Upcoming Online Training

As you can see, from our extensive calendar of Training Events coming up, Smart Dolphins believes it is critical for businesses to empower their team to make the best use of today’s technology; training is the “last mile” of investment in our IT and our people.  

 You might also notice that all these events are provided to our community free of charge. THAT is how important we think this is. Sure, it is also a marketing exercise and an opportunity to add value to our client relationships, but you might also notice this is not a common practice in our industry.  

Technology training is purpose-driven for us. We hope you feel the same and will be at one of our events soon.
