Global Knowledge Wins Five Stars for Microsoft Training
Cary, N.C. - November 18, 2010 - Global Knowledge has received top honors and two Five-Star Awards for its Microsoft training in Redmond magazine's 2010 Readers' Choice Awards. This is the eighth year in a row Redmond readers have recognized Global Knowledge with top awards for training.
This year, Global Knowledge scored better than any other Microsoft Independent Software Vendor (ISV) for Best Windows Certification-Based Boot Camp and for Best Online, Disk-Based, or Instructor-Led Training, picking up a Five-Star Award in both categories. The Five-Star Award, new to the 2010 Readers' Choice Awards program, was created to recognize products that have won in the same category for five consecutive years.
"Student endorsement of our Microsoft training is the highest validation and reflects the top quality and positive learning experience we strive to provide for our students," said Michael Fox, Global Knowledge Senior Vice President. "We are delighted to be recognized by Redmond magazine readers for the eighth consecutive year," he added.
In the competitive Best Windows Certification-Based Boot Camp category, Global Knowledge was given the top ISV spot by 33% of Redmond's readership, just behind Microsoft's own training. "None of the other vendors in this category came close to the top two," wrote Lee Pender, executive editor of features for Redmond magazine.
Global Knowledge delivers a full schedule of Microsoft training courses worldwide and has received awards from Redmond magazine readers every year since 2003.
