Austin, TX (PRWEB) July 07, 2015
360training.com has expanded their IT technical certification and IT skills end user training library by completing the strategic acquisition of MasterLink Training under the QuickStart Intelligence brand. With the completion of this acquisition, 360training.com expands their geographic presence and their portfolio of IT training solutions. MasterLink Training is one of the leading providers in professional development, with certified IT instructors who give clients the tools to demonstrate their value within their organizations. The company now joins 360training.com’s impressive portfolio of IT skills training courses, which spans across almost every IT category.
“The acquisition of MasterLink Training, a provider of IT technical certification and end user IT training, is part of long term growth strategy and we are excited to have them as a part of our portfolio of eLearning marketplace offerings,” said 360training.com CEO Ed Sattar. “Instructor led training is slowly losing market share to pure eLearning providers. We see this acquisition as a great opportunity to acquire IT Skills content and existing customers, and then augment their traditional training initiatives with online, on- demand IT training and online instructor led training. As a leader in offering the most comprehensive eLearning marketplace solution, our goal is to offer the most extensive and complete eLearning and live training programs to our customers, and by adding MasterLink Training to our family we have now broadened our portfolio.”
“The MasterLink Training staff has been like family to me over the past ten years so it is very important to me that we become part of an organization where my team, and more importantly, our clients will be well taken care of,” said Karen Kostrewa, former owner and CEO of MasterLink Training. “360training.com has the quality, reputation, and resources that MasterLink Training’s clients have come to expect. Their national presence and the management and maturity of processes and efficiencies will help make MasterLink Training that much more successful. The blending of additional offerings from both MLT and 360training.com affords both companies the ability to provide a wider variety of training and services, and I am excited to see the company move to the next level.”
MasterLink’s customers not only have access to IT training solutions for their employees through a single provider, but also have access to 360training.com’s library of workforce compliance courses as well as QuickStart’s leading QS Live Remote Training Platform, which includes the ability to experience the highest quality live training from anywhere in the world.
Each with their unique strengths in IT training, the integration of MasterLink and 360training.com will expand the companies already comprehensive IT catalog ranging from IT technical certification training to IT skills end user training. This acquisition now elevates the online training pioneer to a national training leader, with a footprint from the West Coast to the Midwestern and Southern United States.
