And yet, planning an effective training can be very tricky. An important question you should ask yourself is, "what makes a good training venue?" Metro Offices, experts in office space solutions including training and conference rooms in Reston and the surrounding Metro DC area, suggests that you look for the following:
- Easily Accessible Location
There wouldn't be any training session if your attendees can't make it to the venue. Choose a place that can be easily reached by everyone participating. Ideally, a training venue should be accessible by bus, train and other modes of public and private transport.
- A Good Seating Plan
The venue should match the number of participants and the type of training you will have. Will the attendees be sitting down most of the time, or do you need plenty of room for movement? Choose a training room that has sufficient number of seats as well as suitable seating and table configurations.
- Wide Range of Available Technology
How do you plan to conduct the training? A good venue provides an array of training tools, from traditional/non-digital materials (such as whiteboard and flip charts) to more advanced options (including LCD projectors and video conferencing facilities). Your training will also benefit from fast and secure Internet connection as well as Polycom speaker phone systems.
- Readily Available Support Staff
Training is no job for one person. As much as possible, you should have a dedicated team on site to assist you. Some training facilities include the services of a support staff. They help you out by providing technical, administrative, or reception services on the day or days of the event.
