Atomic Training logoFor nonprofits, libraries, and their constituents, training is essential to keep technology knowledge and skills up to date.

Whether your organization is training its staff and volunteers to use Windows 8 or FileMaker, or teaching others technical programs like Excel, the new Atomic Training Donation Program at TechSoup can help you get started.

Train on Over 150 Products

You can use Atomic Training to help your organization maximize its tech tools and software products. New staff members can learn the basics of the applications your organization uses, while more experienced users can increase their knowledge.

The training is available to both your staff AND your constituents. This makes Atomic Training ideal for:

  • General workforce development (the work that Goodwill does, for example)
  • Job training for at-risk youth, veterans re-entering the workforce, or even homeless or transitional populations
  • Building your social media presence with training on Twitter and Facebook
  • Learning to use Apple products like iPads and iPod Touch
  • Organizing software trainings for your library or public computer lab

Atomic Training is the resource that Best Buy's Geek Squad uses for their training.
