Organizations use KnowledgeAdvisors to access its measurement expertise, on-demand software and integrated human capital analytics to ensure a high-performing workforce.

Using KnowledgeAdvisors’ Metrics That Matter, a proprietary evaluation tool used to assess training effectiveness, New Horizons ranks first or second in five of the six effectiveness criteria when measured against all companies and organizations. Performance data is shared monthly with all learning centers so they can continuously improve. The number of learning centers that exceeded New Horizons’ performance goal increased by 15 percent.

Additionally, New Horizons honors its best locations with a “5-Star Award”, given annually to those locations that demonstrate the highest level of quality according to the Metrics That Matter standards. Since inception, the number of centers to receive the award has increased by 50 percent.

“It’s a great honor to win KnowledgeAdvisors’ inaugural Customer Education award,” said Mark Miller, chief executive officer of New Horizons Computer Learning Centers. “It validates our commitment to deliver the highest quality IT training in the world, and further demonstrates why we are the largest educational institution dedicated to meeting the needs of the expanding market for qualified IT professionals.”
