Michael Belfry is the principal training consultant at onsite-training.com and conducts many of our courses. Michael has been involved in technology training in one form or another since 1997.
From 1997 – 2000, Michael worked as an instructor for various corporate training organizations and colleges in Toronto and southwestern Ontario. Providing training in the Microsoft Office suite of applications, he acquired in-depth expertise in each application and developed his unique and engaging presentation style.
In 2000, Michael made the shift to technical training. Using Microsoft Official Curriculum materials, he provided courses designed to help network administrators acquire and maintain various Microsoft Certified Professional designations (MCP, MCSA, MCSE, etc.).
In 2002, Michael took a break from training and joined the Canadian Diabetes Association, in Toronto’s vibrant non-profit sector. Working as a network administrator and project manager, Michael was responsible for the association’s computers, servers, printers, and network infrastructure. He was a key contributor to various IT-related projects including the relocation of head office’s substantial technology assets and the selection and implementation of a voice over IP PBX and telephone system.
In 2004, Michael returned to application training with a strong focus on Microsoft Excel training and Microsoft Project. Initially offering training under the Michael Belfry & Associates banner, the company was rebranded in 2013 as onsite-training.com.
For large training engagements, where courses are offered over an extended period of time, onsite-training.com will utilize a network of carefully-selected instructors. When there is a strategic advantage for our clients, we engage experienced, dynamic instructors that deliver solid value.
What is onsite-training.com?
The big difference between onsite-training.com and a traditional computer training centre is all of our courses are delivered onsite – in our clients’ training rooms or meeting rooms.
Is the training interactive?
The training is very interactive. In each section of a course, our instructors introduce a new concept, provide examples that are relevant to the clients’ business, and lead the group through exercises designed to demonstrate practical techniques for using the application. It’s this “hands on” aspect of our training that really boosts knowledge retention.
If I explain a concept to you, hopefully it’ll make sense. If I provide an example in the context of your business, the concept becomes relevant. If you apply a new skill right away, it’ll change the way you work.

Do courses come with manuals?
All of our full-day courses come with printed manuals, practice files, and 30 days of post-training support. Our clients find the student manuals very helpful. If they need to review a topic after the training, they can turn to the appropriate section, and get the information they need very quickly. If they still have questions, they’re welcome to contact us directly – and we’ll do our best to get them pointed in the right direction.
What do clients need to provide?
Most of the time our clients reserve a meeting room with a projector and participants bring laptops to the training session. Some larger companies or government organizations have dedicated computer training facilities but, if you don’t have a training room, we can bring everything. We have projectors and laptops we can bring with us.
