As a pioneer in her field, Myra Herman turned her love of teaching children to working with adults in 1990 when she saw a clear need and definite lack of computer software training. She found people were really struggling with the conversion from manual typewriters to electronic media and were expected to do the same amount of work with the new systems as they had with typewriters, so she and her husband struck out in 1991 with Softeach Training. In addition to having a location in the Saskatoon downtown area, they provided training from a variety of locations including everything from country elevators to community learning centres, going wherever the need existed. After Softeach was sold: she offered her contracted services to MicroAge Computer Training where she was their principal trainer for 10 Years. She has taught a wide range of companies and individuals who value her training skills. In addition to training, she has also offered her services as a consultant for Access Database development, Excel Templates and troubleshooting problems for clients who needed her expertise with software.
Although the focus over the years has changed from WordPerfect and Lotus to Microsoft Office applications, web design, programming and publishing, Myra has always more than kept ahead of demand. As a Microsoft Master Instructor in two Office suites, Myra was invited to join the Microsoft IC3 Curriculum Development team which developed the online training that is offered by Microsoft today.
She continued her service to Saskatoon and area with the evolution of her company, establishing the MJH Computer Training Centre in 2007, as the natural step to an extremely rewarding career. She brings her usual abundance of skill, experience and commitment to this as she has to every project she has been involved with. She offers a wide range of 1 and 2 day computer workshops. She continues to service her clients by specially designed customized classes or with traditional classes using the most up to date reference materials available. Having something to offer the novice as well as the professional and everyone in between, she presents her knowledge with the uncanny skill of putting everyone at ease and wanting more! Her wide knowledge of industry needs helps keep the information and learning pertinent for her participants.
She has the philosophy that she will not train an Applications that she doesn't use herself in her Consulting. She has a depth of knowledge that allows her to train all of the Applications that is offered by her company. She has been training staff since DOS 3.1, WordPerfect 5.1 and Lotus 2.2 were the choices. She has trained staff on all Versions of Windows from 3.0 to 10 and all Microsoft Office Applications from 2.0 to 2016.
During the past few years, she has taken on the additional challenge of helping people who have to be re-trained because of work place injuries. She has also branched out by offering shorter customised classes and webinars on specific topics of Microsoft Applications.
Myra Herman continues to be a "go to" trusted trainer for many corporations and small businesses in the Saskatoon and surrounding area.
