Hansen Training Systems, Inc.



Courses Developed

Hansen Training Systems has developed over 300 courses during its 40-year history. The exact number varies depending on how you count products. In most cases, we developed a course from scratch and then updated it many times to reflect new releases of the software that it covers. Often, the update added new course components, such as computer-based exercises or a complete audio track. As a result, the actual number, in terms of output, is probably closer to 500. Not listed are magazine and journal articles, classes and seminars delivered, and presentations to user groups.

For Deltak, Inc.

Before founding HTS in 1980, Dr. William Hansen worked for Deltak, Inc., one of the first companies to sell multimedia courses that enabled organizations to train their own IT personnel. He started as a free-lance author, but ended his career with Deltak holding two positions, manager of quality assurance (a job he created) and product manager for operating system courses. The following list of his Deltak courses is included for completeness. Each Deltak series contained 4 to 12 courses, each 4 to 6 hours long.

A typical SRA course contains a 150- to 200-page Text, a 100- to 150-page Personal Reference Guide, a 15-minute videotape, and one or more diskettes containing interactive exercises. Newer courses replace the text and video components with computer-based training.

The interactive exercises developed by HTS are designed to simulate on-the-job situations. In the COBOL courses, for example, the student is given a working program that needs to be modified. The exercises simulate a text editor, prompting the student to code complete COBOL statements in a realistic situation. Similarly, the exercises in the VM/CMS series simulate a typical VM/CMS environment.

For Manta Technologies Inc.

A typical Manta course is a two-hour collection of CBT sessions. Although each course runs in any common browser, all exercises and case study problems accurately simulate the IBM i environment.

Be aware that the names of the Manta courses have changed often as IBM changed the name of the hardware from "AS/400" to "iSeries" to "System i" to "Power Systems" and the name of the operating system from "OS/400" to "i5/OS" to "IBM i."
