PLEASE NOTE: The certification training classes offered by M.O.V. Training Services are fast paced, intensive training classes on a sophisticated software program. These classes ARE NOT classes on how to use Microsoft Windows. Students who register for these classes are expected to have at least basic skills on a Windows 7 or newer computer (note, Windows 7 is used on the computers you will use in the classroom). If you don't know the difference between a right and left mouse click, these classes are not for you. You are informed here that the class WILL NOT slow down to accommodate students who can't navigate file paths or perform other basic Windows computer functions. No refund of tuition will be made to students who don't heed this information.

"ASD Sponsored class" means that the class is sponsored by a Honeywell Authorized Systems Distributor (ASD). This is significant because the ASD that is sponsoring the class is responsible for handling all class registrations, setting and collecting the tuition fee, and providing a location for the class. The ASD is also given the authority to deny as they see fit the registration of any given student. ASD class tuitions may be different than the tuition fees listed on this web site. All ASD classes will use Vernon Petersen of M.O.V. Training Services as the instructor. 

  M.O.V. Training Services sponsored classes are sponsored by the me, Vernon Petersen and my company, M.O.V. Training Services.
