should I look for when choosing a training organization?
First, look for a organization that specializes in the technology
you want to learn. Other things to look for include:
Size - The smaller, the more individual attention the instructor
can give each student. We allow a maximum of 12 students
Facilities - Does each student get their own computer? Are
the facilities up to date and conducive to learning? We
offer each student their own PC in the most up-to-date facilities
- How much will the course cost. Our courses are competitively
- Of course, it needs to be convenient to get to. We are located
in major downtown locations. Back to

are the advantages of instructor led training?
The main advantage of instructor led training is that the
student gets to interact with the instructor, ask questions,
and ask for further explanation when things are not clear.
Classes also offer a more structured environment; they meet
on a certain schedule with assignments due each class. Many
people find it easier to learn new technologies in this
of environment compared to trying to learn them themselves.
Another big advantage of instructor led training is the
to interact with other students that are in the same position
you are. Many students say they learned as much from interacting
and working with the other students in the class as they
did from the instructor (it's also a great place to network). Back
materials do courses include?
Each course includes a specially developed course manual.
Manuals are timely, engaging, and updated continually. Course
content will engage you in thinking about what you do on the
job. Case studies, exhibits, and practical exercises help
reinforce major principles. Back to Top
