This three-day Basic Business Management: Boot Camp courseware program includes everything a trainer needs to get new business owners started on the road to success.
With sessions on inventory management, human resources, finance and accounting, marketing, sales, and even using social networking, students will be prepared to manage their new business. In addition, your students will learn about different business structures, who is managing and who is leading, how to create a brand, and the value of a strategic plan.
Training materials that trainers love include a detailed instructor’s guide, training tips, activities, assessments, student guide, PowerPoint slides, and more. If your learners are looking for blended learning that they can access on their mobile devices, Velsoft courseware has that too!

Each courseware title is a trainers' kit that comes with the following course components:
Velsoft Instructor Guides are the core of each training course. Our Instructor Guides lay out the training in simple, easy-to-follow instructions. You can also customize the Instructor Guides in order to personalize your training.
Each Instructor Guide - for each course - is paired with a Student Manual that you can present to your participants. This customizable Student Manual gives each participant the ?student? version of the course you will be teaching.
Velsoft offers an Exercise Workbook (also customizable) that is specific to the course you are offering. You can choose whether this is something you would like to present to your students.
Pre-made Sample Exercise Files are provided for use with the Lab Workbook so that you, as the trainer, do not have to prepare activity working files.
Courseware from Velsoft is designed to give you everything you need for use in the classroom or for your workshop. This includes the PowerPoint versions of all the courses, prepared for you in advance.
