Construction Training on CD-ROM Provides Unique Training Solution!

 — August 1, 2001 — 

iSkills, a subsidiary of Xactware, Inc., offers a unique multimedia approach to training your staff on construction concepts and terminology. This one-of-a-kind training system, called ILX Construction Training, presents 40 hours of computer-based construction training and testing, complete with full-motion video, audio and animation-all of which can be run on your home or office computer.

If your job requires you to know anything about home construction, ILX Construction Training is for you. This comprehensive training tool is divided into ten instructional blocks that teach students construction from the ground up. "Our easy-to-use program thoroughly trains and tests students on all aspects of residential construction," says Matt Weir, iSkills General Manager, "and does it in a way that keeps them involved and interested." (A complete outline of the course is available at www.ilxct.com.)

ILX stands for Interactive Learning Xperience. Studies show that interactive training, like ILX Construction Training, improves interest, comprehension and retention. This unique course effectively uses today's multimedia technology, including professional animation and full-motion video, to make even the most difficult construction topics crystal clear. Unit exams and a student management tracking module help supervisors determine a student's probable job performance once they've completed the course.

The training system covers all subject matter thoroughly, and teaches students everything from reading a blueprint to inspecting damage caused by fire and water. The expert narration is better than having your most experienced employee spend forty hours training and testing each new hire. ILX Construction Training takes care of training, leaving your best people productive and your company more profitable.

One of the biggest advantages of computer-based training is how cost-effective it is for even small businesses to get top-notch training. With ILX Construction Training a business can use the system as much as they want to train as many employees as they want, when they want. "It's a real bargain for any company who wants to set up an in-house training system in a matter of minutes," says Weir.
