Over 30 Years of Providing Computer Training
ONLC Training Centers was founded in 1983 when Jim Palic and Andy Williamson left their positions as mainframe programmers with the Dupont Company to start one of the industry's first computer training companies.
Over thirty years and still growing, ONLC Training Centers is one of the the largest privately held IT training companies in the USA. We deliver instructor-led, hands-on computer training at our more than 300 locations coast to coast.
ONLC is a well-run closely held corporation with no debt; our national
expansion has been financed internally. You can be certain that when you pay ONLC
for training we will deliver.
Computer training is our only business. As a result, we focus all of our energy on meeting the training needs of our clients. In 2004, when we saw how businesses and individuals were being impacted by the training industry's chronic class cancellation problem, we responded.
We pioneered a solution that connects multiple classrooms into a single live training event. This allowed us to drop our cancellation rate to below 3% (the lowest in the training industry) while still delivering a classroom-based, instructor-led training solution. We feel strongly that the classroom is the centerpiece of an exceptional training experience and created a solution that blends traditional and remote classroom instruction. We call it RCI.
ONLC Training Centers has been providing instructor-led classes since our start in 1983. Our decades of success speaks volumes about the high quality trainers in our classrooms.
Most of our trainers have earned multiple vendor certifications and have extensive consulting experience that allows them to provide real-world examples so students can relate and retain the information better.
All of our trainers have advanced presentation skills and years of classroom training experience.
Classrooms for Best Learning
We know the importance of the classroom in the learning process. That’s why we have over 300 physical training locations, making ONLC the largest IT training company in North America. A quiet, interruption-free classroom environment helps students focus and make the most of their training.
Our sites are in office buildings (majority class A) in popular suburban office parks and downtown central business districts. We lease facilities in safe, professional areas. RCI is used to connect students from multiple locations with the instructor for class.
