Here's a question from 1992: How do I get 1200 people in the US, Canada, and Mexico up and running with PCs and MS Office from a previous dumb terminal environment? (More inside of course)

You can't send them to web-based training until they understand point-and-click. In my mind there's a national organization I can buy classroom passes from, and include the classes as part of the rollout at the 36 sites. Then there would be an element of customized, hands-on follow up training back in the workplace. Once they get comfortable with the basic concepts of Word, Outlook, and the like, I'd send them to web training.
The key for me is that this organization is so ubiquitous that they'd have something near most of our sites, and that I don't have to deal with 10 different vendors.
I'm sure these businesses existed everywhere ten years ago, but I need it now. Please help me help my company join the 21st century.
