Business Skills courses require multiple students in order to run due to the interactive nature of the training. Selected Desktop Applications courses may require a minimum enrollment of two students to run. ctc TrainCanada® reserves the right to deliver Microsoft Certified and other technical courses via TrainLive remote classroom instruction in order to guarantee the course to run.

Here are some reviews of the training vendor.
The instructor was very friendly and excellent to get along with and interacted with the group very well, that being said I felt as though he sometimes couldn't quite explain his thoughts and knowledge with us effectively. There were many times students were helping students and it almost felt like a study group. It would be beneficial to have the instructor be a better communicator about his knowledge of the class but also to thoroughly know the course inside and out, sometimes it felt like he was winging it.

Last Minute Training needs to re confirm start and end times for courses. My LMT confirmation sheet said the course went from 8:30 until 4:30; however at CTC Train Canada arrived really early and was advised course was actually 9-4.

Surprise late start/finish because of a Calgary virtual participant. Instructor's initial pace was too slow and he was too accommodiating letting an overly helpful participant who added a lot of explanation (was helpful) which caused a time crunch in the afternoon. Error problem with example and server problem further added time pressure. I got left behind and the afternoon was a write-off.

Although the instructor was knowledgable of the topics covered, it came across on occasions that she wasn't fully prepared since there were times when she would have to stop and think up an exercise for us to do in class. To me, these are basic exercises that should be a part of her syllabus. Moreover, there was a large group of Canada Post employees in attendance during the last day of my course. They were often loud, similar to junior high school. There were occasions when shutting the door did not eliminate the noise coming from their room.

The instructor had limited knowledge of the program and could not answer quetions that weren't in his notes. The manual was only provided in a Kindle copy. I can not use a Kindle at work. The projection screen was to close to the work station which made it uncomfortable to look at all day.

The in class session was handled well enough, but there were no support materials or handouts to take home for students to review what they learned. This is especially important since this Excel module used complex formulas and macros. One 8 hour training day won't be enough for people to remember it when they get back to the office.

The course idea was a great one for the company I work for, HOWEVER, the course did NOT meet expectations. For example NO TEXT BOOKS, NO WORK BOOKS, NOTHING. I was sent a copy for my Kindle, however I will not use my personal property for work, this is UNACCEPTABLE!!!!!! The instuctor could have been more interactive, I know that he was a last minute instructor, but once again this is UNACCEPTABLE.

The trainer was unfortunately late for the class through no fault of her own. Secondly, the class was full of technical issues trying to support the remote users. As a result the overall class time and content was reduced. We raced through the material. Secondly - and more important - there was no roadmap presented on what we were going to learn. There was also no introduction to the software or interface. We just jumped straight into code and bounced from topic to topic with no roadmap. The instructor definitely knew her material but it came across as haphazard. I don't feel I got a lot from the day.
Reviewed by 2012
The seminar/course didn't cover all the subjects that were mentioned on the "course outline". I believe we only covered 75% of what was mentioned. I understand that the instructor was not prepared for teaching the course, but if the instructor doesn't have a firm knowledge of the software, then they shouldn't be teaching the course. It is great to hear that a company is going green by using E-books but I prefer to have a hard copy. As an employee of a company, it is difficult to install the proper software to open/read the books. Also, an average user isn't authorized to install programs without going through their respective IT/Management departments. We should have been given an option to choose between a hard copy or electronic copy. Overall, I would take another seminar if the instructor was more knowledgeable and abided by the course outline.

It was an excellent course. The instructor was knowledgable and I learned more than I expect. My only problem with the day was finding the actual office. The instructions indicate the 'Delta Tower' but there is no where on the actual building that says 'Delta Tower'. To make things more confusing, there is a Delta Hotel across the street.

The course outline stated the durtion of the course is from 9:00am-4:30pm, however the instractor said it's going to be a half day course. This was ok but it didn't leave any time to practice and the minimal practice we didn't wasn't enough. Also, not all material was covered and it felt like I came out short. The material that was covered was great and the instructor was knowlegable but he didn't cover enough material. comparing dollars versus value - the content of the course wasn't worth the cost of the course.

