Learning and Development Curriculum Design
We design learning activities that help corporations develop the skills, behaviors and competencies required to meet strategic business goals. Through internal training programs at DSS facilities and our work with numerous clients, we have developed a unique understanding of how to blend classroom study with practical on-the-job experiences that are most effective for a particular industry, worksite or job role.
