Construction Software offer a wide range of training solutions to suit your requirements and your budget. We also do custom training should you want a course customised for your specific company requirements. All training is conducted by our staff, not “contractors” or “consultants, this ensures that you get a trainer that is a CATProjects specialist. Training can be carried out at one of our training facilities, interactively on line or at your premises if they are suitable.
CAT ADMINISTRATOR TRAINING
This is included with your software set up and is one on one training with your nominated CAT Administrator and one of our Construction Administration Specialists. We show you how to best set up CATProjects and how to manage your system to the point of being ready to go live. This is conducted by remote meeting and takes 2-3 hours.
Initial training is usually carried out the day of “Go Live”. We give you a proposed training plan so that your team can be organised into relevant groups to ensure there is no wasted time. This session can be on your site (location dependent) on our site or interactively on line.
During this initial training we ensure everyone has enough information and skills to get up and running. It is suggested that there is then a follow up session after one month once some experience is in place.
TRAIN THE TRAINER
For larger or remote organisations a “Train the Trainer” option is an efficient and cost effective training method. This will take three days and we will provide you with material to assist you in training your own people. This can be done at your place or our place.
Refresher training twice a year for core staff is really worthwhile, its an opportunity to revisit existing features and to review new ones. The more you know about your system the more you get out of it. This session can be on your site (location dependent) on our site or interactively on line.
Induction training is for the new employee to help them to hit the ground running. This training is generally around two hours and is held one on one interactively on line. You let us know their role and any specifics and we will ensure the team learn enough to get them going.
