OnSite Training

If you send 12 people to a traditional classroom setting you’ll end up paying around $8,000+. This doesn’t include the costs of travel & lodging. Trying to coordinate schedules and down time are also hidden budget killers.

Bring KLH onsite for a set training fee that uses a custom course outline that targets your specific workflow. No per person limits or add on fees. You also get the advantage of onsite consulting since we can get a look at the real workflow in an up close and real world situation.

$2,500 Two Days

$3,000 Three Days
