Training Summary:

Fard Solutions Consulting understands our client busy schedules that do not allow for prolonged travel to a distant training facility. For this matter we created In-House training whereby our trainer will personally conduct the training in clients’ office. Our training classes can accommodate classroom sizes from up to twenty five(25), but we have found fifteen (15) or fewer students per class to be the most productive experience for our participants. We ensure every participant has all the tools they need to succeed in every class.

What we offer?

  1. Our participants enjoy a true technical, “hands-on” experience, with virtual images on each participant’s personalized computer. Our training lab utilizes our simple yet effective format of Learn it, Do it, Prove it. Every class is comprised of PowerPoint-driven lectures and “hands-on” labs.
  2. We have created training classes and the ability to custom-create Quest training courses that meet your company’s specific needs.
  3. At the end of the training we provide quick reference booklet to every participants which is the summary of every custom course we trained.
