Computer Application Workshops

“When we needed a training course in Microsoft Access we turned to MCC Business and Training Services. Throughout the preparation and delivery of the training the staff was professional, efficient and flexible. Our instructor was very good—she was able to adapt her delivery to a group of people with varying degrees of computer experience and took the time to answer all of our questions. We will definitely keep BTS in mind for our future training needs.”
- John LaMar, Overland Products Company
