Dear Friends, Clients and Students:

In our on-going effort to inform and educate our readers to the many important and valuable services The Academy offers, we have prepared the following “Q & A” presentation to tell you in the clearest and most straightforward manner what we provide for our corporate students.

Who we are:
The Academy of South Florida, Inc. is ranked the #1 Microsoft Gold Partner in the entire State of Florida, providing world class education and consulting services. Our highly trained, experienced instructors and consultants are proficient in both real-time program implementations as well as professional formal classroom instructional techniques. All this provides each student with the highest quality and a most successful learning experience.

What is The Academy’s Value to the South Florida Business Community?
Through a close and collaborative working relationship with its many strategic partners/alliances, corporate clients can look to The Academy as a “Trusted Advisor” with respect to any issue involving solutions for corporate information technology applications designed to increase profits, expand market share, improve customer services, create operational efficiencies and whatever other additional “cutting edge” technology available that can add and support the corporate strategy for growth, success and profit.

What are some of the Services and Technologies that The Academy offers?
It has continuously expanded its services over the years into every advanced technology application including net-work implementation, migrations, design and validation for Active Directories & Exchanges and more. We have also successfully provided custom developed and designed software solutions delivered on the Microsoft. Net Framework and Microsoft SQL platforms.

Most recently, The Academy has further expanded its services to include staffing by qualified individuals, including graduates of The Academy, contractors, permanent placements, and our new seven-day-a-week help desk to assist corporate clients in outsourcing the tracking and resolution of most of their low level IT issues. The addition of this expanded menu of IT solutions has already greatly helped many of our clients. These include both corporate clients and individuals in finding the right people for critical IT positions, placing the right people in the right jobs as needed.

What are the locations and the number of classrooms available for students?
The Academy maintains two campuses with the latest and most advanced state-of-the-art equipment, and 11 fully equipped classrooms providing the student with the latest and best available hardware and software with which to learn the IT craft.

What is the success (pass/fail) rate for the school?
The Academy enjoys one of the highest passing (successful completion) rates for this type of institution in the country, 96% passing. The industry average passing rate is 35%!

What corporate executives are saying about our program.
“The instructors do an excellent job of covering the requisite material, moving quickly through the basics that most students are comfortable with, and then slowing the pace for those who need more time to assimilate the new material.”-“The most important aspect of this program is the experience and knowledge of the instructors both in and out of the classroom.”-“Their ability to answer questions and provide examples based on real world experience is invaluable.”-“Making “dry” material entertaining is an art. Very impressive!”

We trust that this information will be helpful in providing you with some important benchmarks about our valuable services. We welcome your inquiries, comments and suggestions.

We appreciate your continued interest and support and look forward to providing you and your organization with the training and information services you require.
