Acend Corporate Learning
Microsoft Training Toronto

As a class leader in IT learning we have become a single source of contact for training and development for many organizations in Canada. Our customized Microsoft, Adobe and Cisco learning solutions allow corporate training manager the ability to develop, execute, and track the progress of their initiatives. Maximizing the Return On Investment in training is important for all organizations, and Acend assists each client with the management and measurement of their training activities. The variety of learning options from Acend allows students to learn in the manner that best suits their schedule, budget, learning style, and level of expertise - all the while making sure the Learning in Mapped to Business Objectives. We are pleased to introduce The Acend Modern Classroom where classes are guaranteed to run. An assessment process takes places 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. The instructor assumes the role of consultant and guides each participant through the process of filling the critical gaps identified in the learning plan. The Acend Classroom has the additional benefit of being able to be delivered on our site or yours. Benefits:

  • The Acend Classroom makes it significantly more likely to be able to run a 'full class' - making it much more effective.
  • Greater knowledge transfer/retention due to the ability of learner to work one-on-one with the subject matter expert at a pace that is appropriate for him/her and NOT to be required to cover content that is irrelevant to them (either know it already or don't need to know it for their job).
  • Ability to accomplish more AND focus only topics relevant to business objectives during class. OR...finish the learning plan in less time.
  • Not necessary to complete multiple day course on consecutive days which creates much less stress on the work environment.
  • By far the largest frequency of date choices.

Acend Corporate Learning is the best choice for Adobe, Microsoft and Cisco training in Toronto.

The course content was excellent ... if there was things that weren't relevant you could skip and spend more time on things that you needed to learn. Training provider was excellent as her skill level was superb and her communication skills were superb.

I was not able to finish the whole entire course. When creating course training please make sure that it fits the allotted time (beginning to the end). We had two breaks and Instructor did not allow us to listen to the course. I had maybe another 10 mins to finish the whole course, but the Instructor said that it was 4:30pm and it is Ok and we can go home. It is not Ok not to be able to finish the course..

Mentored training actually worked quite well for me. The instructor is there in the room all the time, available if needed. A lot of material for one day, but I did manage to complete it without feeling too rushed.

It is not possible to complete a beginner's course in one day. There is a lot of information to absorb. It is wonderful that one can re-sit a session within a limited time.

To bottom line my feelings about the course: Course -- helpful but this comment is made with reservations. Instructor -- excellent !

The course material was far too heavy for the duration of the course. The material needs to be reduced so that students do not feel rushed or pressured with time, or the duration of the class needs to be extended.

Overall, the course has been well handled by the Training Provider. But i would expect that, somehow, there is a time allotted in the afternoon for more visible and face to face interaction between the TP and the whole class. Others may be asking questions that may not have been thought of by other learners but may be helpful.

This was a very good learning environment. I prefer having an instructor present in case I have questions but also be able to work at my own pace.

I could have used some more time to go through the exercises in the sharepoint database.

re Instructor assessment. ques. are N/A as it was independant mentored study. Flash based training module had 1 hiccup where ctrl-b key was captured by OS and I had to hunt for alt-b to complete the module. Class mentor was unaware of flaw. I felt that the design of the module would have prevented me from completing the section if I was unable to locate alternative keystroke. Worthwhile day.

Course is very good but not enough time to complete the exercises. Should be at least another 1.5 hours longer.

Using the self-teaching method made for a more relaxed working environment. As the instructor's assistance was on a one-on-one basis I was not hesitate to ask questions.

Would prefer an instructor led (classroom) style of training over a computer based course.
Reviewed by 2012

I would suggest that the course manual contain more visual material (e.g. screen shots) versus words. The course was very well. I did not think I would like the on line method of training but I did. I also liked the fact that I could work through my lunch to complete the course earlier. I had to catch the go train so it worked better for me.

Susan was an excellent instructor, and was very helpful with providing extra "tips" not covered within the course material.

I only realized after completing 2 units thoroughly that there is not enough time allotted for a lot practicing. I would tell students in advance that getting through the videos and practicing later in your own time is recommended.

Enjoyed the flexibility of the "Modern Classroom" style of learning where you can move at your own pace and focus on what you need most. You can even move to the next chapter if you need help and the instructor is busy. Definitely dress warmly as the classroom was really over air-conditioned!
