Interactive Web-based training courses have been launched by Hamilton-based ISP Wave Internet.
The 420 self-paced courses are delivered through the Internet via a Web browser. The courses are available to anyone, not just Wave ISP customers.
Training covers major subject modules such as end-user desktop computing, home and small business, business skills development, technical MCSE (Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer) approved study guides, Web development and general technical subjects, with up to 126 courses in each subject area.
Most of the Microsoft courses have either the Microsoft Approved Study Guide logo or the Approved Courseware User Certification logo. Many technical courses carry the MCSE accreditation and several end-user courses are MOUS accredited.
Training costs are $119 (excluding GST) a year per user ID for end-user courses and $235 (excluding GST) per year per user ID for technical courses.
Wave says the courses form part of the company's expansion programme, which has just seen the national roll-out of its toll free ISP service.
The expansion follows the recent take-over of Wave's parent company Computer Systems Engineering, now known as PavTech New Zealand, following its recent takeover by Texas-based Pavilion Technology.
