Get the professional training that’s right for your business
At Wintec, we’re experts in providing customised training solutions to meet the needs of industry. We’re here to help you take your business to the next level by ensuring your staff have the skills and knowledge they need to be successful.
How it works
One of our business development consultants meets with you to discuss your business goals and opportunities; helping to identify staff capability gaps, and where you’d like to take the business. We then work with you to design a training solution that meets your business needs.
Some of the options we have recommended in the past include taking one or several of our existing short courses and adapting the content to match your specific needs. Examples of courses we have tailored in the past include:
- Mental Health First Aid
- Child Protection Workshop
- Communication Strategies
- Customer Service Training: Critical Elements
- Design Thinking Taster
- Interpersonal Conflict
- Selling Smarter
- Strategies for Workplace Relationships
We can also completely customise a training solution to meet your needs. Some examples include creating an induction programme for new staff, and developing financial services training to match a new business process.
What you can expect
All of our training programmes are facilitated by industry experts, who have up-to-date knowledge and experience. And we can deliver training anywhere in New Zealand, during or after work hours.
You'll also get:
- Content tailored to you, delivered in a way that works for you, all at a time and location you choose
- Respect for and sensitivity to your workplace culture and the learning needs of your team
- Fresh ideas for the business, new approaches to tackling familiar problems, and new business opportunities
- A stronger, more connected team that enjoys working together
When your career depends on sound compliance qualifications, you want your training to come from a trusted source.
Wintec facilitators are among the most experienced and best in the business. We’re accredited by all the leading industry and government bodies in which we offer training, and our relationships with those bodies are exceptionally strong. That’s partly due to our relationships with industry. We work closely not just with regulatory bodies, but also with companies that provide the services for which we train you. That means we understand both the compliance requirements, and also the needs of the businesses required to meet those standards.
Courses are offered throughout the year. In many cases, we also offer the option of evening training spread across a few weeks or block courses which run between 2-5 days. You choose the timing that suits you.If your workplace has specific policies and procedures that are in addition to standard compliance requirements, we can tailor a course for you.
