A word to the wise for those responsible for certification programs: Give the people what they want. Increasingly, that means adding an online training component.

When it comes to styles of instruction, the CRN Training and Certification Survey showed 30 percent of solution providers prefer the self-paced online training option, which was more than for any other type of training. Another 20 percent gave a nod to a hybrid method: an off-site, instructor-led classroom that includes an online component.

Maxwell Dodge, manager of the FishNet Inside Response Sales Team at FishNet Security, a security VAR in Kansas City, Kan., said many of his product vendors are moving rapidly to embrace Web-based training options, a development he appreciates because of his team’s ability to stay up to date without relying on visits from vendor field sales teams.

“Web-based training has given us the avenue to focus on this without it really costing anything,” Dodge said.

Indeed, cost and convenience emerge as common themes among solution providers who are fans of e-learning. Sometimes training options can make or break the decision to pick up a product, said Bill Abram, president of Pragmatix, an IBM Business Partner in Elmsford, N.Y. (leer más…)

[emp] RxSchool Launches New Live On-Line Education Software

Denver –
Denver — RxSchool, a leader in on-line pharmacy education and learning management software, announced today that it has launched its new RxSchool Live(TM) on-line delivery software. RxSchool founders Rich Barnhart and Steve Croke will unveil this new technology next week at the NACDS Pharmacy and Technology Conference in San Diego.

RxSchool Live(TM) is a powerful e-learning platform and will meet the needs of thousands of pharmacy professionals and educational providers. A recent survey conducted by RxSchool reveals that over 90% of pharmacists and pharmacy technicians prefer to participate in continuing education programs that are delivered live or on the Internet. Furthermore, many states now require pharmacists to receive a certain number of live continuing education credits and with a limited amount of traditional live education programs available, many pharmacists welcome this new option.

Rich Barnhart, chief technology officer, stated: “The best part of this new platform is that we don’t have to sacrifice quality when delivering our educational programs. In many ways, this software exceeds our students’ expectations and provides a more interactive and quality experience than the traditional live classroom setting.”

RxSchool Live(TM) not only provides a quality educational experience; it also qualifies for pharmacy continuing education credit. Busy pharmacy professionals with a computer and Internet connection can now meet their live continuing education requirements from the comfort of their home or office.

Steve Croke, president, adds: “Our students are embracing this new technology and our clients are using it to enhance their current educational offerings. The applications for this medium are more cost-effective than traditional live settings and are not limited to live continuing education.” (leer más…)
