Student Testimonials from New Horizons

NHCentral Testimonials

New Horizons Pittsburgh strives to deliver a consistent top-of-class-training experience. Learn how our innovative learning methods impact our students:


New Horizons presented a Microsoft Project overview to the local AITP. "Hoss" is an energetic, engaging, and knowledgeable subject matter expert. I've taken two advanced certificate classes with New Horizons. Both instructors were fantastic and really care about their students. I'm still in email contact with both of them, who continue to be valuable resources. Whether you need to hone your craft, learn a new tool for your job, or want to take your career to the next level, you can trust New Horizons to guide you.

Dedicated parking lot structure. Views of the Pittsburgh skyline. Great space for training and for if you need to rent space to conduct training.

I first met Jeff when I was in a rough spot in my life. He was giving a presentation on his company’s basic business computer skills programs to a homeless veteran shelter I was staying at. He had the general litterateur of services offered by NH so I decided to speak with him about more advanced courses that I needed for professional development to put myself back into a more successful situation. He worked with me to finance the training through my GI bill and he has gone out for his way to help ensure my success being supportive of my journey from down and out to self-reliance. Believing in me even when I doubted myself, he pushed me to move on. I am on my feet at the moment and still looking to grow and advance, and he is helping me to finish the goals I set out to accomplish 3-4 years ago when we first met.

Training at New Horizons has provided an excellent learning environment.  I have taken classes at small and large universities as well as online, and for me, New Horizons interactive training is actually the best way to learn.  The New Horizons training centers provides a quiet learning environment with newer computers that allow seamless interaction between the student and instructor. With the entire course being offered online, it adds grace to the class because an instructor is able to answer questions at his own pace instead of having to pause for a raised hand.  In addition, all the classes are recorded, which makes it easy to go back in and review what has been taught.  Overall I am very impressed with the learning environment New Horizons has provided.

Hoss was a wonderful instructor who knew how to keep the group focused and driven throughout the course for MS Project. The team felt they have learned the skills they need to utilize the application well.

Peter de Lastic, NHCentral

CompTIA IT Fundamentals+
"Peter was an excellent instructor. I didn't know what to expect at first, but after the first 2 hours day 1, this guy knows his stuff (to put it mildly). He used real life examples as they related to the subject matter, occasional humor, and was very time conscious. Kept things moving along, took more time for explanation when needed. I was a little ... no ... a lot disappointed when he said he was not teaching my next training. I hope to enjoy the next instructor as I did you. GREAT JOB SIR!!!!”

Charles Watkins, NHCentral

10961 Automating Administration with Windows PowerShell
"Charles provided a very engaging and genuinely upbeat atmosphere on a daily basis. He is obviously interested in the technology and wants to share that with his class, and that is clearly his goal throughout the week."

Lynn Trapp, NHCentral

ITIL4 Foundation
"Exceptional instructor, very knowledgeable and personal and approachable"

Mona Cross, NHCentral

Outlook 2016, Part 1
"When I logged in this morning, I was excited to see the Miss Mona was my instructor again. This is the third class that I have had with her, so I knew that it was going to be a great class!"

Eric Satterfield, NHCentral

Excel 2016, Part 1
"Eric did a great job instructing and making the class informative and fun!"

Dan Russell, NHCentral

PRINCE2 Foundation
"Dan did a good job and shared his knowledge of the subject and used real world examples to help us understand. I enjoyed the class."

Hamish MacFarlane, NHCentral

Excel 2016, Part 1
"Hamish MacFarlane was a very engaged instructor, encouraged questions, answered questions in a timely manner and made sure to tell everyone they were doing a great job and a few students who had issues with Excel, he helped them and made sure everyone else had something to practice in the meantime. I would take a class with him again.”

Charles Watkins, NHCentral

10985 Intro to SQL Databases
"Of the 4 New Horizons courses I've taken Charles was the best instructor. He made learning applicable to real world scenarios and presented the subject matter in a manner that made learning fun. I hope the next course I take through New Horizons is taught by Charles. His approach to teaching made the material stick as well as made me very comfortable with the topic."

Mona Cross, NHCentral

Time Management
"I think Mona was outstanding, I wish I had co-workers like her. She is a keeper.”

Emil Rodgers, NHCentral

10994 Data Analysis Fundamentals with Excel
"Excellent instruction for all learning levels. Great sense of humor that made him very relatable and easy to understand. I like how he explained the WHAT and the WHY in detail before the demonstrations, so I understood what the goal was. I've had instructors that just show what to click and that doesn't help at all if I don't understand why I am doing something. Emil was great at explaining all of that.”

Peter de Lastic, NHCentral

CompTIA IT Fundamentals+
"Pete was awesome. He shared great, relevant stories, real-world practical examples, and even some wisdom that was tangential to the class but gave a richer context for the material being studied. He has a nice sense of humor and made the class super enjoyable. Great instructor!"

Charles Watkins, NHCentral

10982 Supporting/Troubleshooting Windows 10
"Charles needs to be commended to the highest degree for his training abilities. Not only is he a technical Jedi, he is extremely personable. He kept our attention the entire time with his energetic personality, delightful banter and crowd participation.”

Brian Cochenour, NHCentral

MS-100 Microsoft 365 Identity and Services
"I was concerned about taking this class because the instructor in the prerequisite class talked over my head a lot. I appreciated that Brian explained everything clearly, in easy-to-understand terms for a novice and used a lot of visuals to help explain. That, along with his expert knowledge, make him an exceptional online instructor."

Karen Botwinik, NHCentral

Adobe Photoshop CC, Part 1
"Karen was amazing. As someone who had never used Photoshop before, Karen was super helpful and went at a fantastic pace. She answered all of my questions and never made me feel like I was silly for asking anything. She took the time to try and get to know each of us, which really helped make this feel like it was a team effort between all of the participants and the instructor. Overall, she made the experience more enjoyable than I could have imagined.”

Richard Morgan, NHCentral

55123 Writing Reports with Report Builder & SSRS
"Richie taught with enthusiasm, which is difficult in a normal setting, but I imagine even harder when teaching virtually. I was interested in what he had to say, and he held my attention. It was also clear that he knew exactly what he was talking about and was able to come up with examples that weren't shown in the text."

Jim Lifter, NHCentral

2016/2019 Data Analysis with Pivot Tables
"Awesome instructor! Hope to have him back for expert level excel classes!”

Emil Rodgers, NHCentral

20779 Analyzing Data with Excel
"Emil is a fantastic, engaging instructor who makes it easy to understand the material. He was very interactive with the labs and made it easier to understand.”

Charles Watkins, NHCentral

"What I liked about Charles is he was very patient with questions, liked to provide value add comments and examples. I do wish he had done all 5 days, even though I thoroughly enjoyed Kirk."

Marty Shepard, NHCentral

SQL Querying Fundamentals, Part 2
"Marty is a very organized, polished trainer utilizing this method of teaching online. The class was on time, even with questions or issues. It was a great class."

Alan Harrah, NHCentral

"Alan brought real world scenarios to the material. His method for remembering Symmetric Crypto was great. I can't forget it now. Thank you for that!!! That is just one of the many items in this class that he helped me look at in a different manner.”
