Step 3: Train Workforce

Training That Sticks

We are living in exciting times! Just as Joseph Swan, a British scientist in 1878 and Thomas Edison in 1879 could not have imagined the impact that developing the incandescent filament lamp would have on technology, so too we cannot imagine what remote work can do for society and the quality of our lives. We are on the cusp of something great! This may seem too positive an attitude to take over working remote, but the possibilities are endless with the technology of our day.

Working remote requires considerable preparation and balance to maintain a workable pace that allows one to be equipped for maximum productivity. We define a remote “pace” as working at a sustainable speed that allows one to continue without burnout. Many workers just do not have the training to equip them to succeed – our certifications help prepare professionals and leaders to embrace this trend toward remote work.

Developing remote policies and standards doesn’t do much good if nobody follows them. That’s why Step 3 of our Remote Control protocol calls for robust training that focuses on every aspect of success in the remote workplace. Our professionally designed courses allow learners to build their remote skills through an engaging mix of interactive learning modules and videos. Formative and summative assessments appear on-screen to maintain learners’ attention and create accountability. 

Based on adult-learning theory, these self-paced courses deliver practical information in a user-friendly format. As learners progress through the Remote Professional lessons, they earn badges that count toward their Remote Professional Certificate. Those with Remote Professional Certificates can then take leadership training and earn a Remote Leader Certificate.
