STOCKHOLM & RALEIGH, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--findcourses.com and TrainingIndustry.com today have released the world’s largest searchable database of corporate training providers and courses. The integrated search, available at no cost through both organizations’ websites, makes it possible to search among more than 3,500 companies who provide services to corporate training, and a catalog of more than 5,000 courses, organized by role, field or industry.
The searchable database may be reached from findcourses.com and TrainingIndustry.com. Users may search for courses in individual topics, courses offered by specific providers, or browse among provider and course listings. At each point in the user experience, related course, topic and provider links are displayed.
“We see this new partnership as an opportunity to combine the supplier resources and thought leadership of Training Industry with the course search functionality of findcourses.com. For the first time, companies and individuals can search through a complete database of professional education service providers,” according to Mattias Säker, COO and Co-Founder of Educations.com Media Group, the parent company of findcourses.com. “Users are able to easily search for the right training solution according to delivery method, location, price and upcoming dates, with a more complete view of each provider’s strengths and capabilities.”
“The Supplier Directory search on TrainingIndustry.com has been one of the most-visited parts of the site for more than a decade,” said Ken Taylor, president of Training Industry, Inc. “The directory has always been designed to help training professionals make informed decisions about the services and vendors they need to meet their organization’s training needs. The addition of course information is a natural extension that makes the directory even more useful.”
The integration links training provider courses with TrainingIndustry.com Top 20 and Watch List recognition, and also links each company’s profile information on findcourses.com with research and thought leadership content published in Training Industry Magazine and on TrainingIndustry.com.
The companies will exhibit the directory at the ATD International Conference & Exposition in Denver, May 23-25, at booths 755 and 756.
