Training Development / Delivery

We offer a full range of training development services including:
Technology Based Training (eLearning)
Our eLearning programs feature:
This type of training is cost effective and flexible. It reduces resource requirements and employees don't have to travel
to attend a course.
On top of the latest trends, we design the courses to be engaging, learner centered, and hands-on through a variety of activities, such as role plays, demonstrations, discussions, practice, games, drills, and quizzes. Through our design, the instructor facilitates the process using lesson plans and PowerPoint slide shows, but the learners are the ones who engage in a variety of activities to achieve maximum retention of information. Using proven learner-centered designs assures that the participants meet the course objectives and enhance their skills and knowledge.
Looking for a combination of traditional education and eLearning? CANAC can design a curriculum for you to do just that! These are cost-effective without losing the "human factor" of the presence of an instructor.
Not sure what you need? Our team of railroad experts can assess your company’s needs to help you determine the type of training or solution required. CANAC will analyze your workplace to determine the critical skills, knowledge and abilities of your employees. We have the solution for you; whether it is an "off the shelf" basic safety course or a customized practical course, we can help!
