UB Human Resources' Organizational Development & Training unit is partnering with New Horizons at Logical Operations, a software training provider located in Amherst, NY, to offer software training classes to UB employees at a discounted rate.

HR Software Training Coming to an End

Earlier this year, UB Organizational Development & Training (OD&T) announced that instructor-led software training classes for employees would be ending in March 2019 due to a shift in OD&T's focus and change in services.

Partnership with New Horizons at Logical Operations

OD&T has established a partnership with New Horizons at Logical Operations, a local company that offers in-person and online software training on a myriad of topics including Microsoft Office and Adobe products. UB employees will receive a 15% discount on all classes offered by using a special promo code. In-person classes are located conveniently close to UB's North Campus on Northpointe Parkway in Amherst.

New Horizons at Logical Operations classes come with a number of benefits, including:

  • 1 free re-take per enrollment
  • Post class support (available with most classes), including access to the following tools and resources to reinforce learning from class:
    • eBook: A digital copy of the textbook that is updated for life.
    • LearnTOs: Short 3-5 minute video tutorials reinforcing and expanding on key concepts within the course. These are provided as reference material both before and after class. 
    • Checklists: Quick reference material and procedure references in an easy-to-find format.
    • CHOICE Mobile Apps: The mobile app is available on iPad and iPhone (exclusively for iOS6 and iOS7) and Android phones.
  • For virtual classes, 6 month access to a class recording

Additional Software Training Resources

In addition to information about the New Horizons partnership, OD&T's updated software training webpage now contains information about other software training resources available for UB employees including:

  • Microsoft's Online Training Center
  • UB Libraries Software Workshops
  • Access to Lynda.com/LinkedIn Learning through the New York Public Library
