Best price in the DMV area to get certification training

It's the best price in the DMV area to get certification training. Classes are small (2-15). They provide training and testing guarantees. Very conducive to learning.

My go to place for certifications

My go to place for certifications. Many active duty and veterans go to trainace because It is covered by the g.i. bill. Staff and instructors are nice and my husband and I keep in touch often. They also provide job boards and have real-time knowledge of the IT community and what is needed/sought for when it comes to certifications. I highly suggest setting up roots with this company as your main cert provider. Love you guys! <3

Absolutely worth the money spent

Absolutely worth the money spent - took the Certified Ethical Hacker course as a one-week bootcamp. The cost includes the EC Council exam, which I passed excellently thanks to having James Younger as a teacher for the course.

I had a great time at the Greenbelt teaching location!

I had a great time at the Greenbelt teaching location! Also I became a CCNA with a diligent yet fun instructor. If you decide to take training there, you will be in good hands.

I just completed the CCNA course and it was a great hands-on training experience.

I just completed the CCNA course and it was a great hands-on training experience. This is NOT “Death by PowerPoint” training. In fact, there was not a single PowerPoint slide used in the entire course. The instructor has years of experience and is a Cisco expert. He explained complicated topics in the simplest terms and then we practiced on actual CISCO routers and switches. TrainACE has a great facility that is easy to get to. I highly recommend TrainACE to anybody that wants to actually learn the CCNA objectives and not just be taught the test.
