Quotes from our HTML students

  • "The class provided by Accelerate Computer Training for HTML Basics and taught by Tim Jones was spectacular. Having attended classes provided by other companies, I can say that the instructor’s knowledge of the topic and ability to communicate that knowledge is unmatched.

    Many training companies devote class time to non-value added information about other classes that the company offers or items not covered in the class. I have also attended classes where the prepared documentation is not supported by the labs, i.e. examples don’t work or the prepared data isn’t where the provided instructions say the data will be. Time is then wasted re-explaining how the lab would have worked if the instructions had been correct.

    Accelerate always has well prepared classes with working examples. The labs work as expected and are often tailored to the requirements of the students should a question be found to be of common interest.

    Thank you Accelerate for a job well done!"
