in-house training


Customised Financial Training Services

Training service providers mostly provide training programs which are general and not focused on the specific requirements of the business.  AABS’s approach to training is to firstly understand your business environment and its operations. We then customize the training, based on gaps identified, to focus on the specific areas which will add the most value to the business.

Benefits to be derived by employers

  • Tangible payoffs in terms of workplace productivity improvement from their employees - the training content is practical and customised to be relevant to tasks performed by staff. 
  • Value for money – offers a better return per training dollar spent compared to other available training courses which offer general unfocused training 
  • Training time savings – because the course is focused on only the specific areas employees need to be familiar with, employees will be back on the job faster compared to if a general training program was done   
  • Greater training flexibility – can be done in-house or at external venue.  Can be done as a one day programme or two half day programmes on week days or weekends to the convenience of the employer and employees
