Custom Training

Get relevant skills upgrades for your team – at the perfect pace

Custom Training

If you figure out a way to add more minutes to the day, and days to the week, we’ll be first in line asking you how you did it. Short of figuring out time travel, we do have the next best thing: capitalizing on the efficiency and effectiveness of the time your team spends with us.

Half of our education deliveries are Custom / Private

For nearly 20 years we’ve worked with hundreds of companies to create best-in-class learning programs. And we’ve gotten really good at it.

We provide clients with specific training solutions to achieve targeted goals and achieve measurable results. That means identifying the most relevant content for your team and delivering it on the timeline you have to maximize your return on investment.

For instance, we can cherry-pick specific parts out of several different courses to create a custom learning solution. In addition, let’s say you need eLearning along with an Instructor-Led course – and you want to include a post-course follow up via our Guided Learning. Done.

Bottom line, we love getting specific requests. Believe us, we’re up for the challenge.

MAX’s 6 steps to building your custom learning solution


Custom Delivery Stories

1. Goal Achieved: Successful, Smooth IT Transition by Coordinating New Skills Training with IT Rollouts

We delivered customized hands-on Lync workshops with 3 sessions a day, 2 hours each, coordinated with the client’s IT rollouts. Immediately after employees returned from their new skills training, they found  their IT department had Lync installed on the desktop, ready for their use.

By collaborating with the client’s IT Department, we were able to time the training sessions for optimal effectiveness.


2. Goal Achieved: Reduced Employee Anxiety and Resistance to Change  – with Education

Our client was going to migrate systems to “the cloud” and was experiencing a high level of resistance and anxiety from their workforce. Working hand-in-hand with the client’s IT Integration team, we developed a custom education plan that brought a common vocabulary and vision of what working “securely in the cloud” would look like for their global IT team. Our learning solution included tailor-made instructional content, examples, and workbooks. Delivery was customized to fit local, national, and international locales. Read the story.


3. Goal Achieved: Improved IT Management’s Technical Acumen for Enhanced Staff Communications

We developed a three-pronged curriculum approach for this client’s nationwide team of IT managers, enabling them to better connect with and understand their developer staff. Our learning solution included:

  • An executive overview on Scrum and Agile
  • A “Java for IT Managers” Course
  • A “Basic Web Design” course for IT Managers
