EventsAIR has rolled out its Fast Track training programme, said to be the meetings industry’s most comprehensive learning platform which is aimed at rapidly educating and certifying planners in the latest event management tools and technology.
The learning content includes education on cyber security, PCI (payment card industry) compliance, data privacy, data quality control as well as an end-to-end use of technology to manage a meeting.
‚ÄúOur clients tell us that as their business grows, and they onboard new staff, they want a fast and consistent way to train staff. We took this challenge and our team created an extremely comprehensive curriculum and online training platform,‚ÄĚ said EventsAIR CEO Trevor Gardiner.
Fast Track comprises three stages. The first stage is designed to get new team members up to speed with event technology and best practices. Videos and exercises in a sandbox event are offered across nine topics.
After completing a detailed exam and receiving their Meeting Planner Certification, participants can proceed to second stage where detailed online training is conducted on topics such as abstract management and building attendee apps.
A highlight of the programme ‚Äď and said to be the first in the industry ‚Äď is a certification that enables internal trainers within event management organisations to get the skills, resources and accreditation to deliver the comprehensive training programme internally.
‚ÄúOur goal is to empower our customers, and the Training Certification component of Fast Track provides an excellent structure to assist our customers onboard their own staff,‚ÄĚ said Gardiner.
‚ÄúWe have gone beyond technology and have included content like the importance of data quality, planning in relation to the use of technology and various security issues ‚Äď all highly relevant to the meetings industry.‚ÄĚ
Alec Sonenthal, director of education for EventsAIR, said: “I have been providing education in the meetings industry for over 30 years, and the Fast Track programme represents the most comprehensive learning system I have ever seen.”
Fast Track, Meeting Planner Certification and Trainer Certification are available at no charge for all EventsAIR customers.
EventsAIR is also offering the programme for free in universities and colleges with MICE courses.
Gardiner said: ‚ÄúThis helps students better prepare for their real-world career and also exposes them to current issues such as data privacy and cyber security.‚ÄĚ
