Instructor: Ken Crawshaw, New Horizons


“In the classroom I like to work hard and play hard: Using word play to give students a trigger to remember important information. I approach the class as if I am in the business of “Edutainment”, telling stories and keeping the students actively engaged in the material.”

A few years later Crawshaw was offered a job with DMR Financial. As the Networks Administrator, he oversaw: Indianapolis, Phoenix and Freemont California. The combination of financial and medical organizations he had worked for had given him a great knowledge base to provide high quality training with and understanding of real world situation the his clients solve each day.
