  • A Warm Welcome to 2018DateThu Jan 25, 2018 11:04 am
    Topic by OTC. Forum: OTC to Students

    We have had our very necessary Christmas and New Year's break. It has been a very welcomed break for our Staff who work tirelessly throughout the year.

    We now look forward wholeheartedly to continuing our work, providing fast and hopefully efficient service to all our existing and new students throughout 2018.

    In this light, we welcome you all to OTC for the next stage of your career.

  • 30 Years of Training HistoryDateWed Jan 10, 2018 1:35 pm
    Topic by OTC. Forum: OTC's Blog

    2018 marks 30 extremely enjoyable years of OTC's existence. It seems like only yesterday when our first group of students walked through our doors! How exciting that moment was, not only for us but also for our Girls as this marked a turning point when they could finally get a new career as a Legal Secretary. After years of trying to break into this rather lucrative and interesting world of law, they finally started their journey with us. In those days, they could only get into a law firm through the kindness of the hearts of solicitors who had time to bother giving them vital training skills to work there. Since 1988, OTC opened the doors to the legal sector and started training general secretaries and PAs and turned them into Legal Secretaries.

    The rest is history - 30 years of it!

    So to all OTC's Students who we have trained and who now have a new career in law - we Remember You All!

    Hello Everyone

    Our usual Christmas update for 2017.

    Firstly, we graciously thank you for all your good wishes, compliments and kind reviews throughout the year.

    There seem to be an unusual number of sick-days this month and with staff holidays, our admin capabilities have been severely reduced.

    We will also be closed on Thursday 21, December 2017 and re-open on Monday 8 January 2018. We ask for your patience please over this period and we wish you all a very Happy Holiday.

    We shall see you in the new year with renewed energy to continue our efforts in 2018.

  • Lost for Words!DateFri Sep 08, 2017 2:03 pm
    Topic by OTC. Forum: OTC to Students

    We have all watched the horrors unfolding in the Northern Caribbean due to the Hurricane Season. These videos and photographs do bring home just how fragile we all are!

    The Team @ OTC extends its most sincere sympathy (sounds so inadequate at this time) to all our students, friends, colleagues and everyone affected on the islands of Turks and Caicos, British Virgin Islands, Antigua, Anguilla, St Kitts and Nevis. We extend our further sympathies to all other islanders who have been so brutally ravaged by this force of nature and as Hurricane Irma and the upcoming others, look set to bring further devastation elsewhere, our prayers and thoughts include the affected everywhere!

    The human spirit can be resilient, caring, capable and with so many homeless, jobless and despondent, we hope that this resilience kicks in with every brick, bucket and spade used in restoring lost communities.

    The Hurricane Season of 2017 will be etched in the memory for an extremely long time. We hope that the light at the end of the tunnel shines again very soon!

    For graphic images, go to our Picture Gallery....

    This is how you can help the victims of Hurricane Irma

    Topic by OTC. Forum: OTC's Blog

    This is a quote which I have found very interesting and I would like to share it with you. We may not all believe it but it sure does give food for thought....

    "One of the biggest challenges in the world is that everybody tries to do a good job at work but they are going through some antiquated training process that is just not equipping them to be good at what they do. The better way to learn is to look at how the brain works. Some human beings do not do well sitting in a classroom getting crammed with hours of information. They learn if you give them bite-sized chunks of knowledge and repeat them over time".

    Topic by OTC. Forum: OTC to Students

    Hi, just an update on our summer calendar for 2017.

    Since we do not close entirely from July to September, we still have to honour holiday entitlements. As such our Colleges will be operating a reduced Admin service from 1 August 2017 until 4 September 2017.

    We hope you will all have a fantastic summer and we thank you very much for your kindness, continued support and patience.

  • Are Search Engines Rigged? Part 2DateWed Jun 28, 2017 1:09 pm
    Topic by OTC. Forum: OTC's Blog

    Since writing my views in March 2017 on whether search engines are rigged, there has been some startling, if not surprising, updates.

    The European Commission states that it has been investigating this very fact for the past 7 years and that its findings provide evidence of rigging. Google has been the main source of their investigation as most searches are being done through that medium. The following is an extract from the Report from the EU.

    Google Hit With Record-Breaking $2.7B Antitrust Fine From EU

    “What Google has done is illegal under EU antitrust rules,” said Vestager. “It denied other companies the chance to compete on the merits and to innovate. And most importantly, it denied European consumers a genuine choice of services and the full benefits of innovation.”

