Mentored IT Training Courses

As the CATALYST is modular in structure, the mentoring component can be purchased independently of the instructor led course or the certification, and is known as the Mentored Training Program (MTP). The mentoring component of the full CATALYST program provides a better long term acquisition and retention of curricula than we find is possible with standard courses.

The MTP provides the assessment, design of a personal mentoring plan, full supporting manuals and online materials, and the weekly mentoring calls for a six month period. It does not include exams but they can be purchased separately. We ask that the company / delegate sets aside one or two 45 minute sessions a week for the delegate to work through the curriculum.


The Mentored Training Program:


1. Reduces training downtime dramatically

2. Increases curriculum retention by breaking it into "bite sized chunks"

3. Applies it to the current work environment by the weekly discussion with the mentor

4. Returns training investment faster than any other method of training


Many delegates, however, find that not only do they get the skills they need for their business from the Mentored Training Program alone but, much more often than not, they are also able to purchase, schedule and successfully write the associated exam/s
