OTT Partners

Having partners who deliver our courses means that we can concentrate on the tasks of design and development to ensure our training materials meet the high standards you expect.

Our partners deliver our training programmes using our course materials under license. We choose our partners carefully for their expertise and their capability to bring you the best quality training to meet your needs. They are all industry professionals dedicated to helping you to learn to do things to a professional standard too. The trainers are all experts in their field, so they really know their subject in depth and have real world experience to help make the training come alive. Your trainer will really understand the subject and is not simply reading from a script.

Our partners enable us to make our courses available more easily in more regions around the world. See below to find out about the partner nearest to your location.
