Training - Going the extra mile to ensure your success


Onsite Training

Premier Literacy regularly conducts classes for entire institutions to fully teach and demonstrate all of the products in the Premier Literacy Suite in a hands-on environment as a means of fast-tracking your implementation. Typically, these classes qualify as "in service" time for all teachers.

This option works well when you have a complete professional development day set aside for a comprehensive training session. We coordinate with you and your IT staff in advance to ensure that the sessions are successful and cover the tools most relevant to your needs.

Webinars

Premier Literacy webinars provide organizations with the flexibility and ease for planning and training staff. Webinars can supplement your scheduled Premier Onsite Training session or be integrated in your overall training strategy in stages and customized based on your needs.

When you schedule a Premier Literacy webinar, we set up a private online session for your staff that's tailored to the content you want covered during the one-hour webinar.

Training Videos

Each of Premier Literacy's tools contains a series of training videos on key features of the product. Videos are 5 to 10 minutes each and can be viewed at any time to learn or review tool features and functions.

If you are implementing the Premier Literacy Suite in your schools, watch our video on Keys to Successful Implementation.

Onsite Training provides live hands-on classroom experience

What do we teach?

For our training sessions, we focus on how to integrate literacy tools into a classroom environment and help students develop life skills that will take them beyond school. We expect all participants to come away with a good basic first-hand knowledge of the features and functions of our products. Depending on the size of your facility, we can accommodate up to 25 individuals in an all-day session. In addition to school personnel, we also encourage parents to attend these sessions if there is room. There are significant benefits to using these affordable products at home for students who are also using them at school. The following agenda is an outline of what we cover in our class during a day:

Webinars give you a flexible, just-in-time solution for your training needs

What is included in a webinar?

We work with you to determine your immediate needs. If your staff is new to the Premier Literacy Suite, a high-level overview of the Suite and a basic review of one tool may be appropriate. Product training on one comprehensive product  (e.g. PDF Equalizer) OR key feature training on two products ( e.g., Universal Reader Plus and E-Text Reader) can be done. Your input and sample files can be used to make the webinar relevant and engaging for your staff.

The cost of a one-hour Webinar is $200 per session / location for any number of people based on your organization's facilities and equipment (i.e., projector, speaker phones, Internet access) accommodations. To schedule a webinar, please call us at 1 888 514 9117 at least one week in advance of your desired webinar date to allow for preparation and setup time.
