Free IT training offered to Christchurch businesses

22 Mar 2011

New Zealand-based e-learning company Intuto will offer free access to online business IT training to Christchurch businesses affected by the earthquake. 


Intuto says that the training modules are suitable for anyone needing to learn or upskill in critical computer and internet skills and develop competency in Microsoft business software.
 
Richard Warren, CEO of Intuto, said, "We understand computer literacy is not a core competency for every employee and with everyone pulling together to get businesses back on track in Canterbury, some staff will be required to undertake computer operations they’re not necessarily comfortable with.
 
"Given the disruption to their business, owners will need their operations running as smoothly and efficiently as possible and we are happy to be able to help provide the tools to support them.”


Intuto is also offering support to any affected language schools who have seen an increase in students with their Vital English online training.
 
Interested businesses, schools or individuals should call Intuto on 09 970 3270 for more information.
