What Makes Our Training Programs Unique

AQS Solutions uses the latest in adult learning principles in the development and presentation of its training programs. Our programs represent educational excellence, in addition to technical excellence. Our professional program developers and the subject matter experts who present our training programs understand:

  • How to properly utilize and balance four methods of conveying information and skills to our students: lecture, participative lecture, discussion, and self-directed learning (including both discovery and role play).
  • How students learn and acquire skills: Learning and skill acquisition occurs by affording students a balanced approach to the subject—seeing, hearing, responding, solving, and feeling/experiencing.
  • How student learning and skill acquisition can be imbedded through the use of the Deming Cycle (PDCA Model): Our students understand what they are about to learn and why (Plan). They acquire the knowledge or skill (Do). They verify the acquisition of the knowledge or skill (Check), and practice the skill in a real world class exercise (Act).

The staff at AQS Solutions is committed to helping you put your management system to work to achieve the results you demand.

All of our courses are available for presentation at your organization.
