In this business environment of constant change, many employers are seeking  resources and curriculum development opportunities to train new workers and upgrade existing employees.  This is critical for a number of reasons: 

  • It has been well documented that there is a significant mismatch between the technical skills required for many of the current job openings and the skill sets of potential applicants.
  • Training employees on a variety of technical skills benefits not only the career growth of the individual but allows the employer to shift these employees to where the work is.
  • The rate of change in technology reguires  constant upgrading of technical skills.
