NEWS FLASH: Guaranteed Classes
Read about our bold step to eradicate every IT manager's greatest annoyance with the IT Training Industry!

After registering and paying for a training class, ever been notified that it's been cancelled due to low enrolment?
You need our Guaranteed Classes!

Ever wonder why so many IT training classes get cancelled at the last minute? Some of it is certainly due to the slow economy, but mostly it's the unavoidable side-effects of a widespread business practice. Hoping to cast a wide net, many training vendors schedule far more class offerings than they could actually staff with instructors for the same time period. Then, when class time draws near, for each instructor they cancel all classes except the one with the most students. This practice understandably frustrates prospective students and also their managers, who must scramble to find an equivalent class for the same time period from other vendors—who will likely be playing "musical chairs" with their student registrations also! During our 25+ year history as an IT vendor, we've certainly had to cancel some classes, but far fewer than most of our competitors. This is because we've used 3 students as our quota to run a class (which is only feasible for a low-overhead vendor like us), rather than the industry standard of 6 students

As another industry first, we now guarantee to run each of our classes that has at least ONE student! This means that once you are properly enrolled for a class, you'll know for certain that it will run—and more importantly, that you will get the training you need at that time.
