Blue Chip Extends Partnership with Global Knowledge to Offer 1200 IT Courses Nationwide

12th June 2014

IT specialist and leading IT training provider, Blue Chip is pleased to announce an enhanced partnership with training experts Global Knowledge (GK), heralding changes and further expansion to an already extensive training services portfolio, whilst adding further locations and Virtual Learning to those seeking first class IT training from anywhere in the UK. 

Anthony Green, Sales & Marketing Director at Blue Chip explains: “By extending our existing partnership with Global Knowledge we now offer more than 1200 instructor-led courses covering multiple leading IT vendors, with training facilities in Leeds, Wokingham, Bristol and London in addition to Blue Chip’s existing facilities at Poole and Southampton.  A key enhancement is Blue Chip’s utilisation of Global Knowledge’s unique Class-Connect delivery method that facilitates the delivery of high-level courses that have previously been limited to London-based training centres. 

“By deploying a high quality HD mobile training teleconferencing suite connecting to the classrooms in Poole, Southampton or even direct to a client site via a high capacity managed  network, delegates receive a premium, real time experience and the same hands –on, interactive learning experience, without being limited to London.  Instructors presenting from one location and delegates attending from other centres are able to interact with the instructor and other delegates using video and voice conferencing.”

This is a significant development for Blue Chip, whose training is renowned across the industry with both vendors and delegates.  The additional training centre locations and virtual learning enables Blue Chip to offer training on a national basis in line with its growing national footprint and customer base. 

In particular, ‘Virtual Learning’ appeals to businesses as it negates the need for extra travel time and expenses per delegate, whilst offering greater flexibility, increased choice of courses and greater date selection. Delegates connect from home, the office or anywhere to a course elsewhere in the UK and can see and hear both the instructor and other delegates in real-time.

The 1200+ courses available include Microsoft, VMware, Cisco, Citrix, ITIL and PRINCE2, as well as bespoke training.  Delivered by Blue Chip’s team of professional, passionate and experienced mentors in a format to suit any business - instructor-led classroom training, virtual classroom connectivity, onsite-learning, or enhanced classroom connect technology. Blue Chip is also a Prometric and Pearson VUE Testing Centre for professional examination qualifications.
