Quality Control

Participants in our programs complete a comprehensive needs assessment before the curriculum is customized to their individual needs. The customization process ensures that the needs of our clients are met, and so that they receive the maximum benefits of our intercultural training. Using the information from the needs assessment, we are able to appropriately match customers to trainers who perfectly fit their requirements.

Once the selected trainer has been secured, a confirmation is sent to the trainee outlining scheduling details and contact information of the trainer. Once training is complete, customers are asked to provide feedback through a brief evaluation. This final step supports our efforts in ensuring that we continue to deliver the highest level of customer service and superior course content.
