Trainees Love Our Hands-On Training.
Trainees love our hands-on training with instant assessment because it gives them both a feeling of accomplishment and the confidence needed to go out and apply their new knowledge.
NCLab training is unique in the way it gives trainees bite-sized tutoring and asks them to show that they have learned each concept by completing tasks before going on.
To ensure success, trainees are assigned instructional support and coaching personnel who:
- Review their progress weekly;
- Meet with them regularly to discuss their progress;
- Are available to them, as needed, throughout their training;
- Provide them a professional reference upon graduation.
Interestingly, while other online courses have a less than 10% completion rate, our completion rate is close to 100%.

What Our Trainees Say About Us
“This is how I like to learn, at my own pace. I like the bite-sized tutorials and I feel a real sense of accomplishment when I complete the exercises that follow them.” M.J.
“I cannot compliment enough any training that involves students actually working on the problems rather than just listening.” A. S.
“Please extend my compliments to the NCLab team if you can, and keep advocating for this type of learning, if at the very least as an option for people like me who learn well this way.” F. A.
“The emphasis on working at your own pace removes the stress of a normal class, and I can work around my other classes. NCLab is much better than similar programs, such as DataCamp. Not only do I learn the material, I retain it. Each lesson uses all or most of the previous concepts, which provides additional practice and ensures that you don’t forget the previous material. This is one of the most enjoyable and informative programs I’ve taken.” N. L.
