Global Knowledge is an independent IT training company. Delegates from around the world can join classes remotely using web technology and high definition video. Most courses are of one week's duration. IT professionals who develop and maintain IT systems require training and certification in the specific technologies that they are working with. The certification generally needs to be renewed periodically. The course content and the certification of the courses offered is determined by the companies that sell the technology, the IT vendors. The vendors produce certification pathways. The vendors also produce the course materials and text books. It is these courses that Global Knowledge is licensed by the IT vendors, to deliver. Assessment for certification is undertaken through on-line examinations determined by the vendors, moderated by a third party and undertaken at secure centres. In addition to the courses determined by the vendors, bespoke courses are also provided to meet the needs of individual companies that may feature elements from a variety of different courses and vendors. Global Knowledge has recently won a number of awards. The achievements include IBM Global Training Provider of the Year 2014, Microsoft Learning Partner of the Year Award 2013 (UK), VMware Europe Middle East and Africa (EMEA) Region Training Partner of the Year 2014 and Cisco EMEA Region Learning Partner of the Year 2013.
