What Our Students Say About Microsoft Training and Certifications

"I had very little to no experience in Excel and this class was just the right pace and had the right content for a beginner. Prior to this course I had never taken a computer course, not even in college. All that I knew of Microsoft Office I figured out on my own, with a lot of help from that 'help' button and Google searches! Being in the classroom environment with an instructor was SO much easier! I'll definitely be coming back to New Horizons in the future for any computer or Microsoft Office training that I may need."

Amanda Brush
Associate Learning Specialist

"New Horizons of Southern California has delivered a series of Microsoft Office 2013 classes to the staff at California State University Dominguez Hills at their Carson, CA campus. The purpose of the ongoing training program is to provide a comprehensive and innovative training program that develops and enhances the job skills of CSUDH staff from multiple departments. The project has been an ongoing success and New Horizons is working with CSUDH to provide similar ongoing training"

"Our company has used the services of New Horizons for a number of staff to take Microsoft training. All of our training was done using the Live Online modality and this was extremely convenient for our staff and we all feel that this method gave us the same value as if we would have been in a classroom environment in person. The instructors were still very easy to interact with and easy to follow. Course material was still covered very well in this method and we could really not tell of any differences at all between this and if we were in an actual classroom."
