Founded on July 25, 2013 by Jim Trakas in Independence, Ohio with a vision for improving the lives of people through practical education, American Online Learning Center exists to provide value added life learning experiences to people who take these courses.
We are all taught to “learn a lesson” when life does not go as we wish it to, and this Learning Center will do just that. Why a “Learning Center?” Life is a series of learning opportunities, and with the right information and tools at your disposal, everyone can succeed. Learning is a lifetime quest, and this Learning Center exists to satisfy the search for knowledge.
Each lesson is categorized by its title, and incorporates high-quality video, informational slides, print-outs, challenging questions that require correct answers to move forward, and more to provide a comprehensive learning experience. To be convenient and customer friendly, you can learn at your own pace, and when you have successfully completed the course, can print off a certificate, or have the information contained in the certificate emailed directly to you.
This Learning Center is much different than other corrective educational opportunities. We utilize real professionals, not actors or academics, but real experts with hands on learning that provide real world insights to our learners. These programs are diverse, and not slick Hollywood productions, they are from the streets of your community, and highly educational in nature, and on purpose not “entertaining.” You are here to learn a lesson, and a lesson will be taught that will be life altering in a meaningful way.
What is our unique corporate symbol? The founder’s father, SSgt. Peter W. Trakas, fought with the United States Army in the Second World War. His 95th Infantry Division was assigned to General George S. Patton’s 3rd Army, so the “A” stands for the name of the company, as well as the pride of the U.S. Army, the 3rd Army. Patton stood for greatness and courage. So do we, and this small tribute shows our desire to be a learning center with ideals as great as the liberators of Europe. The shield is the American Union shield, long used in American history as a symbol of a great nation. Together, they form the identity of a great company committed to improving the lives of its customers.
