Q: My company’s training budget is very limited. Are there any assistance programs available?
A:

MTC works to provide high quality training at the best price. We are extremely competitive in our pricing. In some instances there are funds to assist with customized training programs. These grant-type programs are available for both new and incumbent employees. Grant funds may be available to support pre-employment assessment, pre-production training and skill upgrades training.

Q: Can I use a credit card to pay for training?
A:

Most employers prefer to receive an invoice after the first day/night of class; however, we do accept Visa, MasterCard and Discover. We also accept checks.

Q: Will each employee I send receive a certificate for completing the class?
A:

Yes, for many of our customized courses, a certificate of completion is given for all attendees completing the full class. If anyone cannot attend every session, the certificate will reflect the number of hours attended. If this is a requirement for continuing education credit, this should be discussed in the planning stages to ensure that we provide the correct documentation of the training.

Q: Will I still be charged if I need to cancel a class?
A:

Both parties will sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) once an agreement of training, dates and price are reached. In the MOU, the cancelation policy will identify the amount, if any, that will be billed should a cancelation occur.

Q: How do I know who is teaching my class?
A:

We will work with you to understand not only the technical skills that the instructor needs to have but also the type of instructor that is best suited for the employees you need trained.

Q: Do you have handicap accessible facilities?
A:

We have several different classrooms and computer labs on campus, all of which are handicap accessible. If you would like to provide us with specific information on your needs, we will provide the best possible learning environment for you.

Q: I am not familiar with your campus. How do I know where my employees should park and where the classroom will be?
A:

You will receive a confirmation email to forward to each of your employees who will attend the training containing directions to campus, parking and the classroom.

Q: If the weather causes Meridian Technology Center to close the campus, how will my employees be notified?
A:

We have an automated phone messaging system that will contact any person currently enrolled in a class about any school closings. If you have provided us with the names and phone numbers of the employees who will be attending, they will receive the automated message. Oklahoma City television stations are notified of our school closings.
