We call ourselves the ABACUS Training Company because we use simple, tried and tested methods that you can understand and use immediately.


Learning - Effectively

We all learn by linking something we know to the thing we don't know. Learning simply doesn't work if we are asked to link something we don't know, with the thing we don't know. Confused? Consider the following...

Do you know what an electrical resistor is?

Here's a definition from Wikipedia:

resistor is a passive two-terminal electrical component that implements electrical resistance as a circuit element. Resistors act to reduce current flow, and, at the same time, act to lower voltage levels within circuits.

Clear? Hardly!

But how about this...

Have you ever held a garden hose and felt how the pressure of water coming from the open end can be adjusted depending on how much you turn the tap or squeeze the hose itself? That change of pressure leads to a change in the flow of water.

Now imagine there is a small "lever" in the hose that regardless of changes to flow or pressure always guarantees the same amount of water comes out of the open end of the hose.

The "lever" in the hose, acts in the same way as a resistor acts in an electrical circuit, to guarantee a certain flow of electricity. 

Who understands better what a resistor is by the link to a hose than the Wiki definition? Far more people I'm sure.


Training Solutions 

All of our training solutions make sure people understand the concept, and how to apply it in the workplace.

Not just theory, but application  - that's the ABACUS Training Company way.
