TKB Associates, Inc. provides a training program that normally consists of the following elements:
End User Training.This involves teaching end users the mechanics of the system.This training will be conducted at the end users location.Each group of 8 or fewer individuals will receive any instruction necessary to ensure comfort with the new imaging system.The amount of training necessary will depend on their level of familiarity with Windows applications.Our experience has shown us that most users can become proficient in a short time period, provided that the class size is normally limited to no more than 8 individuals and those participants are free from interruption due to phone calls and other day-to-day business.
System Administration Training.This involves teaching System Administrators the everyday maintenance of the imaging system. This phase of the training is conducted at the end users location.
Implementation Consulting.This training is highly recommended.It involves assisting those responsible for the record management functions develop strategies for translating existing paper filing and indexing structures into their electronic form.Electronic filing is different from paper filing, and records managers need to take the differences into account in setting up their systems.It is also normally conducted at the end users location.
Supervised Hands-On.This training involves supervision of users using the system in actual operation, where they can pose questions directly to our trainer as they arise.Time for this training is normally one day per group, with the physical layout of the location being the only limitation on group size.
