About Us

What we do

We are here to help you become the best technical trainer and presenter that you can be. We offer presentation and instructional skills training, small group and one-on-one coaching and mentoring, and a variety of support services for technical trainers and presenters.

We are a Microsoft-approved vendor for instructional skills certification that is a prerequisite for becoming a Microsoft Certified Trainer (MCT).

Who we are is managed by Michael Corkery and Heather Severino. Both Heather and Michael are seasoned MCTs. We are active in our technical communities.

Why we do what we do

MCTs and other technical trainers and presenters are often more successful when they have mentors and guides. We owe a lot of our success to those who pushed us out of our comfort zones and helped us learn what it takes to succeed. is a partnership between Custom Software Solutions, Inc. and TeachUTech. We operate as a "pay it forward" proposition. That is, it is not our goal to make a profit from any products or services that we provide. It is our intention to reinvest any proceeds so that we can develop tools and services to assist with future generations of technical trainers and presenters.