If there weren't enough class participants signed up, the 2nd day of training which we paid for was cancelled and we could either come in and work on exercises or attend another class at another time. A notice was sent out to the participants who registered directly with CTC Train Canada but because I went through Last Minute Training, I wasn't advised. This is one major setback. They did have a very nice office, free coffee/tea and bagels, a nice outdoor patio to have lunch or breaks and made fresh cookies mid day for everyone. Very pleasant staff. Trainer began his session with how he was trying to get out of this business for the last 15 yrs and probably shouldn't be saying that. Not a happy way to introduce himself but he was a very good teacher and patient and addressed all of our concerns trying to cover as much of the material normally covered in 2 days into 1 day.

The course was initially scheduled for 2 days but due to instructor availability it was shortened to one day. I am very computer literate, work full time in an office, and go to business school in the evenings and it was a little tough to learn everything in one day because there was no time for practice. Yes it was useful to find out what the program is capable of, but since it was shortened there was no time for individual practicing or trying things out on your own. Next time the class would be much better suited for the initial 2 day class.

All in all, this training was not that great. The first part moved very slowly, and then toward the end, the instructor plowed through to get finished. Possibly the most incredible part was that the course taught how to create forms, but not how to deploy or use them. The instructor said for that, participants would have to take the follow up course. What use is it to create forms if they can't be used? No handouts at all? Other courses I've taken provide full books with step by step coverage of everything done in the classroom. It's impossible to go back and review things.

My most significant feedback is that the course was advertised as Working with Data using SQL for the 'non-database administrator'. Of the 10 course modules, nearly half were presented by the instructor as tasks that would be completed by a database administrator. While it is helpful to have a general understanding of a database administrators interaction with SQL, far too much of the course content was aimed at the database administrator level. Otherwise, use of technology for remote teaching and the instructor himself were both excellent.

I signed up at one facility in Ottawa and it got switched to a different training facility location in Hull, Quebec. There were several emails confirming the course, however, I just happen to notice one email stating the new location. LastMinuteTraining was good to try to look into for me. In the end, the training provider provided me with taxi chits and it all worked out. I was not aware that the training provider had 2 locations and would switch the location at the last minute. I was upset because I do not know the bus system in Hull, Quebec.

Project 2010 was a brand new course, as such there were a few things that the instructor could not find (in the new "ribbon" layout).

I took a course that was remote and I don't think that I would take a remote course again. The instructor didn't really make himself available for questions. Even when their was questions he would take them offline if they took more then 5 minutes to answer. Never brought the results back to the group. Never went over the labs just lectured in between. Didn't bother to learn anyone's name. I think the experience would be better if each user in the class had a headset and could speak to the instructor instead of it being a conference call.

The course was held via remote. The course it self was alright, all content was directly from the book. The teacher was in another time zone and he wanted to start the course before my location even opened. I told him that, he did it anyways. So I was out of sync the whole time. On the last day lunch was at 10 am! The instructor said he would watch screens to see when we got stuck. Not once did that happen. He couldnt even troubleshoot the labs. He only really talked to the student in the room, pretty much said nothing to rest of us. He even took personal calls!

The course is good for a basic overview of many advanced Excel features. The instructor and facilities were good. However, some of the items listed on the syllabus (new features in Excel 2010) were NOT covered and it wasn't due to a lack of time. I came to find out that the instructor had not planned to cover them at all. This was very disappointing, especially since we took very look breaks (easily almost 2 hours of combined break time in a class that went from 9-4) so there was ample time to cover the topics.

It was unfortunate that the local instructor was not available and I had to call in remotely to a class in Toronto. I did have the instructor screen available and I liked that. The first part of the course was helpful as the instructor moved through the functionality of MS Project and we could follow along on our own screen. I learned a lot about functionality with this instructor led demonstration, and the ability to follow along on my computer was great! I did find that after the first demonstration, a lot of time was spent working independantly, with the instructor available for questions. I thought there should have been more instructor led demonstration, perhaps one on our own, followed by another instructor led example. I didn't like spending well over 50% of the course time practicing on my own. If this is how all classes are run, I would not take another one, nor recommend this class.
