Technical Support Training and Certification
The combination of providing resolution to technical problems while maintaining excellent customer service skills creates a unique challenge for today’s support professionals. Customer satisfaction derives from effective communication as much as from obtaining a technical solution. The Support Professional course addresses this challenge.
This 2-day course trains support professionals in the customer skills necessary to deliver quality services in today’s complex support environment. This support training program can provide the distinction that sets individuals and companies apart as the best in the technology support industry. The Support Professional course teaches practical skills in effective communication, telephone and online professionalism, questioning techniques, and teamwork, among others.
Post-class support training assistance is available through our “Making It Stick” management workshop to ensure transfer of skills to the job and to help measure return on investment.
