- Date: 17 June, 2019
Global Knowledge has been recognized as the 2019 Microsoft Learning Partner of the year, Global Knowledge announces today. 'It is a great honor to be working with Microsoft around the world to help our mutual customers build the skills they need for career and organizational success.', Global Knowledge CEO Todd Johnstone says.
Almost 200 students per month
Microsoft granted Global Knowledge the award because of their innovation and excellent implementation of customer solutions based on Microsoft-technology. 'Every month about 200 people follow a Microsoft training course at Global Knowledge Belgium', Microsoft business developer Frank van de Laarschot says. 'Customers add value to their organization by taking a course.'
According to Microsoft the winners of the Partner of the Year Awards are trendsetters in their area of expertise. 'They make more possible for customers around the world. I'm honored to congratulate each winner and finalist', Gavriella Schuster, corporate vice-president of Microsoft Corp. says.
The biggest Microsoft-change of the year has impacted the certifications. Microsoft has changed these into role-based certifications. The idea behind this is that role-based certifications are a better match with the role you fulfill at your job. In the past a certification was mainly about the application you were working with. By doing research into roles in the workplace, Microsoft has decided which skills you need to have.
Still wondering what a role-based certification is? Our business developer Frank van de Laarschot explains it all in this video.
