There are a number of things that an organization can do to ensure that training at their location will be successful. To help organize this process, this FYI is arranged in a timeline, starting with the day that training is scheduled. There are also items to be done one week prior to the training, the day before training, and on training day. If you have any questions, from scheduling to preparation, please contact Terri Hammond, 1-800-288-8076 ext 126 or
When Training Is Scheduled
Items to complete at the time training is scheduled:
- Reserve the room.
Also reserve any special equipment that will be used (i.e. projector).
- Notify all attendees.
Notify participants of date and time, and specify any special materials they should have with them for training.
- Coordinate with trainer.
Send agenda, directions to training facility, and participant list to the trainer. The participant list should include the user's job title and experience level with Escape. If this training is hands on, make sure there are never more than two participants per workstation.
