It's Tool Time!

We are excited to invite you to sign up for our February Training Curve  SIG meeting, we are calling Tool Time!

Remember the popular TV comedy SITCOM “Home Improvement” about Tim Taylor’s home improvement show called Tool Time and a plethora of misadventures?  Tim could always rely on his trusted neighbor and friend,“Wilson” to get him out of any jam with his sage “over the fence” advice.

Our February Training Curve SIG, Tool Time will be offering you, your very own sage, neighborly advisors to help guide you through the trickiest training challenges.  We are honored to have experienced guest trainers: Nickie Hyde and Leigh Mires (See speaker tab).

This event offers a platform for you to customize the content of this meeting and glean from their extensive expertise by emailing your specific training challenges and questions before the meeting to sigs@austinastd.org or you may choose to arrive early and write them out on a “3x5 cards” so start collecting those questions now!  Our ”Wilsons” will answer as many questions as possible during our meeting time.

We are continuing to develop trainer skills and knowledge, expanding contents of the yellow & black Trainer’s toolbox introduced at the first Training Curve SIG back in September 2011. Take advantage of this awesome opportunity to acquire more “power tools.”  Seating is limited & fills up quickly. Be sure to register early to ensure your seat!
