    Technical Programs Answers The Call!

    Providing timely, cost-effective technical training is always a challenge. Add to the mix implementing it into an aggressive IT project plan and hosting it remotely on a campus 300 miles away, all present extra challenges that need to be considered.

    Recently the SUNY Training Center faced such challenges when it received a request from Nassau Community College (NCC) for onsite technical training to train their staff on Oracle and SQR to prepare for their Banner implementation. Margaret Murad, Technical Program Manager at the SUNY TC, worked closely with Pat Battaglia, Banner Project Manager at NCC, to design a training plan suited to meet the needs of the IT staff as well as keep the cost within their budget. The courses are all filled and scheduled to run throughout the month of September.
