Standard trainings (PowerPoint Basics, Excel Advanced and the like) sell a bit less than ten years ago. Most people nowadays know how to create, save and reopen a file. Formatting some text or calculating the sum of a list of numbers is done in a trice. We are buried under emails and the latest news is drawn from the Internet. However: the common knowledge is sometimes disappointing.
That is why we keep offering these well-known standard courses. It concerns Office versions 95 to 2010 Nl and UK.
An extensive description, complete with an outline of these trainings, can be found in Diensten.doc. (This file is temporarily not available.)
For those who want to go further, we have the Star*trainings. Here we really explore one topic in depth. Many people will be aware that they don't use their 'state of the art' program to the max. In a regular basics or advanced training they won't be fully satisfied. Such a course usually involves too many diverse topics with too little depth. A few (!) examples of Star*trainings:
Likewise we have Star*trainings for Outlook, Access, Windows etc. See Diensten.doc for an extensive description of the outline and contents of these trainings. (This file is temporarily not available.)
On-site support and training
On-site, individual and 'question driven' learning, while the daily, real problems are solved in the meantime. That's what we refer to as 'on-site support and training'. A helpdesk employee is always in a hurry; we take the time. And we (us) run some risks! Whether or not we can work up to the real problems in a limited amount of time is an issue. We'll need a clear agreement on this from the start.

Development and consultancy
Sometimes it doesn't pay off to master all the ins and outs. At that point, it’s time to think about 'outsourcing'.
The list below is not exhaustive but it gives an impression of the kind of odd jobs we can do for you. We focused on topics that will make sense to most of you. In practice we come upon jobs that involve the overlap of various disciplines.
Regular primary education
All that, and more still ...? :-)
As a 'fully qualified teacher with license a to j + k + r', I sometimes teach class. But only if the need arises: now and then, here and there, a few days of substitution.
A very different world from company trainings but there are also similarities. Differences: the age, the topics, the facilities and ... the earnings. And after a day full of small children, I’m really worn out. Similarities: the joy of 'assistance in learning' and creating a pleasant atmosphere. But I wouldn’t dare a spontaneous ten minutes of meditation in a training. Read my blogs Gedrag van ... and De gelukkige (klas) meester for an impression.

In about sixty years many things happen, naturally. Here, in short, are a few 'high lights'. From the contents of the presentations and example files, it will automatically become clear with what, and on what level, I have run things these last fifteen years.
