What People are Saying... 

 "The staff at TC Training Center are friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the classes they teach. They give examples, and explain things in detail in a way that is easy to understand. They encourage questions and offer "hands on" sessions.

I have been fortunate to attend some training sessions facilitated by Carol Brown, through the Northern Michigan Chapter of IAAP and have always left with a wealth of knowledge that I could take back to my office and start using."

"I have taken the Outlook, Access, and Excel 1 classes from TC Training Center thus far and am eagerly waiting to take the Word and Excel 2 classes this fall. Carol is an excellent instructor with an easy going hands on approach. The classes adapt to the particular needs of the student and each have a clear booklet included. She is extremely well versed in all the Microsoft Office Suite programs and can explain in detail how they may be integrated with each other to make your job easier and more professional.

TC Training Center has partnered with the Traverse Area Association of Realtors® to provide training that will be particularly beneficial to Realtors® and how  programs like Outlook can work with Paragon to help your business be more productive and organized.
These classes are a must for any business person!"

 "The TC Training Center is the best place for computer training.  Their educational lab is so user friendly and their instructors are so easy to understand and follow.  Their classes are so thorough yet, not overwhelming.  I love the instructional manuals they send you home with – they help keep the information fresh and when I get stuck, referring to them has saved me hours of time.  Carol Brown is a fantastic instructor, smart business woman and phenomenal community member.  She has donated countless hours of her time instructing Seniors on the computer.  She has introduced the technological age to an ageless population – she is the best!"

"The training I have received from TC Training Center has been so helpful. The classroom setup with hands on learning is the best for me. The knowledge of the staff is immense--I don't think I have heard a question they haven't been able to answer! My employees attendance will be next...Thanks Carol!"

"My first exposure to the TC Training Center was through the Traverse City Chamber of Commerce.  The 1 ½-hour workshop was on Microsoft Mail Merge.  I was impressed with the classroom setting, presentation equipment and the clear take-a-way handouts.  Most importantly, the instructor, Carol Brown, kept the class on track and was very knowledgeable about the software.  This experience inspired me to take an additional morning workshop on EXCEL Pivot Tables as well as two full day classes, namely, Intermediate EXCEL and PowerPoint.

I would strongly encourage any business to explore the TC Training Center.  Class sizes are relatively small and Carol makes it a point that her students walk away with a clear understanding of today’s common office and home PC software products."

Victor Dinsmoore

"I have taken 3 different computer class, the classes were all very educational for me. They were organized with a great layout.  I felt very comfortable asking questions.  It is a wonderful learning environment as the class sizes were small.  The booklets that I learned from while in the classes are still useful to me now, I refer to them all the time for things I have forgot but knew that I was taught.  I would recommend anyone to sign up and see for themselves how useful a computer class can be.  I am much quicker and feel more confident in my self for the things I have learned.

Thank you TC Training Center, I look forward to coming to you again in the future when I need to learn something new!"

"Carol Brown is a skilled, knowledgeable teacher and has a gift for keeping it easy, simple, and fun while you learn new computer skills. Her TC Training Center is well equipped, comfortable and relaxed. Carol takes the time to explain things until you understand them, and then gives you a workbook with all the exercises and examples in it to take home for review.  I highly recommend Carol Brown for all of your computer training. You will learn a lot, meet new friends and have fun through the process."

"I love TC Training Center.  Carol is a great teacher and valuable resource and the Center is very comfortable.  Great coffee, too! Even after using Excel for a number of years, I took her Excel 1 and 2 classes and learned a lot, sure makes setting up spreadsheets a breeze now!  She is very knowledgeable about Microsoft products and has a great teaching style.  I plan on taking two more classes from her in the near future.  I recommend her to anyone who needs computer instruction.  A class from TC Training is a great investment!"

"Thanks so much for the Outlook course I took last week.  While I was familiar with the program and had used it for a while, you really enlightened me to some features that I simply didn’t know were there.  It will really help me to become even more efficient with an already integral program for our business.  I was very impressed with the facility and your level of professionalism as the instructor.  You were able to teach the material in a way that was very easy to understand, even for some of those in the class that were just beginning to use their computers."

"Thanks for the opportunity to tell you just how much I love your classes.  I have taken Microsoft office suite training from you and have recommended your training facility to many!  I love the way we all have the ability to train hands-on.  At the same time you are showing us on the overhead exactly what we should be seeing and you always have time for questions. 

I have taken training seminars for excel from Rockhurst University and found that your approach taught me more and I was able to retain much more with the hands-on approach you use versus the classroom style of the University training.  I also wanted to thank you for your personal interaction and great attitude!  You really know how to make learning fun."

"The TC Training Center is my one stop shop for software training. I recommend them frequently to fellow business owners who need to update their skills WITHOUT wasting time. TC Training Center offers the personal attention that an on-line tutorial can’t. Keep up the great work!"

Mary Rogers

"The TC Training Center offers a variety of services to allow individuals to stay current with ever changing technology. Classes give hands on training that make learning much more effective than reading a manual. This is a win-win-win experience...great classes, no driving downstate for training and my dollars stay in our community."

"You are a local business with reasonable prices and we have heard only total satisfaction from our many employees who have enjoyed your classes."

"I would like to participate in courses offered by TC Training Center for the sole reason of my previous experience with this company.  My wife and I took part for the first time in the summer 2008, in the Excel Level 1 course.  We were genuinely impressed by the professionalism and knowledge of the trainer as well as her ability to explain the concepts to all the participants, so no one was left behind.  The classroom and equipment were modern and conducive to learning.  The materials provided were clear and enabling, they were not only useful in the class but as well at home and work.   This course was led in an extremely friendly atmosphere. 

Our experience with TC Training Center left us with positive feelings and convinced us to participate in Excel Level 2 but this time with people we had recommended the course to.  We are planning to participate in other courses in the nearest future, as it is by far the best computer-training center in Northern Michigan. "

Michael VanAntwerp

"I would take a computer class from TC Training because I already have and have found the training to be individualized, easy-to-follow, and extremely well planned.  The instructor was very knowledgeable and helpful to all the students in class.  The rates are very reasonable and the curriculum is outstanding.  Carol and crew do an excellent job helping individuals of all ability levels to gain skill level and feel competent and successful.

I’m grateful for their service, professionalism and willingness to take learners of all levels of proficiency!"

"Carol was a great instructor!  No matter what your compter skill level is, Carol can help.  She is very knowledgable, patient, and she really takes the time to make sure that each student is understanding the material presented.  Her class was relaxed and fun, and I look forward to going to more classes at TC Training Center!"

"Many thanks to you for the great class.  You are an excellent instructor - clear, flexible in dealing with the many questions that came up, very knowledgeable. I especially liked your ability to deal with the different skill levels in the group; I believe everyone - from Outlook newbie to more experienced Outlook users - came away with good, solid, understandable information.  Your room set up was great, too; comfortable, quality equipment, and set up so it was easy to see and interact with each class member.  With all the available snacks and a refrigerator full of water, it's obvious you are thinking about how to make your clients happy"
