Global Knowledge Network wins national multimedia award for innovative training course; Windows NT System Administration recognized as one of the year's best products.

WALTHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 12, 1996--Windows NT System Administration, a new computer based training (CBT) course from Global Knowledge Network Inc., has won a national multimedia award as one of the year's most innovative products, based on creative excellence, technical innovation and effectiveness of communication.

The eight-hour CD-ROM training course was selected for a Gold INVISION award for product training and customer support by NewMedia magazine from among 900 entries.

Windows NT System Administration is an in-depth training course that uses the latest in multimedia technology to guide users through a simulated business installing and using Microsoft Windows NT. The product's interactive multimedia format allows users to get hands-on experience of Windows NT installation and work impact issues before doing it at their own business site.

"We're particularly pleased to have been awarded the Gold INVISION because it confirms our commitment to be the best in quality. We're also pleased that the award was for Windows NT since we are Microsoft's largest Authorized Technical Education Center in the world," said Duncan Anderson, vice president, marketing and alliances.

"This award is significant because it represents a turning point in the computer industry. We've now reached the stage where one new technology, such as multimedia, can be used as an enabler to develop competence for another technology, like Windows NT. In the past, learning new technologies was often limited to trial and error methods, which for the enterprise could represent huge hidden costs," Anderson continued.

"We're pleased Global Knowledge Network has been awarded the Gold INVISION award. They've been providing Microsoft customers and other IT professionals with quality technical training and innovative products for many years. This award certainly demonstrates their commitment to be one of the world's leading training providers," said Nancy Lewis, director, Microsoft channel programs, education and certification.

"I needed to be brought up to speed quickly on the system administration features of Windows NT. Global Knowledge Network's Windows NT System Administration training course allowed me to focus on the specific skills I needed to meet my deadline. Its interface is excellent and the level of interactivity is tremendous -- it was a great investment," said Edward T. McAvinn, system administrator, New York Life.

Global Knowledge Network offers unique fixed price services for corporate clients implementing major migrations such as Microsoft Windows 3x to Microsoft Windows 95, supporting thousands of users on a global basis. The company is the largest independent IT training provider in the market today and a key Microsoft Authorized Technical Education Center network with more than 70 authorized sites in 36 countries. Global Knowledge Network has 35 years experience in the IT industry and employs over 600 dedicated training professionals. -0- Microsoft, Microsoft Windows NT and Microsoft Windows 95 are registered trademarks of Microsoft Corp.
