What Our Students Say About Training and Certifications

"Our growing IT firm needed technical training for staff development as well as to meet our ongoing client requirements. We looked at several training firms and considered going to various firms depending on the training type needed. We settled on NHLG because of their local presence, flexible options, and the breadth and quality of the training. OnCore has partnered with NHLG to provide a comprehensive training program for our entire firm. Specifically, we enjoyed the ability to take training on-line from work or home and the options for technical certification testing that provided flexibility for our full-time staff that work on site with our clients. We would recommend NHLG to anyone looking for an effective training program."
