Can You Afford NOT to Train when

Technologies and Industries Change So Rapidly?

Are you or your team ready to face the challenges of tomorrow with what you know today? With technologies and industries shifting so quickly, businesses need to embrace training just to keep up.

Some may complain that training is too expensive or fails to deliver its promise. But what is the real cost of slower sales and lower growth? Maybe you and your organization stop looking for perfect employees and start training them instead?

As Wharton management Professor Peter Cappelli recently wrote in The Wall Street Journal:

“Companies need to stop pinning so much of the blame on our nation’s education system. They need to drop the idea of finding perfect candidates and look for people who could do the job with a bit of training and practice.”

We can help you.

New Jersey Teacher Wins National Award with Help from ATI!

Seven Seals Award
Video Clip: Click to Watch
Terry Dougherty wins Great American Teach-Off  for Her Work Tutoring Children of Military Families

Nominated by a local Rotary Club, Dougherty was one of top ten finalists left fighting for the prize. Hundreds of teachers from all over the country were nominated for this prestigious honor. Participants, families and friends were then all allowed to vote online for their favorite teachers, just like in American Idol. Each week, after all the votes were tallied, the two teachers with the lowest number of votes were eliminated from the contest.

Jim Jenkins, President of the Applied Technology Institute (ATI), helped support Terry Dougherty for the award by forwarding the announcement of the contest to his instructors and people that he knows in the military. The people responded.

From all over the world, all branches of the services, veteran organizations, service clubs etc., they responded. In what became a weekly ritual, they responded and voted for her. They keep voting, each and every week, until the end, until she won.

The real winners in all of this are of course the children. Dougherty’s husband Tom started the tutoring program three years ago as a way to help children in need. Because military families relocate frequently, their children often suffer at school.

The Seven Seals award is given through the U.S. Department of Defense to a civilian who is working to help military families. The award comes with a $10,000 grant. She will to use the grant money to purchase equipment for a mobile lab. The lab will allow parents stationed overseas participate in school activities.

In a knowledge-based economy, your success is directly proportional to the amount of knowledge you possess

As Thomas Edison observed, “We don’t know one millionth of one percent about anything.” At the rate at which new information is generated today, doesn’t it seem like the gap between what you know and what you need is to know is growing at a dizzying pace?

From submarine sonar to military radar to an orbiting spacecraft, you or your team must face the challenges of tomorrow with what you know today. With the practical knowledge gained from a short course, you can put textbook theories into real-world practice and expand your problem-solving and risk management skills significantly.
