eLearning Company Offers Free Course to Get Middle Schoolers on Track

by MelanieB | on Mar 20, 2014

LearnKey Inc. is offering free online training to middle school students in an effort to reduce the nation’s high school dropout rate. Know Your Talents helps students understand and leverage their unique personality, behaviors and skills.

ST. GEORGE, UT, February 07, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ — Despite recent increases in the U.S. high school graduation rate, 11 percent of American high school students — more than 500,000 children — drop out each year. However, recent research has shown that the dropout rate can be dramatically reduced by intervening in children’s lives during middle school. Today, one of the nation’s premier eLearning companies is doing something about the problem, by offering a free online training course ($50 value) to Middle School students, teachers and counselors.

Know Your Talents, a self-paced video training course, can help young students to discover their unique talents and behaviors, and get them on the right track by returning passion and fun back into the learning experience.

“In our efforts to help students, we want to offer this easy-to-understand ‘self discovery’ program to help young people identify and appreciate their talents as early as possible,” says Lori Coruccini, a 25-year staffing industry veteran and author of Know Your Talents. “The more engaged a student is early on in middle school, the more likely that student will graduate from high school. LearnKey is offering this course at no charge to middle schoolers to underscore our commitment to improving education in America.”

“Vet to Tech” Program Helping U.S. Veterans Get Job Ready

by MelanieB | on Nov 12, 2013

Below is a blog that our sister company LearnKey’s CEO, Jeff Coruccini wrote.  It is so enlightening for so many of us at Predix who support this endeavor and know that our U.S. Veterans have the opportunity to further their education and advance in their careers!!

Just over two years ago I took over the role as CEO of LearnKey, Inc, a trusted educator for over 26 years. Our educational courseware has helped over a million students to acquire professional development education, career ready skills, and industry recognized IT certifications for career development, new job preparation and or advancement.

Looking back, one of the greatest experiences and most exciting things to see has been the creation of our LearnKey Veteran Services team – a three year old dedicated group of support and career counselors within the company who currently support over 100 U.S. veterans transitioning from the military who are ready to work in entry and advanced IT Technical Support positions. Most of these veterans started gaining IT experience in the service, and are now completing six to eight months of online education and achieving globally recognized IT certifications from CompTIA, Cisco, Microsoft, ISC², Mile2, and more. Most of them will have at least one (if not multiple) certifications in the coming weeks and they will be looking for employment opportunities.

We are not a recruiting company, and want no fee – just the opportunity to help these great job candidates, who served our country and are job ready, find rewarding IT career pathways in U.S. companies.

Help us find our returning veterans career paths – If you own, lead, or work for a company interested in interviewing these veterans and quality tech support candidates, please contact Brian Tremelling, LearnKey Veteran Services Program Manager (btremelling@learnkey.com) directly. Additionally, hiring veterans can allow employers to take advantage of tax incentives (when applicable) and many of the veterans who go through our program qualify.

Again, please join us in supporting our transitioning troops by interviewing one of our job ready veteran candidates for your IT support needs. There is no cost to tap into this network of talented individuals, only opportunity.

Lori Facilitates on Mentor Certification at PDP Conference

by Kim Gillcoatt | on Aug 02, 2013

Lori and I recently returned from the annual PDP Conference held in beautiful Colorado Springs, CO.  The conference, attended by PDP Representatives from all over the world, was a great week filled with education about new offerings from PDP (stay tuned for new sales focused materials and products!) and great learning from other experienced PDP Representatives, understanding how they are best integrating behavior and supporting their clients.

Lori had the opportunity to facilitate on Mentor Certification to all PDP Representatives in attendance.  Predix has worked hard to sell and promote the PDP Mentor Certification since its release in 2011.  We have seen our clients experience huge changes in the productivity and performance of their people when implementing the proven techniques learned in Mentor Certification.

Lori in action:

What is Mentor Certification?

The PDP Mentor Certification is an 8 hour facilitation for Managers who want to build mentoring skills to confidently move their people to high levels of performance and goal achievement.  Mentor Certification trains the Manager how to coach with the ProScan and stay in a process with the employee.  They learn how to hold employees accountable with action plans and learn how to remain in a coaching process with them.  The PDP Mentor Certification will lead to improved performance and motivation, clear communications, less conflict and increased productivity and individual satisfaction!
