The aim of the meeting was to exchange and share views about topics such as „How will we learn in the future?“, „How will demands on learning change in terms of consumerization of IT?“ and „How will globalization affect customer claims to the development and the provision of learning contents?”

Well-fitting the topic, the meeting took place at “Training Center of the Future” of the campus GmbH in Berlin, which the IT training provider and Microsoft Learning eXperiences team conceptualized beforehand and then opened it in April 2013 in close collaboration.

The US-American Corporation, which is currently reshaping their learning business to strategically align with the future market needs, will increasingly rely on global and diverse partners. Alison Cunard was impressed with the strength and diversity of the campus, to focus on advancing their internationalization: „For more than 20 years, the campus has been a forward-looking training partner, keeping up with the market needs. In areas of learning formations and innovation of learning delivery and content, the campus is an excellent example of a strong and strategic partner.”

Frank Mies, General Manager at the campus, stated that he was very happy with the meeting, saying: „Thanks to the excellent cooperation with Microsoft in the past years we have been able to bring many innovations to the German IT training market and establish them successfully. Learning itself is currently on a comprehensive change and we are very happy to analyze, develop and implement the concomitant changes in our industry together with Microsoft.“

Siegfried Schmauder, EVP BS T, emphasizes: „Particularly in this important time of structural change of learning, it makes us proud, that we can count on the close collaboration with Microsoft. It also gives us the certainty that we are extremely well positioned for the further expansion of our market position – also internationally.“

IT Training & Data Security TÜV Rheinland

IT-Trainings go International

IT-Trainings by TÜV Rheinland.
Vendor Authorized IT-Trainings Wordlwide.

The worldwide need for well qualified and certified IT professionals is very large.

IT Training & Data Security TÜV RheinlandTherefore one of the reasons for TÜV Rheinland was the acquisition of the training provider “the campus” to rapidly roll out IT-training portfolio internationally. A structured planning and a tight project management are necessary for a successful organization of the IT-training roll-outs. A pilot store was quickly found: the Academy in Poland started as first organization due to the proximity to campus in Berlin.

The colleagues on site prepared all further steps systematically: a comprehensive market and competitive analysis, the creation of personnel and technical resources as well as a consistent marketing and sales concept. As of March 2013, our subsideries in Warsaw and Zabrze (Upper Silesia) initially offer the Microsoft portfolio. Authorized trainings for products from other manufacturers such as Oracle, IBM, HP and Cisco will follow. In a next step the academies in South Africa, China and Spain are scheduled to establish the product lines of IT seminars within this year. Further countries will be follow in 2014.
