Effectiveness of Abra Training
Everyone who attended training rated it effective, with 58% rating it extremely effective (9 or 10 on a scale of 10). 89% rated training effectiveness at a 7 or higher on a scale of 10. As you return to your office after Abra training, you’re finding that training has measurably improved your job productivity. This corresponds with the in-class satisfaction surveys that we conduct at Abra training.
