Part 1: A robust and frequent training program helps staff use your IT more effectively.

An Ask the Experts panel discussion with Community IT CEO Johan Hammerstrom and David Deal, co-founder of Build Consulting for a webinar on nonprofit IT staff training – how to do it, why to do it, and how to make time to prioritize it.

Training is a security, cost-saving, and productivity measure. Learn real-life examples of technology training that saved clients money – or helped them realize they were already paying for the software solution they were looking for. Learn tips for integrating continuous training and ideas on making it fun and productive for staff. Learn how to reward staff for learning and save your organization time and money in the long run.

In this webinar on nonprofit IT staff training, the Community IT and Build Consulting panelists took questions and shared tips on how to get the most out of your IT investments through IT training.

As with all our webinars, this presentation is appropriate for an audience of varied IT experience. Build and Community IT are scrupulously vendor-agnostic, so this conversation will feature a realistic look at the impact technology training can have on your efficiency and budget.
