The training was great! I took the ECMS 1 virtually, ECMS 2 in person at Current Technologies Computer Learning Center. Highly recommended! I also took the 500-220 exam there. I have ~5 years of career Meraki experience so the I used the ECMS2 class mostly as review and exam preparation, although it would be beneficial to anyone looking to learn more about Meraki. What I really appreciated about CTCLC was their approach to learning with hands on physical labs. They also offer a 5 day full Meraki bootcamp that goes more in depth than either the ECMS 1 or 2 (based on some of the preview slides and information I gathered while there). I cannot specifically vouch for that one as I did not take it myself, but I would definitely recommend it to others based on the experience I had. If you want more information about enrolling there, Donna Doan would be a very helpful contact! They offer both virtual and online. I would be happy to connect if you have more specific questions about my experience with Meraki/training, CTCLC, or the 500-220 exam preparation that I did.

“I started attending classes at Current Technology over 10 years ago when I began my MCSE certification in NT4.0. Over the years, I have upgraded my certifications and have found the instructor led classes to be the best environment to learn new technologies. The facility is excellent and staff quality is of the highest caliber. I have sent my staff to Current Technologies for advanced training and would highly recommend Current Technologies anyone interested in starting or advancing a career in Information Technology.”

“The Administering Cisco Unified Communications Manager (ACUCM) class I took was the best training I’ve been to for work. Alan was able to explain everything in a manner that was easy to learn and his knowledge of the material was unreal.”

“Current Technologies Computer Learning Centers (CTCLC) provides a wonderful learning environment. My instructors (Scott Murphy & Ron Glos) made the classes (A+ & Network+) easier to understand with many real world examples. Also, Donna Doan was helpful in pointing you in the right direction in selecting classes. The training was very beneficial to my job and taking the certification exams. I would recommend Current Technologies Computer Learning Centers (CTCLC) to anyone who is interested in training in the IT industry. The training has definitely expanded my knowledge in the IT area. Keep Up the Good Work!”

“Current Technologies Computer Learning Center is the premier school to get training and get certified in the Chicago area – PERIOD. I have attended several classes there for my personal growth and highly recommended Current Technologies to my bosses at work. My employer sent many of us for IT classes – as well as other professionals in the company for other classes and everyone was more that completely satisfied. The staff is ALWAYS willing to help and go out of their way to ensure you understand everything THOROUGHLY. The teaching staff is top notch and you won’t find a more knowledgeable leader than Alan Gardner. His expertise is well documented and his certifications literally fill hallways. If you are looking for professional IT training I cannot recommend highly enough that you attend Current Technologies.”

“Current Technologies has helped my company in so many ways. I personally met with Alan and he enlightened me to some great opportunities that they were offering for classroom training. The Microsoft and Cisco training that my employees have received will pay dividends now and into the future. The staff sat by us step by step throughout the entire process from signup through testing. They were even willing to work around our hectic work schedules which made it very convenient for us staffing wise. The entire staff at Current Technologies is always very friendly, professional and willing to help in any way possible. The certifications and knowledge that my staff has attained through their training at Current Technologies is top notch. We will continue to better ourselves and our organization through the expert instruction that we receive at Current.”

“I have personally attended A+, MCSE 2000, and CCNA classes at Current Technologies Computer Learning Center. I have also sent many of my employees to these classes. The instructors, course materials, and facilities are excellent. I recommend CTCLC to everyone interested in learning and becoming certified in PC hardware/OS software, Microsoft, and Cisco.”

“I just wanted to thank your staff for the personal and expeditious service we recently received from your company. About 20 members of our staff attended FrontPage 2002 Training. The training we received was well planned and personalized to meet our needs. Dave Gregory was very knowledgeable about web design and took time to answer varied questions from our group.”“I also appreciate the time Dave took to review the web pages I sent him. This helped our group receive the instructions they needed to modify and update their current web pages. Service like this is not always expected but always appreciated.”

“During late 2015, I attended 3 Unified Contact Center Training classes which were given by Current Technologies Computer Learning Center. My instructor for all 3 training sessions was Alan Gardner. My training classes included UCCE Part 2 (AUCEE2), CVP Implementation and Deployment, and CUIC Deployment. Alan’s has a wealth of knowledge on current UCCE Releases as well as retired releases, his knowledge includes real-world experiences which provided valuable insight to further my education. The labs created by CTCLC were challenging, fully functional, and spot on with client’s current implementations. CTCLC’s labs provided each student their own pod that allows students to go at their own pace and without impacting other students productivity. Alan’s method he uses to teach covered a broad spectrum, he was able to keep the client motivated, on schedule, including our attention span. Alan’s ability to shift from troubleshooting to training, to mentoring, and even customer interfacing provided the students key indicators as to what is needed to become a valued asset to any Customer who needs Cisco Contact Enterprise training. To expand upon previous comments regarding Alan and CTCLC the training guides are well written and easy to follow, enhanced labs, real-world and current version experience, advanced troubleshooting capabilities, extensive knowledge of Microsoft products made all the difference in my training. I used a different provider for UCCE Part 1 (AUCCE1) and I can say without a doubt there is a significant advantage in working with Alan and CTCLC. Their labs work, Alan is able to identify and resolve real world issues, his ability to maintain class control while keeping your attention. Without CTCLC and Alan I do not believe I would have been able to pass both Cisco Exams, (600-455, 600-460).CTCLC and Alan are both assets which I can depend upon and will definitely use in the future for any Cisco or Microsoft training.”

“Before knowing of Current Technologies CLC, I had taken a couple of SDWAN courses from other training providers. Although the course taught the necessary fundamentals of SDWAN, it only scratched the surface. The SDWAN training offered by CTCLC provided more knowledge needed to understand this technology. It has covered more material, concept and real-world training, than any other vendor. Alan Gardner is very knowledgeable and expert in Cisco Viptela/SDWAN. Training materials are well written and touched on topics I wish I knew prior to my migration. He keeps students engaged, answers all questions, and ensures all important topics and concepts are reinforced. The lab is top notch and allows the students to bring up a working network as you would in a production environment. Staff is great, helpful and very responsive.I recommend CTCLC to anyone interested in learning Cisco SDWAN. ”

Sr. Network Administrator

“As network administrator for the Portage Police Department, I enrolled in the MCSE series at Current Technologies Computer Learning Center. I was interested in obtaining practical, hands-on training that would enable me to immediately implement the technology I was learning in class. The classes were outstanding and 100% hands-on. Instructors were always available after class to assist me with job-related questions and exam preparation. I passed my all MCSE exams on the first try and became an MCSE in just 9 months. I love my job and earning my MCSE has been a tremendous benefit to me personally and professionally.”

“Can’t thank you all enough. I was told you all wouldn’t disappoint and you didn’t. In all of our interactions, Current Technologies CLC was professional, responsive and delivered above and beyond. Alan Gardner is probably the Best technical instructor I’ve had in over 20+ years in the industry – and many classes in those years. I would highly recommend the “Implementing and Configuring Cisco (Viptela) SDWAN (ICSDWAN-CT) class and Alan as an instructor – not forgetting Donna Doan for running logistics for us and providing everything we needed to get this group training accomplished. Thank you all!
