Dragon Complete Training
3 two-hour training sessions, conducted on-site (in the Vancouver, BC region) or remotely across Canada, with a suggested 1 week between appointments 1 & 2, and 2-3 weeks between appointments 2 & 3.
Sufficient practice time between each appointment is vital to achieving the most out of the training sessions. Please ensure such practice time is possible when booking appointments.
Complete Training in the use of speech recognition teaches effective use of speech recognition software for your specific purpose (i.e. EMR, email, drafting etc.).
We skip content and sections that are irrelevant to you, focusing on your needs with the goal of seeing you operational with Dragon ASAP.
You will be able to use Dragon after the first training session, and are, in fact, encouraged to use Dragon as much as possible; however, there will be a slight lack of efficiency and accuracy until all three sessions have been completed.
After three sessions, you should find yourself reasonably independent and knowledgeable.
One month after the final training session you should feel well on your way with using Dragon efficiently.
Throughout All Sessions
- Integration techniques with your most used applications (i.e. EMRs, legal applications, MS Office etc.)
- Addressing your most immediate goals and answering specific questions (particularly those accumulated after the first and second training sessions)
