Tailor training content and style to your specific needs

Our goal is to design a program that covers exactly what you want your employees to learn; so, we work closely with you to assess your needs, identify training topics and content, and determine the most effective training delivery methods. From lectures to lab sessions to video workshops, we can provide a custom mix of topics and approaches at your site, a convenient off-site location, or our Skokie facility. And whether we’re training a group as small as four people or a much larger one, we’re committed to providing alternatives that fit your objectives—and your budget.

Save time and money

With PCA custom programs, you can train more of your people for less by eliminating travel expenses, reducing costs-per-student, and minimizing the time employees spend away from the job. 

Ensure confidentiality and promote teamwork

Customized training gives your employees the opportunity to discuss sensitive company issues without being concerned about divulging information inappropriately. In addition, when employees train with their colleagues, it encourages an atmosphere of idea-sharing and support that carries over into the workplace.

"We've been doing customized courses which we develop with PCA since 1995. It's a higher level training than we do internally, PCA has knowledgeable presenters, and we have the convenience of doing it all in one place at PCA, and being able to use the PCA lab."
