While on the job training is still a large part of your training program Verhoef Training now offers an introductory course for engineers. The training aims to introduce staff to the terminologies used in the industry and the standards that govern it. It explains H323/SIP and ISDN and provides practical installation and faultfinding on at least 3 types of equipment from desktop to room systems.

Thinking about Onsite?

If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. Its a cost effective option. One on one training can be delivered too, at reasonable rates.
