PTS Offers Personalized Epicor® Training On Demand to Meet Your Organization’s Unique Needs
Practical Technology Solutions offers both beginner and advanced Epicor® training for all modules. We recognize the importance of personalizing our ERP training courses for you and your employees. Our trainers will use your real-world business data to provide concrete examples and to let the trainees understand exactly how the software will operate within your company. We modify the trainings based on individual employees’ needs, so each role receives proper guidance. Our methods allow your employees to completely focus on the course.
Flexible, Convenient Epicor® ERP Training Options
You may choose between on-site or remote training. However, we strongly recommend on-site, face-to-face training to maximize the course materials absorption rate. Historically we’ve discovered that on-site training provides the optimal return on investment. Each Epicor® training course consists of in-person instruction and an online program with exercises, definitions and other helpful information to increase understanding. All trainees will receive the course by email one day prior to the presentation, giving them time to review the materials.
How Long Does Training Take?
The length of the training depends on the courses you choose. We have determined the appropriate time each course needs based on our years of experience, which you can find in our course list below. To prepare for training, we advise bringing all employees into a large, conference-style room with laptops for each attendee and space for the instructor’s projector. We encourage your employees to ask questions and we address any company-specific problems that may appear with the software.
“Train the Trainer” Programs Are Also Available
In situations where it may be more cost-effective for your organization, we offer a “Train the Trainer” approach. With this method of Epicor® training, our consultants will teach designated staff members, and these individuals then offer training to remaining employees.

** Please review this list and advise which subjects you envision would benefit your business. Once the subjects are known we will draft a proposed agenda and work with you to schedule them.
** Depending on the courses you desire, it is possible more than one subject matter expert from PTS could be involved – for instance any finance needs vs. non finance could possibly involve 2 consultants – one would travel in for the finance needs and depart and the non-finance needs would require another resource to travel in for those on your custom agenda. In rare cases PTS does have a single consultant who covers both finance and non-finance topics; but this is typically during a new installation or complicated upgrade. This can be defined further once you advise which topics are of interest to your organization.
