Learning Tree Grows IT Training Playbook with New Partnership Strategy
Initial Third-Party Offerings to Include Cisco Curriculum
HERNDON, VA – Dec. 14, 2016
Learning Tree International, Inc. (OTCQX: LTRE) today announced a new worldwide partnership strategy involving third-party solutions to better provide comprehensive, end-to-end training solutions for IT organizations worldwide. The company will initially expand its course offerings in North America to include 12 Cisco courses spanning networking fundamentals such as routing and switching, network security and wireless networking. A suite of Adobe training offerings — including titles on Illustrator, Photoshop, and other Adobe programs — will also be available in the next two weeks.
"Learning Tree is proud to expand our offerings, boosting our ability to help IT organizations tackle their workforce development challenges with blended learning solutions," said Richard A. Spires, CEO of Learning Tree International. “This is a categorical change from Learning Tree’s historical approach of developing and delivering vendor-independent content, and allows Learning Tree to best serve the needs of our clients by growing our playbook strategically.”
This new partnership strategy supports Learning Tree’s commitment to providing full-service, blended learning solutions to IT organizations. From vendor-independent training and industry-leading certifications, to a full suite of workforce optimization services — these new options ensure Learning Tree can serve as the #1 provider of IT and workforce solutions for business and government organizations worldwide.
"As we shifted our strategy to include third-party solutions to ensure we’re meeting our clients’ needs, we knew that Cisco-certified content would be a part of this new approach," said Magnus Nylund, COO of Learning Tree. “The ability to attain Cisco certification is important to our clients, and we want to help them achieve that as part of our end-to-end workforce optimization solutions offerings. Our goal is to offer resources our clients need beyond certification as well, including complimentary learning materials like webinars, video blogs, ebooks, and more.”
Learning Tree will continue to support the enrollment and attendance processes for these Cisco courses —as well as future third-party courses — and will continue to serve as a one-stop knowledge resource for clients at all stages of their learning journey.
Learning Tree will continue to grow their library of offerings through in-house development of vendor-independent courseware, in addition to this new strategy. Learning Tree’s new, multi-pronged partnership expansion strategy will include:
- Third-Party Content: Offering courseware from industry-leading vendors like Cisco, Adobe and others
- Enhanced Curricula: Strategically adding vendor content to current Learning Tree offerings to better support the client learning path
- Certification Partnerships: Exploring opportunities to work with certification organizations that don’t have an established training channel
- Reseller Partnerships: Exploring opportunities to expand client base via resellers to ensure outreach of Learning Tree’s proprietary, award-winning courses
