What Our Students Say About Microsoft Technical Training and Certifications

"The New Horizons courses have been great so far and I am looking forward to my next one in March, they provide us with good examples and great instructors that have a deep understanding of what they are teaching as well as some serious firsthand experience with the course subject matter. I believe this works great when translated into these courses as they are able to provide us with real world scenarios that make perfect sense and really allow anyone taking the course to develop a “Plan of attack” when getting back to their own environments."

"Our organization was working on introducing Microsoft System Center into our environment but we had limited knowledge, time, and resources to get this done. New Horizons worked with our staff and our busy schedules to get us enrolled in a learning center that was close by as well as online offerings. The scheduling flexibility and the availability to re-take the class offerings really helped cement what we learned. Thanks to that we were able to implement the Microsoft solution within our organization and we have made significant progress!"
