Company History

T&E Associates, a US based corporation, was founded in 1993 when former GE professional trainers acquired the training arm of GE consulting to form Training & Education Associates, Inc., a small business primarily offering software system training. Over the next two decades, T&E expanded its services to include Help Desk support, Technical Documentation, Human Resource and Learning Management Systems and worldwide Data Entry & Analysis services.

T&E has cultivated a team of experienced staff with a wide range of expertise to provide Six Sigma performance services customized to each client’s individual needs.

T&E Team Approach

We recognize the need to respond rapidly to unexpected changes in demand, which is why we offer flexible capacity. Our service teams scale up or down as needed to ensure that clients consistently receive the level of service they want without ever paying for more than they need. T&E provides clients with access to a team of professionals with more than 90 years of combined experience and expertise in software system training, support and documentation.
