To see the class meeting times for your time zone, hover the mouse over the date listed on this outline page and the class times will pop up. Classes typically start at 8 pm Eastern, 7 pm Central, 6 pm Mountain, and 5 pm Pacific. Classes meet from 2 to 3 hours each night, depending on the particular class.
Where does the class meet?
All After-Hours classes must be taken from your home or office.

Excel Database Features and PivotTables Weekday Class
Is this the same content as the daytime class?
The instructor will review the most important topics during the live instructor-led session. However, the duration of the evening class is slightly less than the daytime class. To compensate for the reduced hours, we include our ONLC On-Demand content. These are self-study materials that will not only fill in the gaps in your learning, but you will also give you the opportunity to review concepts for 6 months after the class. In addition, should you not be able to attend one of the evening sessions, you will have the On-Demand content to bring you back up to speed. We've got you covered!
What software and hardware is needed?
- You need just a basic computer with an internet connection. The software will be loaded on our servers and you will connect to that computer. (So no software is needed on your computer). Here's a more detailed list:
- At least 1 monitor (Dual monitors or 2 devices would be helpful, but not required.)
- Audio Connection. You can use audio from your computer with a microphone (a standalone microphone, headset, or even a camera that has a microphone.) Most laptops will have a built-in microphone and speaker.Or use your cell phone.
