Introducing the Acend Modern Classroom Classes Guaranteed to Run

An assessment process takes place at the start of class that results in the creation of a personalized learning plan for each participant . We integrate each individual's specific project objectives with their skill gaps to create the learning prescription.

Manual provided was totally different then computer training. Expected more hands on training instead of just watching an instruction video.
Reviewed by 2012
The video - was not at all interactive - only concepts were presented. The manual completedly different from the video material. I have no objections to using different approaches but a course on any software must include interactive materials.
