From then to now
ALC was founded by Zika Milenkovic and Catalina Lechner in 1994. We held our first course Understanding Data Communications in Sydney on 7-9 March 1994.
But in a sense, the story started much earlier when, back in 1981, Zika was co-founder of MTE Management Technology Education. MTE specialised in bring quality information on latest developments in technology to IT and business professionals and rapidly grew to become the leading technology training provider in Australia in the 80s. A lot of the seminars were presented by experts that we flew in from USA or Europe but we also developed a lot of courses using local talent. Names such as Matt Whelan, Les Bell, Robert Graham, Rod Whitworth, Bill Bolton. These courses were so good that by 1986 we were exporters with many MTE courses being run in London, Dublin, Amsterdam, Stockholm and Singapore.
