Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is “Enterprise Training?”

A: “Enterprise Training” refers to any customized course LSTI offers via a number of delivery methods, all of which are described here. This includes instructor-led training (classroom), live online courses, and asynchronous or on-demand e-learning modules.

Q: Who are your Subject Matter Experts (SMEs)?

A: We select people that are current in industry with years of experience.  Furthermore, each of our SMEs actually knows how to teach adults.

Q: How current are your SMEs with topics?

A: LSTI does not employ retired industry personnel who are bored with golf and want to get back into industry.  Our instructors face the same challenges you do every day, and have solutions based on years of experience.

Q: Our problems are not typical.  Off the shelf training solutions won’t work.  Can you customize your training to my specific needs?

A: You bet.  In fact, we customize every enterprise or client-site course we do.  Weaving in your case studies, Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs), etc. is not only preferred, it is often critical to making the content relatable.  This is how we learn as adults.

Q: Will your SMEs work with our SMEs?

A: Again, this is encouraged and necessary.  We need to make sure the training content, flow, and objectives meet the many cultural and operational variables of your firm.  The only way we can accomplish this is through collaboration.

Q: Can I reuse the training we purchase?

A: We get this question a lot, and the answer is a resounding “yes!”  In fact, you own the material.  We are surprised that many companies don’t allow for reuse of materials without you having to pay some silly licensing fee.  Or, they deliver materials in binders that don’t allow you to copy them.  By the nature of our work-for-hire agreements, we are customizing and building a product for you that cannot be reused or resold because it wouldn’t work for anyone else.  We build your custom course, deliver all materials electronically, and you use it and/or change it for as long as you wish.

Q: Do you have licensing fees or customization fees?

A: As explained above, no.  For one competitive price, customization and continual use are included.  There are no hidden customization and/or licensing fees.

Q: Can I incorporate the training into my Learning Management System (LMS)?

A: The answer is “yes,” but it depends on the delivery vehicle.  LSTI offers ILT, live online, and on-demand e-module development and delivery.  Any curriculum can be delivered in a SCORM compliant package that you can plug and play on any LMS.  Depending on the delivery method, this could mean more involvement for our instructional design team.  Let us know your need, and we can handle it.

Q: Can you identify, qualify, and train our internal SMEs to teach (i.e., “Train-The-Trainer”)?

A: LSTI offers a full suite of services involving the identification, qualification, and training of internal trainers.  Our “Train-the-Trainer” programs have been proven successful and are available to any size organization and can involve your outsourced partners if need be.

Q: We have employees all over the world.  Do you offer your customized training globally?

A: Yes.  Every training option we offer is available to anyone at any point globally.  We have flown instructors all over the world and provided webinars at 3am EDT US for clients in Asia.  You name it, we can do it!
