Sending an individual staff member to a seminar can be a convenient way for that person to learn new skills and gain new knowledge. But what if there are a number of people in your organization who need staff development? Then in-house training may be the most effective and economical solution for your organization.
In-House training is where an APA instructor comes to your site to teach a class for your staff or group, or when a class is held exclusively for your staff or group at an off-site location of your choosing. Employers may choose in-house training for a group of employees. Organizations with a variety of sites spread geographically may choose in-house training in order to bring together people from each of their sites. Membership groups may offer in-house training exclusively for their members. Whoever is in the group, in-house training offers you the opportunity to sponsor staff development on a topic of your choice.
Generally, we send an instructor to your site to teach the class. If you do not have an available meeting or training room at your location then you can usually work with a local hotel to rent a room at a reasonable cost.
Set up requirements vary based on the course selected. For courses without a student computer requirement you provide the training facility; two flip charts and markers or white board, and; an LCD projector and screen for the instructor. We provide the instructor, from APA's instructor pool, with all expenses paid by APA as part of the course fees; and course materials including a handout of any late-breaking issues. Certain courses require that each student have a computer during class. Generally as long as the computer can access the internet it will meet the requirements for the course. Most courses DO NOT require a student computer.
Because each circumstance is different, we can't give you a standard set of prices for in-house training sessions. But we can tell you that if you want to train eight people or more, in-house training will probably be less expensive than registering your staff members for a public seminar.
