Xtreme Learning from NETg


You have been waiting patiently, and now it’s here! We finally have over 700 information technology titles available to you from NETg. NETg calls their online courses “Xtreme Learning” as it is the ultimate opportunity for you to gain the information you need. These courses are web browser-based which means there is no player to download and install on your local machine. Your account is already setup-your login name and password to take these courses are exactly the same as your email login and password!  You can choose what you want to learn about by customizing your very own training plan and then you set the pace for each course! A special feature worthy of noting is the Search and Select option. You can search for information on a particular subject, and then select the information about that subject which will satisfy your needs. Now you can find out what you need, when you need it! All 700+ NETg Xtreme Learning courses are geared toward a certification track, if desired. If you wish to be Microsoft Office User Specialist (MOUS) certified, here is your chance!

Even if you have never accessed NETg courses before, you will have to click on “Modify Plan” to get started. One convenient feature with NETg is that you cannot add the same course more than once to your individualized training plan. (However, you can take the course as many times as you want.)  For more instructions on how login to NETg, please visit

Special Note on Legos®:

We will continue awarding you with Legos® as you pass courses in NETg. However, we are still trying to determine the logistics on the reports we will be receiving from NETg containing this information. Please print out your passing scores and keep track of them just in case I miss chance to award you your Lego(s)®!

Also, please note in advance, ETCS is getting a makeover on the web. We have a new face which is still in development. There will be many new features designed to make your technical life easier! Stay tuned…there will be more news about it in the next issue of InnerCircuits.

For more information on NETg or courses for certification, please contact me, ETCS by email ( or by phone (573/882-2096).
