The Nevada Irrigation District in Grass Valley selected Sierra College Training & Development to provide computer training classes for over 40 employees. When the first two four-hour Excel classes were so well received, seven additional sessions were offered.
The computer skills classes were presented at four different levels, so that employees could select which seminar to attend, explained Tess Andrews, Finance Manager for the Nevada Irrigation District. “We also benefited from the program being tailored to our specific needs,” said Andrews. “We didn't have to go through course material that didn't apply to us.”
The Sierra College mobile training lab makes it easy to train up to 15 employees at once. “We really appreciated the mobile lab and the instructor, RoseMary, coming up to train us at our place,” said Andrews. “It saves travel time and allows people to come at the last minute if there's room.”
