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

$4,800 Full Week

Travel costs and training materials are extra.

Please feel free to contact us at anytime for more info or a custom quote.

Classroom training is possible via our training partners in most major US Cities. It is useful when Onsite training is not possible or when combining several students with other clients can help keep budgets within reason.

Most classes run 3 days or can be configured to cover specific topics within your workflow.

ClassRoom Rates per Student

One to Three Students $1,200

Four to Five Students $1,000

It also has the advantage of eliminating travel and lodging costs from the training budget.

It will require a reliable connection to the Internet for those involved.

Online classes can be configured to cover specific topics within your workflow as well as provide traditional training to participants in remote locations at the same time.

Timeframes possible can be from a few hours to several days.

OnLine per Day Rates per Student
