When Your Team Members Aren’t Comfortable Using The Tools In Front of Them, It’s Costing You Time, Money & Frustration!

… But besides the swear jar being full and people clocking off WAY later than they should, how can you tell if your staff are struggling to manage their tech?

If you answer ‘Yes!’ to ANY of these questions, you definitely need our help…

Is confusion over technology putting added
pressure on your staff?

They feel stressed, frustrated and as if their
workload is getting the better of them.

Is a lack of tech knowledge killing your team's
efficiency and productivity?

Employees seem to waste countless hours on
admin tasks that should be simple.

Have you spent THOUSANDS on software and hardware that employees can’t use?

They’d only just worked out the old system and you think you’ve wasted your money.

Are your clients feeling the effects of in-house tech issues?

If you can’t look after your own systems, you can’t deliver your best work externally.

Do your workers get demotivated when they can’t solve computer problems?

It’s like they’ve given up on producing their best work because of a tech barrier.

Are you experiencing a big resistance to IT among your team members?

Previous training sessions have been boring and difficult to understand.

With our training, your staff will work smarter, find more free time and feel confident,
supported and empowered. They’ll be able to immediately implement their learning to
boost efficiency and achieve performance targets …

You’re welcome!

At UTB We Deliver a New Standard of Professional Development Training That Delights, Motivates & Inspires … (and prevents computers being thrown out the window)

For Schools

We’re educators at heart, so professional development and training for education is something we’re really passionate about. Our training is available at an individual level or as school-wide PD initiatives – and we always tailor our approach to your staffing levels and unique focus areas.

From your front office staff and classroom teachers,
right the way through to the leadership of your school, everyone will be on the same page when it comes to using technology in a way that helps them do their jobs easily, effectively and to the best of their ability.

For Business

If your staff are struggling to master your internal systems it could be costing your company a lot of cash. Poor tech knowledge leads to substandard processes, unorganised information and poor customer service (not to mention lower profits).

We work with businesses of all shapes and sizes to connect with employees, increase efficiency, boost productivity and improve motivation. We help you invest in the development of your staff so they can improve their daily workflows and your bottom line.

Technical Training

Certifications deliver outcomes and achieve results for organisations and individuals. Our expert trainers will guide and prep organisations and individuals to take exams with confidence and earn their certification.

Getting certified means subject mastery, increased productivity, better performance, speedy troubleshooting and sound decisions.

Our flexible online training schedule means you can book yourself or your organisation in at a time that suits your timelines. Start training today.

Just Choose One of Our Three
Training Options To Get Started!

On Site Training

Our amazing team of trainers will touch
down at your preferred location to deliver
a technology class in the flesh. It’s a great
option for getting all of your staff together
in one place so they can all develop their
tech skills at the same time.

Online Live Training

Our online courses have been developed so anyone can expand their tech knowledge – anytime, anywhere. It follows the same process as the on site training, but attendees join live, virtual classes completely independently.

Learn On Demand Training

Guaranteed to hone your tech skills in meaningful, practical ways, Learn on Demand gives you unfettered access to over 40 prerecorded online courses, short and snappy UTB Shorts, Skills Checklist a swag of added bonuses.

Our Clients Say ‘We’ve Never Been
Taught Like This Before’... Because We Provide
Expert IT Training That’s Enjoyed, Not Endured!

We’ve all been there. Stuffy, boring tech training that leaves us sprawled over the desk begging for mercy. You end up distracted and disinterested – scrolling through old Facebook photos or online shopping for a pair of killer new shoes.

Let’s see if you can relate …

Here’s what a typical (a.k.a. boring!) training session looks like:

A stranger rocks up in a fancy shirt and stands at the front of the room with an overflowing slide deck full of cringe-worthy stock images. For hours on end, this monotone voice goes in one ear and out the other while everyone is doing their best not to fall asleep! Oh … and the person who organised the training is taken off your Christmas list.

It’s part of the reason why so many people don’t engage with technology training – and never fully understand how it can benefit them. It’s just dull!

We Make Tech Training Fun

Learning about technology shouldn’t send you to sleep! And we’ve seen far too many trainers who clearly don’t want to be there delivering programs that are outdated and irrelevant (they’d have a  hard time keeping their own mothers interested).

Our promise to you is that our sessions will be relevant and engaging and leave your staff wanting more (we even guarantee it!).

We Tailor To Your Needs

Whether you’re a small school with a handful of staff or a multinational organisation with thousands of employees, no two training situations are the same. That’s why we take the time to understand your specific targets and adapt accordingly. We never take a cookie-cutter approach to your development.

We Have Amazing Trainers

Seriously, they’re awesome (just ask them) – and endorsed at the highest level. Our trainers understand the process of delivering fun, useful training that gets you from where you are to where you want to be. And you’ll always get up-to-the-
minute solutions that work consistently – with
minimal resistance and frustration.

Our Clients Say ‘We’ve Never Been
Taught Like This Before’... Because We Provide
Expert IT Training That’s Enjoyed, Not Endured!

We’re fully-accredited coaches and professional learning specialists backed by
Microsoft, Google, Apple and more of the brightest minds in the technology industry. By working with these trusted partners, we can help you conquer your tech demons!

All This & More Is Why People Love
Training With Using Technology Better...

It really gets you thinking about ‘why’ you do what you do. Great to have time out from the classroom to experiment and have time to think and discuss different ideas.

Abbey Howard

Highlands Intermediate

Thank you Mike! I really found the 4 week course on ‘How to Motivate, Manage & Engage Your Students’ really interesting and great food for thought on how to improve my class routines and student engagement.

Kiki Tsoli

Banks Town Senior College

Mike, awesome course, fantastic resources and a real wake-up for someone who considers himself technically astute but not necessarily updated!

Shaun Hardy

Technological Teacher

I have been teaching for four years, and this was the best Professional Development course I have completed…even the students said
to me “you should do these things more often.”

Ailie Granger

Griffith High School

No fat, no rambling, just clean, concise explanations where needed. James was awesome.

Ethan Clews

Whangaparaoa College

I just wanted to say an extra big thank you for providing such a great service. Online, at night and in the comfort of home – with my two young children asleep in the other room – pretty awesome actually.

Leda McFadzean
