So you may have been wondering where I’ve been for the last few weeks?

Well, I’ve spent most of my free time upgrading The Automation School’s website and server, and re-launched the site last week.

One of the most noticeable changes is the site now has a completely new look, as well as a new dynamic menu system.

This new system presents different menus to visitors and students, providing visitors with quick links to enrollment options, while providing students with quick links to courses, progress, and completion certificates.

The new layout also takes better advantage of widescreen monitors, with the ability to collapse the left hand menu to provide more room for lesson content.

But the biggest upgrade is that now students can take course lessons in any order they wish.

Believe it or not, this was our students most requested feature.

As it turns out, many new students are already working on projects, and they wanted to be able to jump directly into lessons related to topics they currently had questions about.

And while that was one of our biggest goals for the upgrade, another was to also upgrade the hardware our server ran on.

Now runs on a state-of-the-art dedicated quad core server, insuring hundreds of students can simultaneously access lessons quickly and efficiently.

So if you haven’t visited my automation training site in awhile, please take a moment to check it out at and let me know what you think 🙂

Until next time, Peace ✌️
