TechMentors helping student

You and your employees need to be as productive as you can to make it in today’s competitive market. To become productive, people need knowledge and skill. In the past gaining knowledge was limited to reading a book or going to a class. Skill was gained through practice. Both took lots of time and included examples and exercises that had nothing to do with your business.

What if there were a better way? What if the instructor was a skilled mentor who first learned about your business and then created written lessons and exercises that applied directly to your business? What if the courseware was a searchable PDF file? What if the teaching was recorded for later review? And what if, after the instruction, the mentor periodically met with your people and followed up on their progress? Would that make a difference?
