About ONLC Training Centers

ONLC Training Centers has been providing computer training for over 40 years.

Providing Computer Training for Over 40 Years

ONLC Training Centers (incorporated as Online Consulting, Inc.) 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.

More than forty years later, ONLC Training Centers is still one of the the largest privately held IT training companies in the USA. We deliver instructor-led, hands-on computer training classes at our hundreds of training centers coast to coast. Students can also choose to attend our live classes and events from their own location.

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.

Classrooms Coast to Coast for Best Learning

We know the importance of the classroom in the learning process. That’s why we have hundreds of 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 training centers 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.

Training Innovators—RCI™

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 reduce our cancellation rate to below 3% (the lowest in the training industry) while still delivering 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 the traditional classroom with online instruction. We call it RCI.
