Training Programs

During the first sixteen years, Commercial Solutions Training and Development produced custom and tailored classroom training programs for several Fortune 500 companies, including JC Penney, Exxon Mobil, Church and Dwight, OxyChem, World Travel International, to name a few.
  • If your existing collection of in-house training programs are dated, over-exposed or less effective than you'd like, we can make recommendations and improvements.
  • If you're rolling out a new initiative that requires new employee knowledge and/or skills, we can develop training and support materials and we can train your facilitators.
  • If an incident or emerging trend (i.e. Workplace Violence, Cyber Security, Pandemic Readiness) calls for a consistent employee response, we can recommend and develop policy-compliant training for presentation by managers or facilitators.

Online Learning

As the 'on demand' advantages of online training, in its various formats (LMS-based, video streaming, podcast), emerged and thrived, Commercial Solutions turned its development attention to producing content for these media. Click here for examples.
  • If your training budget no longer allows for the costs that come with classroom training sessions, we can transform conventional programs into on-demand, narrated online sessions that test and record learner mastery.
  • If your company is required to certify that employees know specific regulations or work practices, we can develop online training that ensures learning and captures mastery test results.
  • If you want to encourage employees to adjust their behavior but can't really justify a full blown training session, we can develop engaging, to-the-point 'Explainers' that quickly send your message.
