ONLC Training Centers was founded in 1983 when Jim Palic and Andy Williamson left their positions as mainframe programmers with the Dupont Company to start one of the industry's first computer training companies.
Over thirty-five years and still growing, ONLC Training Centers is one of the the largest privately held IT training companies in the USA. We deliver instructor-led, hands-on computer training at our hundreds of training centers coast to coast.
ONLC is a well-run closely held corporation with no debt; our national
expansion has been financed internally. You can be certain that when you pay ONLC
for training we will deliver.
We know the importance of the classroom in the learning process. That’s why we have hundreds of physical training locations, making ONLC the largest IT training company in North America. A quiet, interruption-free classroom environment helps students focus and make the most of their training.
Our training centers are in office buildings (majority class A) in popular suburban office parks and downtown central business districts. We lease facilities in safe, professional areas. RCI is used to connect students from multiple locations with the instructor for class.
ONLC Training Centers is a Gold Microsoft Partner, meeting Microsoft’s highest standards for delivering their technical and end-user training. And we deliver a lot of it—more than any other training provider in North America. On any given week we have over 50 different Microsoft Office classes running on our public schedule and a variety of Microsoft technical classes.
ONLC has been instrumental in helping corporations and government agencies move to the newest version of Microsoft technologies including Azure, Microsoft 365, Office, Power Platform and more with our Group Training option. Choose to have the instructor virtually or in-person at your location. This private and highly effective group training option can also be customized to meet specific objectives, schedules and budgets.
Whether you need Microsoft technical, end-user application or group training on any Microsoft technology, ONLC Training Centers has the classes and training for you to succeed.
Computer training is our only business. As a result, we focus all of our energy on meeting the training needs of our clients. In 2004, when we saw how businesses and individuals were being impacted by the training industry's chronic class cancellation problem, we responded.
We pioneered a solution that connects multiple classrooms into a single live training event. This allowed us to drop our cancellation rate to below 3% (the lowest in the training industry) while still delivering a classroom-based, instructor-led training solution. We feel strongly that the classroom is the centerpiece of an exceptional training experience and created a solution that blends traditional and remote classroom instruction. We call it RCI.
ONLC Training Centers has been providing instructor-led
classes since our start in 1983. Our decades of success speaks volumes about the
high quality trainers in our classrooms.
Most of our trainers have earned multiple vendor certifications and have extensive consulting experience that allows them to provide real-world examples so students can relate and retain the information better.
All of our trainers have advanced presentation skills and years of classroom training experience.
ONLC Training Centers has been named to TrainingIndustry.com's annual Top 20 Training Companies List consecutively since 2012.
Their list is a world-wide competition that recognizes leadership and innovation from companies that deliver IT training.
The organizations selected showcase the best this segment of the industry has to offer,” said Doug Harward, Training Industry Inc.’s Chief Executive Officer.
Due to the diversity of client requirements in the marketplace, Training Industry provides the top 20 companies but does not rank them.
For seven consecutive years, ONLC Training Centers made Inc. Magazine’s annual list of the fastest growing companies in the U.S. Companies are selected based on their percentage of growth over a 3-year period.
ONLC Training Centers was the only Microsoft Authorized training partner to be recognized so many years in a row.
