  • Courses can be taken intensively, or in regular sessions over a number of weeks. If you need to train outside of normal office hours, that’s fine because we are open until 8 pm on two evenings per week, and we are also open on Saturdays between 10 am and 1 pm.;
  • If training has to be outside normal opening hours, we can arrange extended access with early starts and additional evenings, if numbers of staff or private individuals are involved;
  • Training can be accessed by the half-day, morning, afternoon or evening or by the full day – whichever suits your companies or private individual’s work pattern;

  • Students are regularly supervised in order that their progress can be established.  This also ensures that any learning difficulties are quickly identified and supported.

5) Genuine Qualifications

  • Not many training providers can say that their courses lead to recognized qualifications: A training certificate is great, but a recognized qualification from the National Framework is even better. Ask us for further details about our Level 1, 2 and 3 qualifications.
6) Delivery Methods
  • Depending on our customer’s needs, we can use a variety of training methods including instructor-led, self- paced, on-line and blended. The choice is yours;
  • Through the use of audio/visual methods of training, backed by the expert supervision of our staff, it enables students to be in complete control of their learning process;

Our training centre is on Hammersmith’s London Road and close to the town’s main shopping district, with ample parking facilities and public transport links nearby and main railways station within one minutes walk.

  • We are proud of this new status and are committed to maintaining Microsoft’s strict standards, both in our training delivery and the training environment that we provide.

  • Our customers don’t need to go elsewhere for testing services: We are approved to provide the Internet Core Computing Certification and Microsoft Office Specialist exams, the European Computer Driving License and OCR CLAiT.
