Press release from the issuing company
Richardson, Texas, Dec 5, 2008 – Xplor Canada and acadami have released their 2009 Continuing Education schedule that includes 25 classes (and 35 class-room days) in major cities across Canada. The schedule also includes a 5-day Transaction Document Summer School at Niagara College.

All courses require students to pass a written examination to qualify for Xplor Continuing Education Units (CEUs). The courses also qualify for accelerated Education Points towards Electronic Document Professional certification.
Last year, Xplor Canada sponsored 9 acadami classes that awarded 87 Canadian Xplorers certificates of completion and a combined 104 CEUs.
Employers that have sent personnel on acadami training in 2008 include:
Credit Union Payments
Ontario Health Network
Print Operations Group
RR Donnelley BCS
Taylor – Demers
The courses focus on the concepts, technologies, and best practices associated with automated transaction document production. The material within these courses will train students on the business aspects, design requirements, and technical issues "from Data to Doorstep".
"The need for practical, current, and supplier-neutral education has never been greater," said William Broddy edp, Canadian Program Director for acadami. "In troubled times, investment in training delivers immediate cost savings.
Employers are telling us that trained personnel make fewer costly mistakes, find innovative cost-saving solutions, and require less supervision. In their minds, the cost of training is trivial compared to the cost of under-trained staff."
"This program adds major value to our membership. In addition to providing valuable training, it introduces a new generation of document specialists to the Xplor organization," said Paul Abdool edp, President of the Canadian Xplor Region. "Over 50 of this year's students had not been to an Xplor event before the course."
"The combination of field training through education partners like acadami, the Xplor Continuing Education program, the Electronic Document Professional certification program and the Xplor Document University in Tampa makes Xplor the focal point for transaction document professional development," says Skip Henk edp, President of Xplor International. "We look forward to supporting the expansion of the program in the United States and Europe."