    "On the back of the finding that Google is the dominant player in the European search engine market, the EU regulator is further investigating how else the company may have abused its position, specifically in its provision of maps, images and information on local services.
    The commission’s decision, following a seven-year probe into Google’s dominance in searches and smartphones, suggests the company may need to fundamentally rethink the way it operates. It is also now liable to face civil actions for damages by any person or business affected by its anti-competitive behaviour.

    Google has denied the claims and has indicated it may appeal the ruling."

  • Are Search Engines Rigged?DateFri Mar 03, 2017 10:16 am
    Topic by OTC. Forum: OTC's Blog

    One has to ask this question as for the past 7 years, there does not seem to be any changes on the first page of some of the so called most popular search engines! Why is that? Are there no new comers?

    Not that I am complaining but when one entry is repeated at least 4 times on the same page, one must start questioning how independent and trustworthy are these search engines. Is it really simply following the myriad of instructions laid down by those who run these engines to get a business listed? Is it that some entries are paying to remain on certain pages forever?

    It is certainly time for search engines to become more transparent and certainly time for us researchers to do a little bit more work and look beyond the first page.

    Saying this now, will probably result in my listing being vanquished

  • Christmas 2016DateFri Dec 02, 2016 12:22 pm
    Topic by OTC. Forum: OTC to Students

    As 2016 comes to an end, many of us will be reflecting on the past year, on our achievements, our shortcomings and maybe how to re-invent ourselves for 2017. Whatever 2016 brought for us, I am sure we are all truly thankful.

    Now as we look ahead with renewed vigour, there may be things which we can improve, family ties which can be mended or forging a new career path.

    We give thanks for all our many blessings during 2016 and for the gift that we can continue to impart globally. We wish all our students a most wonderful holiday season and thanks again for your continued support throughout 2016.

  • A whole lot of sandDateTue Sep 13, 2016 1:42 pm
    Topic by OTC. Forum: OTC's Blog

    So Summer 2016 is over and hopefully most, if not all of us, had something to smile about. For me, I was able to have a little summer break during July of this year. During my travels, I was lucky to come across an exhibition made entirely of sand. I shall share some of these extraordinary sand sculptures with you. See how many you can recognise among this little lot by going to our Picture Gallery entitled Sand.

    But now the frivolity is over and I must get back to work. See you later.

    Topic by OTC. Forum: OTC to Students


    We are again at this time of year when staff holidays take its toll. In this light, our admin department will be operating much slower than usual from 19 July 2016 to 1 August 2016. As we are not closing totally, you will notice the slow down and we apologise in advance. We wish that you will all have a great summer, return rejuvenated and full of vigor for the opportunities ahead.

  • Christmas Holidays 2015DateFri Nov 27, 2015 10:16 am
    Topic by OTC. Forum: OTC to Students

    Hi Everybody!

    Another year draws to a close and what an interesting year this was!

    We thank all our students for their continued support and our pledge to continue our efforts on their behalf continues. We must, however, take a little break so our offices will be winding down from December 14, 2015 until January 6, 2016. We will remain, in a very limited capacity, to deal with administration but our usual quick response will be slower than usual.

    We take this opportunity of wishing everyone a very happy holiday and a very happy Christmas to those of us who celebrate this season.

    See you again from 6 January 2016.

    Bye for now.

  • Back to Work!DateTue Sep 01, 2015 6:42 pm
    Topic by OTC. Forum: OTC's Blog

    Before the pressure of work returns, I will write a few words of encouragement for those of us who need any such encouragement.

    It seems that everyone threw caution to the wind and took a well deserved summer holiday this year. After working all the hours to ensure that their companies weathered the severe downturn of the past few years, this would be a very welcome break.

    Now its back to work and to thoughts of improving career prospects. I seem to be writing about this ever so often but how true this is at this time of the year. After relaxing for a couple of carefree weeks, it is not hard to imagine that this is the case for many. Some may have endured jobs simply to keep afloat, pay the necessary bills and other living expenses but if truth be known, several will yearn for better and more. Getting a new qualification in law could be the answer. This may not only gain you a promotion but it should also give further job satisfaction. Employers must be secure in the knowledge that their staff is suitably qualified.

    From the level of interested candidates so far, it seems that many are in agreement. This is not a hobby, this is a career-changing opportunity!
