AEE In-House Seminar Programs Most of the live seminar programs described in this catalog can also be arranged to be instructed on an in-house basis at your facility. Simply call the number below for further information or to arrange a program for your organization. ADVANTAGES OF IN-HOUSE TRAINING Most companies realize the importance of keeping key personnel up to speed on the latest developments in the energy field which impact their decisions. However, having an entire team exposed to the same body of instruction at the same time has the added benefit of motivating everyone to work together to accomplish specific goals. In-house programs have a proven track record of promoting cooperation, involvement, and results-oriented attitudes. In addition, by having a seminar conducted in-house, you can work with the course instructor to assure greatest emphasis on those areas most relevant to your operations and goals. Questions can often be answered in greater detail than is possible in a seminar whose participants come from many companies.

COST ADVANTAGE You can train up to 20 members of your staff for one flat fee (or a specified fee for each additional student up to 65) — AND you won’t have to pay your employees’ travel costs, nor lose their valuable work time before and after the seminar. The following fee schedule is applicable for most programs: NUMBER OF TWO-DAY SEMINAR PROGRAM ATTENDEES PROGRAM
