Back to Associate Learning and Certification Programs

At Duncans we focus on developing the special skill set required to "super exceed" in the computer world of the immediate future. 

Our focus group is the 9 to 18 year old computer enthusiast.

Through self-paced learning, taking place in our computer shop and in our Learning Center, as well as over the Internet, we can help you can join the worldwide thousands of qualified and Certified Computer Professionals ....

These include,

A+ Computer Professionals and Technicians

Cisco Certified Network Associates

Microsoft Certified System Engineers

We do not teach.........................we facilitate..

We do not have a classroom....we have a Learning Center and we use the Internet.

Our young Associates are not students...they are learners.....more accurately they are Associates.

The knowledge and skill set we impart to our learners is conveyed through self- paced computer-based interactive training modules that run on your own computer.

As one of our Associates we will encourage you to start your own consulting business the day you start our program...in fact we already have a goal for you to earn some serious money for yourself while you take the course! Many of our Associates, some of whom are only 11 and 12 years old, can earn in excess of $15 per hour when they work in our shop building computers and serving our customers!

This money can be used towards your next course, your high performance Duncans eLearn Computer, regular upgrades to keep your computer at the edge of the technology, and/or put money in your pocket for clothes, hobbies and other spending money. 

We will show you how to lead a lifestyle of a successful and highly trained Computer Professional.

We expect your earning capability within a few years of completing our Senior Certification programs to be as high as $75,000 per year, and even higher in some circumstances.

This "will happen" if  you have practical "on-the-job" experience!

The income your earn during the course is therefore essential for your success when you are fully accredited. It is an important part of our program.

Experience, and a track record of successful earnings, will help you move smoothly into an exceptionally high paying career and full deployment of all your computer capabilities. 

We show you how to professionally document your work from the very beginning of your association with us. This documentation forms a formal part of your resume, and professional record.

We show you how to see yourself as a "highly rewarded" Professional from the first day of the program!

Back to Associate Learning and Certification Programs

There are four major points in the Associate Program

1. We facilitate your self-paced learning towards a certification of your choice. We show the choices, and carefully help you set achievable goals for yourself, and then help you meet those goals. 

2. We provide not only "lab work opportunity" but "real-time on-the- job" documented experience. 

This is a serious apprenticeship program in our shop involving working directly with our customers, building servicing and upgrading their machines and networks.

3. We share concepts of change, an essential skill set in the fastest changing business in the world. 

We do not see you doing anything else other than, "helping other people change", once you are an accredited computer professional.

 We start to prepare you for that from day one of our program.

4. We provide a very rich source of computer expertise through your association with young people, like yourself, working together towards industry accreditation. They become part of your strength, as you join our team, and you strengthen our team when you join it, bringing your own special set of skills into the mix. 

There is a golden vein of computer expertise that you tap into by joining our Association.
