Australian IT training company NextTech, has acquired the franchisee assets of US-based information technology training services provider New Horizons.

The acquisition includes New Horizons' leases in Brisbane, Sydney & Melbourne, and retaining key staff and "contact pathways".

The firm behind the acquisition, local training and development provider BSI People, has launched the NextTech brand to mark what it says is a new chapter in Australian IT training.

NextTech director and chairman at BSI Group Ivan Kaye says he is excited by the possibilities through the acquisition, commenting that “While we see opportunity ahead, we also believe it’s important to ensure continuity for all New Horizons’ clients”.

“BSI have delivered training and learning outcomes across Australia since 2002. Of course all training programmes and courses that were offered by New Horizons and booked will continue as normal. We’re also excited by some of the opportunities we’ll be able to bring in 2020 and in to the future.”

Kaye says BSI are well-placed to bring a fresh focus to IT training, with hands on experience in training and recruitment across government, corporate and private sectors.

“Seeing an opportunity to make a difference and change the way that IT training in Australia is being delivered, Nexttech has been formed to make this change, and to provide outcomes aligned to the needs & challenges ahead.

“The need for continual training in technology, upskilling and professional development has never been so necessary as it is today, with technology changing so fast that what was relevant two years ago, might now be redundant. That’s why NextTech will remain a place for people to upskill, learn, innovate and grow,” concluded Kaye.

Kaye says the NextTech Institute will continue to deliver Australian accredited qualifications to a world-class standard, “and look forward to further growth opportunities in 2020 & beyond”.
