Hill Associates is internationally known in the field of telecommunications as a premier provider of training, executive consulting, and marketing services. Since 1982, we have demystified the complex world of telephony, information security, and data communications for some of the most recognized players in the industry, from LECs and telecommunications service providers to equipment manufacturers and Fortune-500 size companies. Today, we offer a broad array of courses and seminars to these and other clients, while also providing public training via the Web.
At Hill Associates, our clients are our partners. In addition to providing standard, "off-the-shelf" courses, we offer highly consultative program development services, which address each client's unique needs and challenges, providing as much or as little support as needed to plan, design, and implement an effective training program. We start with a needs assessment, establish goals and objectives to produce specific job skills, develop training programs to meet targeted goals (using any combination of our extensive content library, our client's content, and custom-developed content), and provide testing, program assessment, and participant feedback.
Why do business with Hill Associates? Because we are the best in the industry. We understand that a well-trained workforce with a solid foundation in technologies and their company's products and services will perform better, differentiate themselves, and be more successful against competition. Our clients choose Hill Associates for our unmatched combination of currency and depth of material, course design, technical expertise, and the dynamic and engaging learning environment our instructors present regardless of the delivery mode.
In today's economic environment, our clients require hard-hitting information that can impact the performance of their field teams quickly. Hill Associates can create materials and learning experiences that blend technology training essentials and your company’s specific product or service information. Working closely with a company’s product management, training, and marketing departments, Hill Associates can quickly and affordably craft a custom program for sales leadership, account managers, account executives, and sales engineers. Then we deliver the training in the most appropriate venue for the audience and circumstances: e-learning, classroom, or a combination of the two.
For executives charged with making critical strategic decisions, high-level managers looking to better understand the industry as a whole, or the enterprising telecommunications professional striving to be a leader in the industry, our leadership seminars and courses go beyond exploring the technologies and examine the strategic implications of recent developments and trends in the industry. Hill Associates leadership seminars provide today’s industry leaders with targeted knowledge that enables them to make sound decisions when investing in new technology, planning new product lines, designing marketing strategies, or positioning their company to survive and thrive in today’s marketplace.
Hill Associates provides training in a wide variety of delivery modes, including several e-learning products and several styles of classroom training. However, our specialty is applied technology training—we craft programs that meet the needs of a variety of audiences, from network engineers to operations, sales, and marketing specialists. We not only discuss the technology fundamental to the program but also apply it to the specific needs of the customer.
Hill Associates also designs and delivers hands-on workshops for network sales engineers, design engineers, and support engineers responsible for selling, designing, implementing, or supporting networks. The workshop courses enhance the learning experience by combining conceptual discussions about networks, hardware, software, and protocols with an essential hands-on experience.
The results of Hill Associates classroom training and workshops are measurable. Armed with a better understanding of the technologies they sell or work with, participants emerge from our programs better able to do their jobs. Let Hill Associates craft your solution.
