"Your training facility was great and I really enjoyed the laid-back, comfortable atmosphere at Axsys."
– Mark Strohbehn, Elite Dental Arts

Training

We take training very seriously. Axsys ensures that your organization maximizes its investment in software technology with world-class training. With emphasis on real-world functionality, Axsys Training Specialists evaluate the needs of attending users and focus their curriculum appropriately. Following training, support is available to reinforce concepts learned in class.

When your organization has unique requirements, Axsys will develop custom classes to address your specific needs. This customization will include pre-training evaluation by an application engineer and customer-specific curriculum. In addition, post-training and on-the-job support will be provided to reinforce learning. We can deliver your custom training solution at your site or at our facilities. This guarantees a total focus on your training needs in a location that is the most cost-effective.

Serious Training in a Relaxed Environment

Establishing an environment conducive to learning is a critical aspect of starting a training session off on the right foot.

You can be assured that participants walk in to a relaxed atmosphere and an environment that is welcoming and ready. Each of our large, individually temperature controlled training rooms are easily accessible, including to those with limited mobility. Equipped with high performance workstations to able each student to utilize their own workstation during training.

Each training room is free from distractions and noise while convenience is provided through readily accessible restrooms, telephones, snacks and lunch accommodations, helping to ensure that participants return on time following breaks or lunch.


Retreat From Stress


Our facility can provide an atmosphere of relaxation while encouraging interaction and education. Students are provided the opportunity to make use of our outdoor break area which features gardens with a waterfall and koi pond. Patio tables are situated next to your water feature where students can take a break or enjoy their lunch. The stresses of the day can easily be alleviated by the sound of the cascading water leading to the pond thereby better preparing them for continued instruction.

Surprisingly, there are numerous studies which suggest that adding water features in your property can provide many therapeutic benefits. The sounds of waterfall can aid in relieving the pent up stress and anxiety that build up during a trying day of learning.


Conveniently Located

The Axsys Corporate Training Facility is conveniently located less than one mile from the Wixom Road and Interstate 96 Freeway interchange where there are many choices for dining, shopping and entertainment.

Additionally, we are positioned in the midst of many competitively priced hotels many of which we have arranged discounted rates for our students.

Please give us a call or Contact Us if you need further assistance with directions or hotel recommendations. We are certain this will be one of the most trouble-free, and convenient training travel experiences for you and your associates.


Hotels Restaurants

Classroom training has been the foundation of employee and customer education for years. Many participants learn best and have the greatest opportunity for retention when they learn from a live instructor in a classroom setting. Classroom training affords the opportunity to incorporate various learning principles, including lectures, demonstrations, hands-on workshops, and retention quizzes.

Axsys Technical Education Services classroom training provides instructor-led classes in a dynamic learning environment. Courses give you a hands-on approach and are delivered where it’s convenient for you—regionally or onsite.


Regional Training

One option for classroom training is to attend regional training courses. Depending on the training subject, learners may thrive best in an environment where collaboration is easy and peer insight is available. Getting away from the office can often be beneficial for employees: They can focus on learning without work distractions and also build camaraderie with other users that can result in valuable knowledge-sharing relationships in the future. In addition, participants can work with industry colleagues to solve problems, glean knowledge and outside perspective, and even learn tips and tricks.

Our regional classes are held at state-of-the-art learning facilities in convenient State-wide locations each with fully-equipped computer workstations for each learner. This is a popular learning format that ensures your team of employees receives the same hands-on training approach for message consistency. Courses include lecture, demonstration and software interaction (exercises).

On-Site Training

When you want the ultimate convenience, yet still want the benefits of classroom training, our Education Services trainers can deliver prescriptive or customized training right at your location. When we train onsite, there is no outside influence, therefore the training is focused solely on your needs. Because there are no employee travel expenses involved, you save money, and learners have less time away from work.

Our qualified instructors bring their insight, knowledge, and various teaching styles to meet the specific needs of your company. Whether its training on enhancements, new modules, or for new staff, we can deliver standard or custom curriculum to match your application and software configuration. The Axsys Application and Technical Consultant Teams are also available when additional services are needed.
