We’re Different.

SkillForge is a different kind of training company. Based just outside of Chicago, we deliver training to companies, institutions and individuals across North America. We believe that learning requires interaction and participation (you can’t ask questions when you’re watching a video!) And that much of what a student learns happens after class is over – when they try out what they’ve learned in real-world situations. So in all of our classes, whether self-paced, online or in-person, students always have access to an instructor – both during and after class. Our instructors are experts in their field with years of hands-on experience and multiple certifications in the subjects they teach. For them – and for us, training isn’t just a job. It’s a calling.

Access to Instructors

I really enjoy the hands on nature of the courses, without having to travel. It makes for a very economical and productive learning experience. The access to the instructors after the class is a great benefit as well. I always plan for a challenging project after the class to take advantage of their guidance!

I have been working with (the) course content for almost 10 years, and was still able to learn something new. Our instructor was clear and concise and was careful not to go off topic even when we students could very easily do that. He kept us on track and ON TIME! Awesome!

Wonderful Experience

I had a wonderful experience in the class. I had no experience with Crystal Reports at the beginning of the week and now I feel comfortable enough to create basic to intermediate reports all on my own. Joel was a wonderful instructor and provided real life feedback and training to better assist me with learning the new skills.
