Henderson, NV (PRWEB) August 12, 2015
Compass Business Solutions, a leading specialized learning partner for Cisco, has launched 5 Minute Learning Lessons as part of its Training-as-a-Service Program. 5 Minute Learning Lessons provide small amounts of information that help people remember relevant details pertaining to specific topics.
“On average people remember 10% of what they hear and 20% of what they read,” said Jules Trono, President and CEO of Compass Business Solutions. “This jumps to an 80% retention rate for what they see and do, making visual learning lessons the most productive training tool for companies. But people are no longer willing to participate in 1 hour webinars to see if they want to invest more time to learn about a topic. We are distilling down key topics to 5 minute lessons that focus on pertinent information, giving people the ability to determine if they want deeper training on a subject without a huge time investment.” Compass has launched 5 Minute Learning Lessons with short information sessions about Workplace Transformation and the shift from the Informational Age to the Digital Age.
“People have more training needs with less time to dedicate to training, so they need a better way to make good choices about how to spend their time,” said Diane Hicks, Global Accounts Manager for Compass Business Solutions. “5 Minute Learning Lessons offer students a faster method of determining where to spend their training time, and the community that we are building opens up the opportunity to share experiences and learn from each other while receiving mentoring from those that have gone before.” Compass is the largest learning provider focused on unified collaboration and telepresence training globally, and provides training for many other specializations such as Cisco, Microsoft, CompTIA, Mile 2, ITIL, Juniper, NetApp, Pexip, VMware and PMP.
