About Northwest Computer Learning Center

Northwest Computer Learning Center is a locally owned company and has been a leader in hands-on personal computer training classes since 1983. In that time, NWCLC has trained thousands of professionals across a wide spectrum of computer applications. Our hands-on classes are small, always with one student per computer. Our main facility is located in Salem, Oregon, but we train throughout the Northwest.

Instructional Methods

Classes at Northwest Computer Learning Center are highly participative workshops.  You will have an opportunity to explore topics, issues, and program features and to practice skills throughout the day.  Most importantly, you will be able to ask questions and to interact with your instructor as well as other students in order to ensure your full understanding of the material.

NWCLC guides you through software products in pursuit of objectives that are established through consideration of the most immediately applicable skills and knowledge and not just the “bells and whistles” of the software.  We measure our success by your ability on the job when you return from training.  We follow a quick-pace in our workshops.  Expect a high-content, high-involvement program.

Course Manuals

To help you learn and retain new knowledge and new skills, Northwest Computer Learning Center will provide you with a comprehensive course manual for your reference after the workshop.  In our manuals there are explanations, step-by-step exercises, definitions, and many other features that create a valuable resource for you. If you would find them beneficial, we will also provide you with copies of the files you use while in class.

The latest ideas from our teaching and development staff are incorporated continuously into our manuals.  In addition, the constant feedback of our customers is invaluable in making our manual the best teaching material for learning PC applications.  Our focus is on realistic, practical material you can apply on the job.

Most of the classes at NWCLC are held Monday - Friday. Classes begin at 9:00 am and end at 4:00 pm. However, by request, Northwest Computer Learning Center will hold classes on weekends and in the evenings. For more information please contact us by email:, or telephone (503) 362-4818.
