Help and Overview
In order to streamline and improve the efficiency of Toyota Motor North America's (TMNA) computer-related training while simultaneously reducing costs, TMNA IS has implemented a common method for acquiring computer software training.
TMNA IS has established a relationship with Computer Training Solutions, Inc. (CTS) to play a coordinative role and to be the central contact in the acquisition of software training. Computer Training Solutions, Inc., has provided software training to several Toyota manufacturing locations for over 20 years and has provided excellent service.
CTS will coordinate all individual and group computer training for TMNA IS. The types of software included under this agreement include desktop application software such as Microsoft Word, Excel, Access etc. and also technical software such as CAD, Inventor, MS SQL Server, Oracle and more. CTS is responsible for selecting a variety of computer training providers within a provider pool as well as overseeing negotiations, scheduling and training logistics with those providers. CTS will be our "One-Stop" window for our computer related training needs.
This service is provided to all TMNA supported sites and includes a simplified procedure to procure training. Prepayment will be made by CTS and charged back internally to the specified cost center.
If you have experienced outstanding service or training from any particular provider, this information should be forwarded to CTS. CTS will then coordinate with this provider in offering training services to TMNA.
