How to select a Computer Classroom Rental vendor

By: Oliviacain
Price should not be the only consideration in renting a computer classroom, there are a lot of other factors you should consider when choosing to rent a computer classroom.

First there is the obvious question: do the specs of the computers meet the technical needs of the training? You will want to check that the CPU speed, the memory, and the size of the hard drives are sufficient. You will also want to make sure that the type and size of the monitors meet your needs.

Next you need to find out if technical support is included. Is there a dedicated technical expert support person on site who will have the expertise to install and support the software your students will be using? Be sure that the technical support person will be available the entire time that the classroom is being utilized in order to handle any problems that might (and will) occur. Murphy's law applies here!

It is very important to check the physical characteristics of the classroom. Is it large enough so that each student has adequate space for monitors, manuals and workbooks - plus room to take notes? Is the projector is of high quality and bright enough for the students to see without turning out all the lights? Also, are there whiteboards, flip charts, markers and other media for your instructor to use.

Often overlooked is the aspect of heating and air conditioning. You don't want your students to be freezing or overheated. The ideal configuration is for the classroom to have its own controls so that heat and air conditioning can be adjusted accordingly for the comfort of students present.

Be sure to check on other amenities that you want for your students. Are beverage and snacks included? If not, is there a per person charge for catering? Is there a break room available to the students? Can lunch be brought in? If people are traveling, how close is the nearest hotel? Is the hotel walking distance or is other transportation needed? Is there a negotiated rate with the hotel for your students?

A final consideration is the building itself. Is the location centrally located and easy to find? Is the building modern and attractive. Do the classrooms have windows? Is free parking available at the facility for students? If not, find out where parking can be found and what fees the student can expect to pay. If there is a charge for parking you may want to make prior arrangements to cover the cost for the students.

By following these guidelines you will ensure your ability to provide a comfortable and hassle free environment for your training presentation.
