The CLN Training Department mission is to provide
timely and accurate information about Amtech software products to clients.
Information may take the form of manuals, workbooks, on-line help, classroom
training, web-based testing, and web-based learning objects.
The CLN Training Department provides hands-on training
by experienced instructors, delivered through the Internet or video
Training courses are modular and tailored to job specific
functions. Training courses consider the amount of training needed,
the participantís needs, and the needs of managers and others that must
support Creative Learning.
The person(s) attending training sessions
will be supplied an workbook by AMTECH. Before class, the student must
download these from the web-site.

Q. What does it mean to "audit" a class?

As an auditor, you will not receive credit towards certification, but will receive the additional training you desire.
