Compass Business Solutions Launches IT Hot Topics for its Training-as-a-Service Mentored and Blended Learning Program
August 5, 2015, Henderson, NV – Compass Business Solutions, a leading specialized learning partner for Cisco, has launched IT Hot Topics training sessions as part of its Training-as-a-Service Program. IT Hot Topics sessions provide 30 minutes of information relevant to today’s IT Professionals followed by an open question and answer period for active participation.
“We know that it can take three to five years to fully train a technical professional and make him or her wholly productive. But we also know that there is an immediate need to focus on important concepts that help IT Professionals with their day-to-day jobs,” said Jules Trono, President and CEO of Compass Business Solutions. “IT Hot Topics are designed to refresh information for experienced technicians and to help less experienced techs gain a high level understanding of today’s relevant topics. Our students want the ability to act intelligently even prior to attending training that offers deeper details.” More than 140 people attended the first IT Hot Topics session, which covered subnetting. The second session, which will cover SSL VPN’s, will be held on September 9th at 2pm Pacific Time.
“People have less time to dedicate to training, while still needing to learn about more topics and products than ever before,” said Donna Wyvill, Content Development Manager for Compass Business Solutions. “IT Hot Topics and our other programs offer students the ability to get live training from experienced individuals on topics that are relevant today. The community that we are building opens up the opportunity to share experiences and learn from each other while receiving mentoring from those that have gone before.” Compass is the largest learning provider focused on unified collaboration and telepresence training globally, and provides training for many other specializations such as Cisco, Microsoft, CompTIA, Mile 2, ITIL, Juniper, NetApp, Pexip, VMware and PMP.
