Get more out of online training
100% Completion is Just the beginning!
Learning online, anytime with PublicWorksTraining.com is easy. But simply completing the training is not the point, it's the push toward something more.
Whether it's a more thorough understanding of new concepts; a more efficient way of doing things; or a new, more advanced material, tool, or piece of equipment, the training should lead you to something more.
The following tips are based on our experience with learners like you at local road agencies all over the U.S. Don't settle for 100% completion.
When you register for an in-person workshop or conference, the first thing you do is look at your calendar to make sure you'll be available. And when you arrive at the event, you turn off your phone so you can give the instructor your undivided attention. You have to do the same with online training. Make room on your schedule and eliminate distractions. Give the training your full attention.
One of the nicest things about online training is that you can pause it any time for any reason. If something catches your attention or you don’t quite get it the first time through, stop the training. Take notes, think about it, backup and watch it again. You're not stuck in a lecture hall or a classroom, and you're not tied to somebody else's schedule.
If you see something interesting or if you learn something new, tell someone about it. Our training is overflowing with nuggets of wisdom that are great for starting conversations. Talk about what you learn. There is no better way to clarify understanding and plant new knowledge firmly in your brain than to discuss it with other people.
If you have questions, don't hesitate to call or send an email. Many of our courses include direct email or phone support with the instructor. For courses that don't include direct support, you can call or email PublicWorksTraining.com for help. If we can't help, we'll put you in contact with someone who can.
