Throughout 2011, Linear is offering free, pre-recorded training Webinars/videos for dealers, distributors and installers. These Webinars cover the latest topics, technical training, product overviews, and more. When participants meet the requirements for satisfactory completion of any of the training programs, they receive a certificate indicating the program title, the instructor, and, where applicable, the number of CEU units earned.
“We are sensitive to the costs associated with traveling to face-to-face class sessions,” said Suzan Prior, training manager for Linear. “To best accommodate those who want to learn but cannot attend in person, we have invested in this new, remote learning program, with live instructors and the opportunity for questions and answers.”
Linear customers also have the option for self-study — training at their own pace using the company’s online training courses — which include knowledge assessment tools.
Linear University still provides free, one-to-three day training courses every month at its Carlsbad, CA campus. Many of the courses offered are CEU-Certified and meet requirements for continuing education credits. This format also creates a personalized setting for dealers and installers to gain hands-on experience with Linear products, guided by veteran technical trainers and product experts.
“Our on-site sessions are designed to be extremely interactive, so customers gain optimum value from them,” Prior said. “We limit class sizes to eight people to allow for personal interaction with the instructors throughout the courses.”
