Royal Bank of Canada

"I was extremely pleased with the course and the hands-on activities.  Giacomo was very responsive to questions and demonstrated in-depth knowledge.  He was also very interested in ensuring he gave special attention to areas where we were looking for more clarity such as setting baselines and reporting.  Thank you!"

Atco Electric

"As part of ATCO Electric's EPM implementation, Avalon Training Group did a great job delivering training on the tool sets to the user by role. Prior to the training, Avalon spent time on-site reviewing our EPM solution to ensure course outlines and custom manuals were adapted to our business processes. Participants learned how to use the EPM environment setup at Atco Electric as opposed to a generic course. Training sessions were held at Atco Electric’s facility for Project Managers, Team Leads, Executives, Administrators, and Resource Managers."

Ministry of Natural Resources

"Patty Davidson was an integral part of evaluating and recommending process improvements to the existing implementation of EPM. She assisted in strategic decisions around the optimal EPM features that should be implemented to work in concert with other technology tools being implemented at the same time as part of an overall business transformation. Once the solution was formed, Patty conducted on-site training at multiple custom locations and provided remote administrator support."


"Avalon Training Group provided online EPM training for Administrators, on-site training for Project Managers and on-demand video training for Team Members. Prior to the training, Avalon provided a questionnaire and made the necessary site visits to ensure course outlines are adapted to internal business processes ensuring participants learn how to the EPM tools as intended for HBC’s reporting requirements.
