This course will teach you
Identify sources of indoor air pollution.
Develop specific strategies for reducing indoor air pollution
Reduce productivity problems resulting from airborne irritants,
toxins, and carcinogens.
Take simple steps to improve the air you breathe.
You need to breathe clean air. You don't need to be breathing in stuff that makes you sick and runs up your medical bills. If you agree with both statements, then the decision to buy this course is a no-brainer.
This looks really interesting but I can't figure out what you are sending or how you are sending it.
These are downloadable files. In other words, you get download instructions as soon as the buying part is done and you get the files right away.
What is it that I'm going to get and how? Is it a file that I’ll download? Is it mailed?
As soon as your purchase is complete, you will receive download instructions both on screen and via e-mail. You download self-extracting zip file that contains the course material. Depending on the course, the individual files will be in the rich text format or in the e-book format. Most materials are in the easier-to-handle rich text format.
Are we talking about a lot of pages for me to read?
Here's something that pleasantly surprises most people about these.
If you look at a typical $99 professional book, most of it is filler. These courses don't have the filler. Ditto for $995 seminars covering the same information. Our courses get right to the meat, saving you the effort of wading through pages of nonsense. We don't mass up the high overhead of generating the filler, and we pass the savings on to our customers.
Do your courses on project management prepare me for the various certification routes of the Project Management Institute?
No. The material does not focus on exam preparation. It focuses on improving your real-world skills. However, what you learn will not impede certification.
Are you one of the approved (by PMI) course providers?
No. We are not affiliated with the Project Management Institute, although we may consider going that direction. Our goal is not to make you spend a lot
of money learning how to answer test questions. Our goal is to teach you how to do your job better.
How long does each of your courses take?
It depends on the student. These courses are essentially white papers with exercises to help you relate the information to what you are doing now. You can read the material in each course in under an hour. But, how long it takes to digest it and apply it is up to you.
Do I have to buy books in addition to your course material? Will those books have to be bought from you?
To both questions, no. You don't have to buy anything else. Each course stands on its own.
What if your course material is not clear? Are your course writers available for clarification? Since it is not possible to read all material at one shot, and collect all questions at the same time, will the course writers be available as needed or on a one time basis?
a. It will be clear.
c. Your success is important. If you have a question that is germane to the material, and not a probe for free consulting services, we will help you understand the material. We have kept the prices low, because not everyone can afford $995 for a two-day seminar that amounts to little more than a book promo. This is not a book promo.
What if I have other questions?
We'll answer to whatever extent is reasonable. It may be possible that you will ask questions that require developing a new course--some aspect of successful project management we didn't cover and that is not part of the normal project management training regimen. In that case, you would get the new course for free.
Do you have other courses?
Yes, and we are developing more. You can always write to us with specific needs, and we will adjust our product development accordingly. Also, it's a good idea to check Mindconnection on a regular basis, just to see what is new.
Who writes these courses?
That depends on the subject. For example, Dr. Jay Prince wrote the behavior courses based on his experience as a licensed therapist.
All of the courses are well-researched and devoid of pseudoscience. Most are written by a subject matter expert. All are reviewed by a professional editor for clarity and succinctness.
Do your courses qualify for employer reimbursement?
Possibly not, because they are not accredited. Then again, our cost is very low. So, you must ask yourself if that small amount is worth investing into the skills you need to keep yourself employed and employable.
The goal here is not to pile up paper credits. The goal is to get the information you would ordinarily get only from a lifetime of working in project management--if even then. We save you "classroom time" in the "school of hard knocks." You will recover your investment (and then some), simply because you will be that much better at what you do.
How much time can I reasonably expect to save, once I use the principles in your time management course?
That depends on how you presently approach your work. The typical student can expect to increase productivity by 50%. If you look at the way most people do their work, and then work your way through the course, you'll see why this is so. The author of that course works three full-time jobs and is Chair for one non-profit and acting Chair for another. Yet, he manages to excel in all of these roles while still maintaining outstanding health and enjoyment of life.
While pollutant levels from individual sources may not pose a significant
health risk by themselves, most homes and offices have multiple sources of indoor air pollution.
Many who’ve studied indoor air pollution believe the cumulative effects of these sources are very real and very costly. And they have reams of case histories to support their views.
Fortunately, most people can reduce the risk from existing sources and prevent new problems from occurring. This paper, based on documentation from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), will help you decide what actions to take to reduce the level of indoor air pollution in your home and office.
With this bitter winter, we're practically shut-ins. This course has a lot of helpful information and guidance. What I didn't find was a listing of air purifiers and other equipment. It covers prevention very well, and seems geared toward zero cost things you can do. But what if you want to spend some money on equipment like HEPA filters? Apparently, they feel you won't need to buy anything if you do everything they say. That may be true in most cases, but I still think that equipment guide information should have been in there.
Reduced asthma problems, could help more, 10.12.2009
Reviewer: Robert Thompson (Bakersfield, CA)
Putting a few of these tips to work brought about a noticeable reduction in my son's asthma symptoms. On the downside, this course seems to hit only 80% of the problems with indoor air. What about the other 20%? We still get dust on our cofee table, how do we stop that?
