Cancellation Policy
ctc TrainCanada - We Never Cancel*:
We are unique in the corporate training field in that we do not cancel desktop applications courses due to low enrollment. When there are less than 3 students, ctc TrainCanada will personalize the class (students then receive more time with the instructor to address their individual needs allowing the student to complete the full course in less time) or connect the student remotely to a class at one of our other branches via TrainLive remote classroom instruction. *Microsoft Certified Courses and other technical courses require a minimum enrollment of three students. 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.

ctc TrainCanada Cancellation policy:
You may cancel or reschedule this registration in writing with no penalty with a minimum of 10 business days' notice prior to the first day of the course. Full payment is required if you cancel or reschedule this registration within 10 business days prior to the first day of the course. However, substitutions are welcome. If you do need to cancel or reschedule a publicly scheduled course within the 10 day non-cancellation period (not a client dedicated course), payment is to be made and a training voucher for a public course will be issued to you. This allows you to attend a future date for the same course at no charge (subject to availability).
No-shows will not be issued a training voucher.

Complimentary Service: We offer all our students coffee, tea, juice or pop, muffins or pastries in the morning and cookies baked in our own oven each afternoon.

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.

Handouts were in pdf however, the screens were not big enough to open two files (handout and Project file) together and we had to toggle a lot. It was very annoying. Either give paper handouts or much bigger screens or two screens per student.

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.
