An instructor travels to your office to train your engineers, discuss projects and the nuances of your digital product.

Unforgettable Training

But you might be wondering:

What happens when the instructor leaves?

How will your engineers retain knowledge?

Will the knowledge be applied to your projects?

How do I show the effectiveness of the training?

Big Nerd Ranch's teaching style gives students the ability to understand concepts, especially as it relates to your digital product. When Big Nerd Ranch instructors leave, your engineers are provided a login to The Frontier - an online screencast subscription created by the very same instructors your engineers are familiar with.
