Editor's Note

This week marks the end of an era, as Corporate Learning sign off
as editors for IT TrainingZone. They've done a fantastic job of
bringing all the latest news and updates to the site - and your
inbox - on a regular basis. Since it launched around a year
ago, IT TrainingZone has been busy bringing you regular updates
from the world of IT training, from new software releases and
certification routes for trainers to virus alerts and practices
affecting technology in the workplace.

We're taking the opportunity to give IT TrainingZone a spring-
clean and are looking for your views as to how you'd like to see
the Zone develop. Would you like to see more or fewer newswires?
More specialist discussions? More news? Let us know. We'll be
making some changes to the IT Trainer's Newswire over the coming
months - the first of which will be making it a monthly
publication with more in-depth opinion and content from the
community. Do let us know what you think over the coming weeks.

One exciting new development we have planned is the launch of a
new Professional Interest Group for IT Trainers. You can read
more about it below, or register your interest in getting
involved now by e-mailing us at mailto:[email protected]

Introducing...the IT TrainingZONE PIG!
No, we haven't moved into rearing animals - IT TrainingZONE is
soon to become the home of a brand new Professional Interest
Group, or PIG! If you're an IT trainer looking to network with
others and share tips, experience and know-how, we're planning a
new area just for you. The IT Trainers Professional Interest
Group (or PIG) will allow members interested in sharing their
views and experiences on the IT training industry, training
delivery methods, technology or the latest software. Find out

Don't waste your IT training budget! Learning is only effective
if it is reinforced after the training, otherwise the benefits
are lost. A study shows that after 2 days only 33 percent of the
knowledge remained and after 3 weeks, just 15 percent! Are you
wasting your money? Support your IT training better now with
