We at Computer Instruction Corporation have assembled the premier computer training staff in the Washington area. Each instructor brings to the classroom practical business experience with the software they teach. Not only are they knowledgeable, they also communicate what they know with a patient and sensitive approach. Our primary concern is that the student completely understand the topics covered in class. CIC closely monitors customer evaluations at the end of a project, or student evaluations at the end of every class. They invariably rate our consultants at a 9 or 10 on a 10 point scale.
