The Global Knowledge Network Advantage

Global Knowledge Network has a global delivery system for its products and services. The company has
28 subsidiaries, and offers its programs through a total of 60+ locations. No other vendor can provide consistent services across a geographic area this large. Global Knowledge Network is the largest independent information technology education company, offering programs on a variety of platforms.
This enables our multi-platform and multi-national customers to obtain all of their programs from a single vendor. The company has developed the unique Competence Key™ software tool and methodology, which can quickly reconfigure courseware to the proficiency level of a student on an interactive basis. Combined with self-paced and on-line programs, this technology can reduce the time required for training by prescribing content in only the deficient skills areas. The company has fully automated every aspect of the education process, from registration and follow-up, to "just-in-time" production of courseware. Global Knowledge Network, through its Competus consultancy, can customize programs and products to suit
the needs of an individual customer.
