Simply stated

“ACDC exists to keep Independent Shops in Business” 

“We make sure your 12 volt brain is well developed and then we create a high voltage brain to use along with it. Where the two brains match up the learning is easy but sometimes ACDC will break the connection between the two so your 12 volt brain is not used on a high voltage problem.”

Craig Van Batenburg, the CEO and founder, is good at taking the complex and making it easy to understand.  ACDC creates unique classes that are delivered in person world wide. ACDC also uses the latest technologies to deliver training and education over the world wide web.

We believe people learn in many ways so we are flexible and creative. Click About us to know more.
