HOSTING QTS COURSES
QTS Boot Camp (4 days)
April 14, 2020 - April 17, 2020
This new “boot camp-style" workshop combines both the QTD Intro and Advanced courses. The introductory portion of the workshop (Days 1 and 2) teaches QTD users the basic operation and functionality of the software. You will receive hands-on training in the basic features of QTD and a chance to practice what you have learned. This introduction provides a solid foundation for beginners and a helpful review for experienced users. The advanced portion of the workshop (Days 3 and 4) is designed to give participants exposure to the more complex features of QTD. You will learn how to take your training program to the next level using QTD and how to maximize the full capabilities of the tool.
SAT: Train-the-Trainer (3.5 days)
June 9, 2020 - June 12, 2020
The goal of this introductory Train-the-Trainer workshop is to translate and teach the Systematic Approach to Training (SAT) concepts in a language that is familiar to system operators. This workshop will also help training professionals from different backgrounds understand how SAT concepts translate into system operator language. This course is not specific to QTD.
