Training Time

Now it is time to learn everything you need to know!

Believe it or not, this is the hardest time for most.  Being gave a schedule for training is never easy for some because you don’t have any control over it.  Your breaks are never really at a certain time and you have to get use to having lunch at different times.  Some don’t make it past day 3 or 4 because of these things.  This is why I am going to help you get prepared for what is to come. 

Now that you are past the paperwork phase it is time to get serious.  What ever day and time that they gave you for training, you have to now get ready for it.  If you have anything that is scheduled that will conflict with training, it is time so re schedule it.  It is time for you to make sure that you have all of you equipment in order.  Make sure that your internet is running the way it should. Also start thinking about what you will have for lunch and breaks.  Side note: if you have kids, make sure you have a plan for them to make things easier for you and them.

You want to make sure that you have of your equipment connected (if it was sent to you).  Usually there will be some sort of orientation to help you get things in order at least a week before.  Make sure you have made that grocery store run so that you won’t be wondering what you are going to eat for snacks and lunch. 

On the first day, you want to make sure that you get up at least an hour or two before class starts.  Make sure that when things get started, make sure you put your phone on silent.  The worst thing that you can do on the first day is not to pay attention.  Beside, this may be your first day but most of the time it is really interactive.  Most trainers like to play the “I want to get to know everyone” game because things are so all over the place behind the scenes.  They are trying to deal with people that are not there, send out emails, and trying to make sure everything is just running smooth. 

During training you want to make sure that you are focused.  You want to make sure that you are listening at all times.  Training is the best time for you to make a great impression.  Don’t shy away from answering questions or speaking up.  You don’t have to worried about being singled out of you just step up!  Also, if there is something that you don’t understand, please SPEAK UP! Now is your time to speak up. 

Nesting is when you get to actually start working but you will be “monitored” and you have people that are there for you.  You can think of it like “holding your hand and helping you when needed”.  This is normally about a week long and then you go into production right after.

It all depends, but most of the time this may be totally different that your training schedule.  So during your interview you should have spoke to the recruiter about your production schedule. 

IT’S GO TIME!  This is the time you take everything that you were taught and get to work.
