This month, we have New Horizons IT training centres opening in three new locations around the world. Franchisees will be opening for business in Shanghai, Portsmouth and Kuala Lumpur. Although these locations may be far apart, each business will follow the same ethos that every New Horizon straining centre around the globe follows.

“We’re so pleased to welcome these franchisees to our ever growing network. We look forward to seeing their businesses flourish in very different markets and we will offer them the support they need to make their businesses successful,” explains Scott McDaniel, International Development Director.

Shanghai, is one of the world’s largest cities. It has a population of over 24 million people and as a global centre for commerce, is a city full of endless opportunity. The Shanghai team have done an amazing job in fitting out the state of the art training centre, which is of the highest standards in the city.

As well as the core CompTIA, Microsoft and Cisco courses, New Horizons Shanghai will also be offering training in RedHat, Mobile Development, Big Data, PMP, Agile and Scrum. Training will be offered in both English and Chinese and modalities will include Traditional Instructor Led, Online Live and Mentored Learning.

New Horizons Shanghai is looking forward to working with other centres in the network, and have already started collaboration with other New Horizons centres including Dubai and the Global OLL Group.

Their official launch took place on 23rd April with over 100 potential clients in attendance and the presence of key Vendor partners such as Microsoft, Pearson VUE and CompTIA.

“After the first interaction with New Horizons and having attended the yearly conference in 2014, I was left with a big impression and I saw the potential of having a powerful international brand for IT training services in the Chinese market. We are very excited to open the doors to Shanghai’s first New Horizons IT Learning Centre and feel so proud to have joined the family,” Jerry Zhang, owner.

“What a high energy and exciting launch event. The Shanghai team has created lots of excitement in the market at this early stage and I now know they will go from strength to strength,” Michael Smith, vice President of International Operations.
