We want to update you on recent modifications to the MimioTraining™ programs that we are instituting as part of the recent changes at Mimio.
Customer Training Sessions
Going forward, all customer training sessions will be handled directly by you, our Reseller Partners, with the help of our Mimio expert trainers: Lisa Williams, Caroline Haefling, and Tracy Caulder. Our trainers are no longer working directly for Mimio, but are available as training consultants to handle Mimio training sessions for you on a direct basis. Mimio will no longer act as a go-between; we believe this will simplify the process, the pricing, and the value to both our Partners and our customers. Please feel free to reach out to your Mimio Territory Manager if you have any questions about our new program. You may contact Lisa, Caroline, or Tracy directly to request their assistance with customer training. Their contact details are listed below:
We are creating a list of additional Mimio Certified trainers who are localized; you will be able to use them as resources in the future. We will be in touch with this information in the next few weeks.
Mimio Training Materials
We will be making available the printed, color Core Workbooks to you at our cost price for purchase on the E-Store. The cost of these will be $10 each. We would encourage you to order these for use with your customers. The Intermediate Workbook is almost complete – we are just finalizing it now with some information about the new software. We will commit to keeping these two workbooks in print for you if enough copies are purchased by you from the E-Store. Additionally, we will provide you with electronic versions of our materials and Ink files to meet your training needs. All of these materials will be updated with new product information on a timely basis.
Training Certification for Partners
Over this past year we have been working with you on a new training certification program for Mimio trainers within your organizations. This program will also be simplified going forward. We will be posting on this blog an update with details about this certification program in the next few weeks; for now we want you to know that we are going to streamline the program to better meet your needs.
We will continue to provide you with the best support possible within our new company structure, and to make certain that all Mimio trainers have the most up-to-date, accurate, and effective training materials for our products.
Quick Learn Webinars and Other Resources
We are now encouraging educators who are interested in learning more about Mimio products to participate in our MimioTraining Quick Learn program, available in a live webinar format or as on-demand webinars. Mimio will continue to offer its on-demand video tutorials and its training reference guides. More information can be found on our website. Our valuable teacher community, mimioconnect.com, will continue to provide a forum for instructional resources at no cost, aligned to state and Common Core standards.
Please let us know if you have any questions. And please feel free to reach out to your Mimio Territory Manager to discuss this new plan.
