IT training relevant to specific business needs, otherwise money and time can be wasted. Canon's programme offers a broad enough range to ensure that companies get the right knowledge to the right people at the right time," he adds. Canon has already successfully supported all levels of its 3000 staff in UK offering experience in IT consultation for more than a decade and now it is time to extend this knowledge to its customers. "Together with our partners, New Horizons and Fuel, we will be able to provide professional training of the highest quality in nine training centres across the country. And for those users where time and travel is a problem, Canon is already exploring the benefits of e-learning - a concept which consists of interactive training modules suitable for delivery across a range of platforms" explains James Romaines, Director, Canon Business Solutions. "Initially available to customers in London, and next year across the UK, we aim to offer further programmes tailored to suite specific needs. Of course, maximising the productivity gains from print technologies is an area where we have unique expertise," he continues. Courses come with a full results guarantee which entitles any delegate to retake any course within six months for FREE.
