1. New!!! On-line Instructor Led Classes at TLCC

TLCC has been the leader in self-paced training courses for over 14 years, and now, is the leader in XPages training with a full curriculum of self-paced training courses on XPages. Many of our customers love our courses but just have trouble setting aside the time to take the course. There are always interruptions during the day and tasks that need to be completed right away. One solution is to attend a scheduled class with a live instructor to explain the content and help with the activities. Now TLCC is offering live instructor led classes, on-line, so you can continue to get TLCC's training regardless of your location. You attend scheduled on-line lectures and get the full attention of an expert TLCC instructor when you need help with the activities. After the class you have access to the TLCC self-paced course to further review the material and use the course as a reference guide, plus you get continued instructor support in the course discussions for an additional six months!

Each course is scheduled for four days. You will spend two hours in the morning learning from the TLCC instructor and then have time to complete activities assisted by your instructor. In the afternoon will be another two hour session followed by more activity time. (The times may vary depending on the daily schedule.) You will use the TLCC course materials as your reference guide and to perform the demonstrations and activities. Class size will be limited to provide for maximum instructor attention if you need help doing an activity.

Below is the upcoming schedule. All classes will start at 9:00 AM and run to 5:00 PM, U.S. Central time.
