Training Testimonials

Thank you for your work on our training project. It was enjoyable working with Washburn Tech. As a participant in the training, I was impressed with the quality of the trainers and the lessons. As coordinator from Health Care Policy, I appreciated your dedication to the success of this project. When there was a problem, you provided immediate attention to the issues and always monitored the progress of the project.

Many members of our staff have gained skills in Word and Excel because of the knowledge and skills of your instructors. This has been a most important need that my superiors had the foresight to address and I must say this project was a success.

As director of an area public health department, I understand the importance of keeping staff’s skills sharpened and ready to meet ever-changing technology demands. Dan Schmidt and his team at Washburn Tech’s Continuing Education office have been an excellent training resource for us in the design and implementation of a customized, on-site computer training program for our entire staff.

Dan has been extremely helpful during all stages of the project. Prior to starting the training, Dan met with us several times to listen to our needs and learn more about the work we do. Through our conversations we were able to identify not only software applications that could assist us in our day-to-day work but also levels of staff proficiency needed to be competent in applying computer skills to their work.

Aside from knowledgeable, well-prepared trainers, Washburn Tech was flexible in developing a training curriculum that matched schedules and time available for classroom instruction. Providing training on-site proved to be a very cost-effective training option for our agency.
