From Another Student:

"Bruce has created a really extensive course about Access. This course is built in bite size bits and every section teaches you an additional function in Access. The best thing about this course is that it is very low key and is really designed to help out the non-programmer. VBA might be very intimidating but this course shows you everything. The pace is good and every part is being explained in an excellent manner. I highly recommend this course especially if you want to learn and while learning create a wonderful tool that truly is useful." - Nicky Wong

Instructor Biography

Bruce Myron, Productivity Specialist

Hello, my name is Bruce Myron. I am a self employed Access programmer and general computer consultant to small and medium sized businesses. I got into programming because I was tired of all the jargon most programmers use and how they don't seem to care about business.

"Technology is great but I've always been more interested in how it can be used to make companies more profitable." - Bruce

I live in Portland, Oregon and have many long term relationships with local businesses. Many of the systems I have built for these companies are critical to the success of the business. My specialty is taking the needs of the business and translating them into a system that facilitates, rather than obstructs, what they are trying to do.

I have also spent time as a full time trainer providing group classes on the Microsoft Office programs.

In my opinion the computer industry as a whole is a colossal failure in helping businesses solve their problems. I listen carefully to the needs expressed by my clients and then deliver the simplest, most flexible solution possible.

Over the years I have found that many of the techniques I have used enabled me to survive and thrive when many others have tried the computer programming business and failed.

My goal is to show my students how to create systems that business will value and that will create long term income.
