Teaching Agvance to New Employees
11 Dec 2023
As staff are added to a growing business, there is a need to get new hires up-to-speed quickly with the technological knowledge necessary to do their job. Coworkers or supervisors often step in to transfer that knowledge. The one-on-one training is a valuable opportunity to build rapport with a new employee and teach them the intricacies of your specific location. Yet, training a new employee takes time.
Businesses using Agvance can turn to Agvance University for supplemental training courses that can be completed as time allows. Utilizing the available Agvance University and Agvance Help Center resources also helps to ensure processes are taught completely and accurately. Eager new hires will not only learn the basics but may also pick up additional ways to use Agvance to build efficiency into business processes.
Free eLearning Courses
Over twenty eLearning lessons are available to help both new and experienced users looking to improve their Agvance skills. These lessons can be completed on-demand and are self-paced. Each course explains concepts and includes questions to ensure the learner understands the information. Most courses take 20 minutes or less to complete.
“The most accessed features are the eLearning courses geared toward new users. We have made a couple of changes and additions to accommodate this group,” says Angie Hamm, SSI User Resources Manager. The eLearning library has been organized into tabs with courses grouped by topics. Hamm suggests that new hires will find success starting with the courses found under the Getting Started with Agvance tab.
Other categories of eLearning courses include Agronomy, Back Office, Seed, and SKY. The user may pick topics that pertain to their job. Lessons can be completed in any order at any time. There is no cost for Agvance eLearning courses, and each course can be referred to as often as needed.
With the popularity of these courses, Hamm says that courses will continue to be updated and added. She welcomes ideas for new courses, too. Suggestions can be submitted by completing the feedback form at the end of any course.
