Developing your staff?

Good people are hard to find - and even harder to keep. It's difficult to find the talent you need and once you have them you want to keep them. As an HR manager or department head you know the importance and value of continually investing in building the skills of your employees. In many cases corporate training programs are a major factor for employees in choosing to stay with their current employers. Still, investing in seminars and training can be expensive, and sometimes, as an HR manager or department head, you find yourself fighting to hold onto, or increase, your development budget.

Last Minute Training can help you to invest in building the skills of your employees. Using our service helps you save time finding top quality training and also helps you stretch your limited training budget.

Saving you money is our specialty.

Last Minute Training is a unique free service that allows you to purchase registrations to seminars at 30% - 60% off the regular price. We do this by negotiating special 'last minute' prices for seminars that we pass directly on to our members. There is one 'catch' though - these are 'last minute' prices and in order to take advantage of them you need to be flexible enough to attend a seminar within 10 days or less of registering. And that is the ONLY 'catch'.

Need to stretch your corporate development budget?

Last Minute Training tries to negotiate the lowest possible price for our seminar deals giving you the opportunity to purchase more training for less money. Our vendors know that sometimes even those prices exceed your remaining development budget. That's why Last Minute Training has our unique "Make an Offer" system. With this system you can offer to pay the price that is in line with your remaining budget for any listed seminar. Use our comment box on the offer page to explain to the seminar provider why you think they should accept your offer. Whether or not your offer is accepted is up to them, but you'd be surprised at how reasonable they can be -- especially when dealing with corporate clients.

Knowing when the seminars you need are available is easier than you think.

With Last Minute Training there are two ways to find seminars. The first is by visiting our website and searching by keyword or category to see what seminars are available. The second, and much more effective, method is to set up your free account and create "training alerts". With over 800 categories to choose from, it is easy to specify exactly what kinds of seminars you are interested in. Once you set an alert we'll tell you immediately by email when a seminar becomes available. In addition ,you can create alerts specific to individual employees so managing the training needs of 20 is as easy as managing one! Once you set your alerts you can focus on your day to day activities and wait for us to find a seminar for you. There is no charge to you for this service.

There are so many seminar providers out there.

Choosing a top quality seminar is made easier with Last Minute Training's feedback system. Our members leave feedback after they have attended a seminar. That gives you a peer qualified 'quality score' that cannot be influenced by the training seminar provider. You can rest assured that if our members have scored a seminar highly, the quality will be as well

Sign Up Now!

Even if you have no immediate training needs, by signing up and setting alerts our team can work on negotiating the best deals for the seminars you will want available in the future. Setting up an alert is not an offer to purchase it is simply a request to be notified of seminar offers that fit your needs. It takes less than 5 minutes and will save you hours of time searching.
