Value Proposition
Designed and delivered by SAS® experts; a custom event provides a cost-effective and flexible way of educating your staff. Custom events can be tailored to your requirements and be held either at your premises or one of our education centres.

Service Description
A custom event can take the form of a bespoke course, workshop or seminar. All can combine lectures, software demonstrations, hands-on computer workshops, course notes and, if required, room set-up.

A custom event can be held at your premises, at one of our education centres in Marlow, London, Manchester, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Dublin, or in a third-party's location. All of our centres are equipped with the latest technology, and provide refreshments and quality catering. Prior to a custom event, one of our consultants will undertake a learning needs assessment if appropriate.

Each custom event is taught by a SAS and Learning and Performance Institute (LPI) accredited technical and education expert. Topics can be tailored to your requirements or we can run a standard course just for your staff. After the event, one of our consultants will conduct a post-event evaluation. In 2004, SAS Education was awarded the coveted LPI Gold Standard award which it still holds in 2012.
