New Horizons is the world’s leading independent IT training company. We have worked with every company in the Fortune 100, and have helped more than 30 million people build the technical, leadership and soft skills to boost their careers, transition to new careers, and help their employers thrive.

We have a great business, but more importantly we have a great mission: helping people and organizations reach their full potential.

A $368 billion industry

We’re currently growing in the United States and seeking out new franchise partners. Technical training is a $368 billion global industry. It’s also an industry with tremendous sustained demand, driven by ever-changing technologies.

Our franchisees are able to capture business by tapping into New Horizons’ combined expertise, which includes thousands of expert instructors in more than 200 training centers around the globe. As a franchisee, you have access to a massive knowledge base. Through you, your community has access to that knowledge base, too.

What we do

New Horizons started in 1982, and has thrived as a certified training partner for the largest IT companies in the world, including Microsoft, Apple, IBM, Cisco, CompTIA, Adobe, Citrix, VMware, Oracle, Google, and more.

We provide technical and skills-based training functions that a lot of HR departments are ill-equipped to handle. We work with everyone from small businesses that need a solution for building the skills of a valued employee, to large corporations that need additional or specialized training resources, to government organizations that need help with workforce development and career education.

IT training is only part of what we offer. Our education franchises also offer soft skills training to help people become more effective team members, and leadership training to help supervisors create productive and inspired teams.

When the company started, courses were overwhelmingly classroom-based. Thanks to advances in cloud computing — as well as tens of millions invested in infrastructure and online course development — franchisees are now able to offer cloud-based virtual classrooms, one-on-one online instruction, and self-paced online instruction.
